THE MANY FUNNY NAMES THAT I KNOW
I have been in the business at a call center for a long time now, and the many names that I have encountered during those times makes me crack up and laugh to myself while I am working... while my co-workers are all giving me a funny look. I don't explain it to them the reason, since I am the only pinoy in my dept. I am the only one who has the benefit of being amused, while the rest are all hyped and upset because the callers are all cursing, yelling and screaming on the fon.

Mrs. Kiki is from Greece. It is not a bad name for them, but it sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mr. Tarrugo is from Mexico. It is not a bad name for them, but sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mrs. Labatete is from Africa. It is not a bad name for them, but it sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mrs. Quepu is from Spain. It is not a bad name for them, but sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mr. Ouutong is from France. It is not a bad name for them, but sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mrs. Paa is from the Domican republic. It is not a bad name for them, but sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mr. LinTek is from China. It is not a bad name for them, but it sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mrs. Bolbol is from Ethiopia. It is not a bad name for them, but it sure sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mrs. Puqueresma is from Chile. It is not a bad name for them, but it sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mrs. Caocao is from Taiwan. It is not a bad name for them, but it sounds strange for us pinoy.

Mr. Tiebe is from the Carribbean. It is not a bad name for them, but is sounds strange for us pinoy.

I don't know why our language has a different way of interpreting things from a different culture and race. Ooooops, I am not making this up. These are names that i have really encountered in my line of work for the past ten years.

    Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how cam across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

    My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a male enhancement reviews related site focusing on male enhancement reviews and mens health related topics.
