The dash don't be silent

so a friend told me this story and I just had to share. She says it's true and I'm inclined to believe her.

A woman was admitted to the hospital and on her forms she wrote that her name was La-a. The nurses were trying to pronounce here name as Leia, Lyia. The woman became angry and corrected them, "my name's Ladasha, the dash don't be silent"
