Many moons ago I used to work with a Mike Hunt. On a plant shutdown I needed to get hold of him or his side kick, Tony Havercroft, who were sharing a walkie-talkie. Convinced that I couldn’t say Mike Hunt over the radio without cracking up I went for the safe option, but got it all wrong and called him Tony Hovercraft. He wasn’t impressed.Posted 8 years agoMrsPoddyMember
I have worked with a Mr Mann, Ben Down met a Mr Tickle who pronounced it tickel. Had to put a tannoy call out for a Mrs Verjee who did surprisingly not respond to the Mrs Virgin announcement. Went out a few times with a guy with the surname Bucket. Also knew a guy whose name was Keiron Burke he always said his name was Keiron Neil Oswald Burke not too sure how true that was.Posted 8 years ago
