Spelling Out Words

Monday, June 16, 2008 | | 0 comments »

I have to call customer service for something or other about every other day, and I always have to spell out something, whether it's my name or address. The problem is that I can never think of an easily discernible, short, and well-known word that sounds unlike any other word quickly enough. For example, my name, Adam. A, as in Apple, D, as in dog, A, as in... etc. Sounds easy, but it's not, especially when the pressure's on. So, I've taken it upon myself to learn the military alphabet. Not only will it save me some time, but it's awesome. In case you don't know it, here it is:

A: Alpha
B: Bravo
C: Charlie
D: Delta
E: Echo
F: Foxtrot
G: Golf
H: Hotel
I: India
J: Juliet
K: Kilo
L: Lima
M: Mike
N: November
O: Oscar
P: Papa
Q: Quebec
R: Romeo
S: Sierra
T: Tango
U: Uniform
V: Victor
W: Whiskey
X: X-Ray
Y: Yankee
Z: Zulu

It's not hard to learn, so it's definitely worth the 10 minutes I'll spend learning it.

Golf, Oscar, Oscar, Delta, November, India, Golf, Hotel, Tango.
