phonetic alphabet...
I recently had to move house and you know what that means: lots of call centre phoning!

So first stop was the bank account and everything was going swimmingly, until I reached the postcode.
Me: "Yes: 0-F-Y - that's zero, foxtrot, wankee - oh no - I mean wankee, no Yankee!!" I think the call centre lady fell off her seat.
Try it, it's actually quite tricky to say when you only have the letters in front of you.

Whats worse is the more I worried about it the more I said 'wankee' - to at least 3 more call centres. Argh, the shame.

Had years of practice in the Scouts.
Bloody helpful when calling foreign call centres.

I placed an order with one of my suppliers once...
...and gave them the order number "C for bravo, B for charlie".

That confused them!

And embarrassed me :)
