Klyad, your order is ready

It’s been a while since I’ve been to Rubio’s and even longer since I’ve given them a fuax name but this one really takes the cake.

If you want to catch up on this saga, then click on the NEW category called Rubio’s but the super-short version is, I give them a name and they find interesting ways to spell it. Today’s creative spelling was KLYAD. Now I understand that some names are not common place and a little creative spelling is in order but to go from what I said to that is like spelling Grand Canyon -> Garun Konion (ooh, I should use that next time). Anyway, I’m sure you’re wondering what on earth did I say my name was to get KLYAD. Unfortunately, I’m trying to draw this out in an effort to draw you in and make you a regular reader (after all, I’m looking for a long term relationship, not just a quickie). Of course I can only keep this up for so long so without further ado…

…clyde. That’s what I said. not KLYAD. Some may argue that the employees of Rubio’s deserve a little slack since they are typically of Hispanic backgrounds and either don’t know the language very well or are not familiar with these Anglican names but believe me when I say “that’s not the case”. First, most speak English very well and appear to be second or third generation (meaning they may not even speak Spanish themselves) and second, who guesses how to spell names like that. If you don’t know, than ask. you can’t hide the fact you don’t know if they print it on the receipt. So ask, or at least guess close to the right spelling. Try this Klide, or this Clyed (past tense of to cly? oh wait, that’s Clied)

Maybe I’m being too harsh. Maybe I should use more familiar names like Jose – but then again, they spelled that Joce.

    […] of a common name with 101 different spellings like Ashley/Ashlee/Ashlei/Ashlie/Ashly. I mean like Klyad, Georsh, and Toast. Ok so they got the last one right but that’s another […]

    Maybe you don’t pronounce Jose very clearly? Was it ho-say rather than the correct ho-zay? Did you pronounce it Joe-say, which would be even more misleading?

    archshrk responds: Good point but I think I was pretty clear and accurate. Give it a try sometime and let me know how it goes.
