Something to do during the idle moments...

Do you frequent coffee-shops? Do you frequent coffee-shops that ask for your name and then yell it all over the shop when your concoction is ready?

Excellent! Then try this give someone elses name when they ask for your name. Or, give the name of a famous person. Give an inanimate object as your name (eg Red Triangle).
See if you can get the brew-meister to shout 'latte for Green Lantern' or some such. Give your fellow drinkers something to puzzle over...

Hi Adil! Great blog. I absolutely love it and check it everyday ;)
I used to do something like you suggest, but would give them the most difficult name I could think of, like "Genevieve". Either they couldn't spell it, or they couldn't pronounce it. Always works.

Aye. Perhaps one could also get a group of friends, queue up and all use the same name (such as McTricycle).

neat idea! Too bad it wouldn't work in
the bars in Italy... I'll try it
at Starbuck in Geneva! :-)

You're right. But, in Italy you could ask for a mokkaicedshakkachino. Then ask who's is the white lambretta that the police have accidentally crushed.
Could work.
