    A Spelling Konflict

    | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Language & Words

    (A customer is looking for an icy-pole maker.)

    Me: “Okay, now you said you were after a certain brand name?”

    Customer: “Yes, all I know is that it starts with a ‘K’.”

    (We do not currently stock any icy-pole related products by brands starting with a ‘K’, but we do have some starting with a ‘C’.)

    Me: “Are you sure it wasn’t one of these ones here, miss? We have—”

    Customer: “No, no! I’ll know it when I see it. It definitely starts with ‘K’. Oh look, there it is!”

    Me: “Um… are you sure, miss? That machine is by the Zoku brand.”

    Customer: “Yes, that’s it! Zoku! It start’s with a ‘K’! ‘K’ for Zoku!”
