The funniest thing that has happened to you at work?

When doing a cheque order we have to give the customer our address so that they can send their cheque. I took a call for an old aged pensioner, who had difficulty hearing. So the first line of the address, which is eSpares Ltd, took 10 minutes for the customer to spell correctly. Then the rest of the address took another 25 minutes (Unit 13-14 Chelsea Wharf, 15 Lots Road, London SW10 0QJ). She then asked me for my name, which to my surprise the customer couldn’t spell but was adamant that she would take it, so that took another 10 minutes for her to jot down. And it was only for an order that was under £10 but we both laughed at the situation.
