Alpha..Bravo..Charlie..hello!!

Posted on January 11, 2006. Filed under: Komentar - Passing thoughts and opinions |

I know that sometimes it is difficult to understand what others are saying on the phone, especially when the person is spelling a word or a code. Thus, for airlines companies, when they answer your phone calling to confirm your ticket, they will expect you not to say ASZ 234 (for example), but Alpha Sierra Zulu 234.

Fine, when you know that Alpha, Sierra, and Zulu should stand for ASZ. But what is wrong if I say, Alpha Santa Zero 234. Isn't it the same? Why did the person at the end of the line treat me like I am some kind of idiot?

Forgive me if I don't work in travel related bussines, but who decided that Sierra stands for S and that Santa cannot stand for the alphabet S anyway. Yes, I said Santa not Fanta…S not F.

How about if I make my own rule? Asterix, Batman, Cubitus, etc. Let's see if you can "spell" my way.

Ha3x.. I have a draft on my blog exactly on this topic pit..

However, I guess it is a matter of a standard, we can’t make our own rules since people have different interest and knowledge, it has a possibility to be misunderstood.

Do what I do, I print out this phonetic alphabets near the phone and save the list digitally on my PDA, it can come handy when you need it, except if you determined to memorize them.

Btw, the heroes and cartoon characters was a brilliant idea anyway, ha3x..

Aha, here I use spanish alphabet
A stands for Avila, B – Barcelona, C from Caceres, D from Dedo, E from España…

You probably was attended by an idiot…

I’m fine here, I’m having a rest at home, reading books or go out shopping…:) sale’s time…he he

Wira: Ya..keduluan deh. Makanya jangan lama2 hiatus atuh. Standardisasi boleh2 aja, tapi jangan sampai menghambat kreatifitas dong..*ngeles*

Naga: Waduh, ternyata ada yang Spanyolnya toh. Lha yang Inggris aja nggak hapal.

Sale..sale..musim yang menggembirakan tapi kadang mendatangkan rasa bersalah. Saya sudah seminggu di rumah saja, takut tergoda sale..hihihi.
