I just have to say it.

After very frustrating dealings all day with renovators, internet support personnel, and building managers, I'd really, really, really like to do business with someone with a command of English.
I mentioned this to SP, and of having to find a way to explain that I was Saying "F" and not "S," and that "As in Frank" didn't help, so I'd finally said "as in France," which clicked. SP told of a time he's had to spell his entire address out to an East Indian, using the names of Indian cities as example. When his Indian geography failed him, he'd switched to meals off of an Indian Restaurant menu.
