I just got off the phone with UPS — someone mailed a package to my office without specifying which floor of the building to send it to. I’m not exactly sure how they tracked down my phone number, but I suppose it’s better not to ask. Anyway, I was trying to explain to the lady how to spell “Ziff-Davis” without much success:
“So that’s V as in Van…”
“No, Z. As in Zebra. Z-I-F-F D-A-V-I-S. Ziff-Davis Media.”
“OK, so that’s Z as in Xylophone….”
That’s when I gave up.
