Yesterday, I called a day spa to make pedicure appointments for my sister and my mom and I. It is a fun and relaxing annual tradition. When I called, the receptionist asked me if I had been there before. I said yes. She asked me for the first three letters of my last name. I said G-I-D. She was quiet for a minute, presumably looking my name up in the computer. Then she asked, "Did you say G as in garbage?"
"I guess it's G as in garbage, I never really think of it that way." It struck me funny and I started laughing, then Gid started laughing and then I had a really hard time getting through the process of making the reservation. She was flustered and didn't even ask me for a credit card to hold the slot, and then called back a few minutes later to clarify the date. People probably don't usually get the giggles on the phone with "Re:fresh, A Day Spa". But i'm still laughing about it. Why would someone say "G as in garbage"!?
