Wish everyone knew phonetic alphabet

Especially those spelling their names in phone messages.

B, C, D, E, G, P, T, V and Z sound alike, as you know.

But Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Golf, Papa, Tango, Victor and Zulu, well, those come through loud and clear.



Just wanted to see if that would fit on one line.

Tempted to employ this on the phone?

Be my guest. But there's an excellent chance you'll just hear the person in India say “So your name is Carol Tango?”
