Quite right Christene.
Some years ago,a workmate of mine was urgently trying to contact me at
home,But he didn't have my telephone number.
He looked in the Telephone Directory,but couldn't see my name.
When I finally heard from him in work a few days later,I couldn't
understand why he couldn't find me in that directory?
So upon looking myself I could see too,that I was missing.
I tried my first name of Robert which I never use these days only
on some e.mail addresses,No,Couldn't fine me.
Then did a combination of Robert Graham or even R.G;WILLIAMS.
Still no good.
Then I wondered,Perhaps they mis-spelt my surname?
Then I though,NO! How do you mis-spell "WILLIAMS?"I mean come on.One
of the most popular names in the U.K;
But guess what?
It WAS mis-spelt.They had me down as " R.WILLAIMS."
That was in the old days when I was lumbered with B.T;
I played all hell with them on the phone.
Most Appoligetic they were.
But after another Telephone company was allowed to operate in this
Country I swapped.
As I said,This was a long time ago.
Before computers,that is.
