So, I'm on the phone this morning with a woman from tech support and she's reading me a pass phrase as follows (not the actual password, but you get the idea here):
"Ok, sir, the password is: Arr as in Robert, Tee as in Todd, four, Eee as in Elbow..." and she goes on until she's completed the 8-digit password. Then she asked me to repeat it back.
So I repeated the password as, "Arr as in Romeo, Tee as in Tango..."
At which point she interrupted me, "No sir, that's incorrect. It's Arr as in Robert, Tee as in Todd..." and she proceeded through the whole thing again.
Me: "Uh, sorry I was in the Navy, I tend to use military phonetics."
Tech Support: "Yeah, sorry I didn't realize that. Please repeat the password again."
Me: "Arr as in Romeo..."
Tech Support: "No, sir, no. I don't know where you're getting this 'romeo' from, it's Arr as in Robert."
Me "OK, isn't the Arr in Romeo the same as the Arr in Robert?"
Tech Support: "No sir, Romeo and Robert are different."
Me "Right. Thanks I got it. Bye."
