Your good name madam?

March 1, 2009

I just ordered pizza. My first home delivery in Dubai. In the first few days here I received a flyer with some vouchers in it from a delivery guy and I kept trying to order. So tonight I decided it’s time to take advantage of that offers and made the call. Being my first order I had to register, that is, give my phone number, address and name. I understood all the questions until the name one:

” What is you good name, madam?”

” Excuse me, what?!?”

” Your good name, madam”

      What’s your goodname is adapted from the Hindi phrase”Aapka (Your) Shubh(good) naam (name) kya (what) hai(is)? which is commonly used in India.The Indian influence is quite strong in UAE because of their presence for many years.

    I don’t think it actually matters as they will get it wrong anyway 🙂
