    It's a win for the "won't".

    Not really the issue. I can't finish a hamburger these days. Great for the figure.

    I'm constantly surprised by the multiple iterations of my name. This was ordered over the phone on a busy night, and there was significant background noise. They did get the order right though. :)

    In a restaurant it's more important to get the smelling right than the spelling.

    However, one of my cousins can type ~80 words a minute, if you disregard the time spent choosing the correct spelling of words like "agenda".

    There was an Aussie named "Aggro", IIRC.

    Octo and Aggo are good ones, very good ones. On my bookshelf I have a stack of receipts from various establishments, all of them with a wide variety of iterations of "Otto". I need to make a list sometime.

    Otto correct keeps changing "Toto" to "Otto".

    At least you cannot go vert wrong in Europe if you say pöllö or möllö. Of Course George W in Madrid said he want to see the Eiffel tower. Ou jes sir.
