Below is a real telephone conversation one of my coworkers just had. We work in higher ed. We have many international students. But this was not one of them.
“May I speak with Gina?
You mean Jenna? She no longer works here.
Uh ok, what is your name?
No Chrissy with a C.
Tracey with a Z?
NO, Chrissy with a Chr.
What? You are going to have to spell that for me Tracey.”
