    If you work in customer service, it's probably a pretty good rule of thumb not to wisecrack customer names.

    True, but also if you are a parent, it's a pretty good rule of thumb not to name your kid Abcde.

    Doesn't make sense. Has to be all caps or all lowercase.

    This is exactly what I thought.

    I have a five year old great niece. They are well aware of the world around them.

    Maybe she's a file clerk or librarian.

    Imagine this exchange:

    Customer Service Rep: What is your name, please?
    Girl: A-bee-see-ty.
    Customer Service Rep: How do you spell that?
    Girl: A B C D E

    If the customer service rep tries really hard to stifle the laugh, but succumbs. ... is it really his or her fault?

    When we would get calls at work from parents who said we misspelled their kid's name, we'd say, "No we didn't, you did."
