Customer service: what is your email address?

Me: M as in Mom, F as in Frank (blah blah blah)

Customer Service: ok got it. M as on Monolouge and S as in Sam?

Me: No. F as in Frank. (Mononlogue really? Ok.)

Customer Service: Ohhh F as in Fox Trot!

Fox Trot??? REALLY?

Foxtrot is the military designation for F, right? But where the heck did monologue come from?

Foxtrot has been around since the mid-50's when NATO standardized the phonetic alphabet. I think it was just Fox before that (because I wasn't around then ). So M as in Mike, F as in Foxtrot, blah as in Bravo Lima Alpha Hotel

My email address starts with my 3 initials (for my maiden name); whenever I'm giving it to someone I say: L as in Larry; M as in Mary; S as in Sam. None of those are my names--why don't I just use my real names??

See? There it is. I've been saying all along that "Y" isn't a real letter.

Ok, ok...why no Y?

ETA:
I'm guessing because it's not confused with anything else...
