Seriously. There are insufferable people in every enthusiast group; most of his jokes can be applied to off road/overlandy types in general. But the duck thing can not be defended. I got one on my jeep so far, and if I had seen who done it we would have been in a fist fight.

Many years ago I worked in a call canter for student loan repayment and I called a woman named La-a Brown. Now, we had a fair number of Polynesian borrowers with lots of hyphens and apostrophes in them, so I did my best and asked for "La 'Ay Brown". She very quickly and rudely corrected me and said, "It's LaDASHa. The DASH ain't silent!"

I may have gotten in trouble for laughing.

My sister went to school with an Abcde. Pronounced Ab-sid-ee. Apparently a substitute was calling roll, reached that girl’s name and didn’t know what to say so said, “Uh, alphabet (last name)”
