It’s been an ultra busy week at work.
This morning, a letter lands on my desk from Yellow Pages offering a free business listing.
To avoid adding yet more to the mountain of untouched papers already sitting on my desk, I give them a call straight away.
Firstly, I ask what the catch is. The fella on the other end of the phone tells me there isn’t one. So we talk shop for a while and I tell him about what we do. He asks me a few questions, I answer them. Simple.
Finally, he asks my name. “Chris”, I said, “…and I’ll spell my surname for you…” proceeding then to spell out my last name using the phonetic alphabet.
“Ok, thank you very much, now, is that Miss or Mrs?” he asks.
