    It tends to have been my sister who worked call centre jobs rather than myself, but she did tell me that, whilst working for the Wine Society, one of the names on her list was for a Major Bustard...and another for a very old lady who was genuinely called Fanny Tickler.

    Today there was someone with the name Herman Wancke (wanker). The caller refused to phone him for fear of laughing.

    A friend of mine once had an appointment at Siemens to meet a Mr Fellatio.

    I have also encountered a Russell Sprout and a German guy called Friek Munster.

    The job I would love to move away from is that of solicitor but I still have to go to court. On Saturday I had a Chinese named Fuqing Wang. The magistrate declined to pronounce his name (actually pronounced Fooching). One of my first Chinese clients was a Mr Fok.

    The best combination of names and circumstances came when I attended the Crown Court to make a bail application one Christmas Eve. Of the 3 defendants making applications on that day the only one who succeeded was Mr Christmas represented by Mr Carol. Charles Dickens couldn't have made it up.

    The best customer names I've come across are -

    Deepa Toufanny

    Mr Biggadicke

    Holly Wood

    Also, whilst taking a phone order, I've asked a customer "What card are you using?" and they've replied "An Audi A4."

    Oh and I've dealt with a customer email that went along the lines of...

    "hello am interested in buyin a drivin xperience 4my boyf or sumthin fast like a furrari or lambokini or anyfin, can u giv me sum prices n call me on 07XXX XXXXXX thx alot"

    ...all written in the title of the email!!! And finally, I had a customer complaint about an afternoon tea experience and the size of the finger sandwiches (1" x 3") and how it was against trading standards?!? You've got to love customer services and the general public :o/

    The one I always mention is the plumber in Buxton who has had to go through life with the name Paul Mycock which can easily be misheard on an introduction.
