Some things you need to know about me..

 

I Love My Family.

 

I work in a busy office, and I deal with Joe Public every single day.  

 

I also have a long surname and day by day I invent new ways of trying to spell it to different people over the phone.

 

I am good at the phonetic alphabet.  Or so I think until I actually try and use it.  

 

“Eltringham, so how are you spelling that?”

 

“That’s E for Elephant, L for Lemons, T for Thomas, R for Rainbows, I for Insurance…”  and so on…

 

I often grab for words that usually end up being a bit ruder out loud then expected.  

 

“That’s N for Nuts…”

 

But that is nothing.  Nothing compared to my little sister and her ways of spelling our annoyingly long surname.  This is what happened:

 

“Eltringham, so how are you spelling that?”

 

“Thats E, L, T, then Ring as in Finger Ring….”

 

I love my family.
