At Work / In the Office : Plate Pronounciation
While working as an agricultural inspector at a border crossing, Joe
found that addressing people in an informal manner relieved their
nervousness and minimized problems. One day when a car with the vanity
license plate "TZVECL" stopped for inspection, Joe approached the driver
and said, "How are you, Mr. Tzvecl?"
"Your pronunciation is fine," the driver replied, "but that's not my
name. I'm an optometrist, and those are the letters on the bottom line
of my eye chart."
