You Don't Get Many Kids Called Clytemnestra, Either

Just took a telephone query I couldn't handle, so I asked for the caller's details so my boss could get back to her. I wrote down her number...

ME [brightly]: OK, and it's Electra, right?
CALLER: Er, no...

And I realised that what she had said at the start of our conversation was not "Hello, I'm Electra at Oxford Brookes" but "Hello, I'm a lecturer at Oxford Brookes".

Her actual name was the far less interesting Sharon.
