GUEST,Bruce Baillie what phrases do you hate? (187* d) RE: what phrases do you hate? 11 Aug 06


...And then there are the bastards who mispronounce my name! usually from some call centre in Delhi, I pick up the phone and on the other end there is some obviously, Indian guy pretending to be called 'Phillip' or 'Charles' (because they mistakenly believe you'll warm to their sales patter if you think they're English)and asking to speak to 'Mr. Barley' or 'Mr. Beeley'...well that's when I start to pretend to be Chinese!

...but then that's the start of another thread on 'HOW TO DEAL WITH THOSE IRRITATING SALES WANKERS WHO PHONE UP WHILE YOU'RE HAVING YOUR TEA!
