The other day i discovered that the telephone number a male friend/fellow coworker gave me was actually a wrong number. I was really hurt that he'd lied to me and sent him an email letting him know. He responded back and apologized, then blamed the misunderstanding on the fact he is dyslexic.

I have to say, i am a little skeptical about his claim as he didnt write his number down, instead he stated the number and i wrote it down. It was several digita off. Could dyslexia explain this? Or am i dealing with a jerk that i should write off?

I apologize for using this forum for relationship advice, but i know little about dyslexia and am curious about this.

A couple of details to add, the guy in question is an attorney and seems to be a good writer. I do realize however, that computers/spell check could probably assist with this.

I am dyslexic I am super bad with numbers I transpose them all the time. A lot of smart people are Dyslexic.I can repeat a number and still copy down wrong as I am saying it. It is horrible and embarassing at times. If I can,.. I have someone else write them for me. A professional could have someone else doing his writing for him. I do good when it is something I am familar with. New stuff or something I am not really interested I can mess up in a heartbeat and not on purpose. It is really hard for me.

I cannot remember numbers and have to ask several times for people to repeat them which really ticks them off. Even so i still get it wrong some times.

Dsylexia can affect, like me, short term memory. This means recalling numbers, using new words and spelling them wrong, cannot add up in your head. I still use my fingers to add up and i am 25.

I guess it was hard for this guy to tell you he was dyslexic and as an employee you should be supportive of difference in your work place.

I got good grades in english too, this has no bearing on wether some one is dsylexic or not.

I suggest you google dsylexia.
