‘YUM’or M

Today morning, I called up the report section of a hospital, to follow up on a health report and wanted them to email it to me. This is how the conversation went:

Customer Health Executive (C.H.E) : Thank you for calling xxxxxxx hospitals, how can I help you today?

Me : I had the test done on xxxx date. I wanted to check if the reports are ready?

C.H.E : Kindly be on line ma’am, while I check on the same.

Me : Sure, thanks.

C.H.E : Thank you for being on line Ma’am. Yes your reports are ready.

Me : Can you please email the reports to me ?

C.H.E : Sure ma’am. Can I have your email id please?

Me : It’s deepikaM xxxxxxx @XXXXX.com

C.H.E : Yes ma’am, I’ll email it.

Me : Could you please repeat the email id?

C.H.E : deepika N (N as in Nagaland) xxxxx @ XXXXX.com

Me : No,No, it’s deepika M, M as in Madras..

C.H.E : N as in Nagaland…?

Me : No, not Nagaland, It’s M as in Madras/ Mangalore

C.H.E : Oh, okay it is deepika ‘M’ (pronouncing it as ‘YUM’), Must be contemplating, hmmm.. I wonder why these people can’t get their pronunciations right 😦

Me : Yes please !! Thank You !!

I realized, I have learnt my alphabets and phonics all wrong πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I need to be trained all over again to pronounce M as ‘YUM’ and also, to remember to complement my mom next time, on her dish, saying it’s really M
