today i learned – sun 15th apr 2018

we’ve had a few more funny facts this year than we have before πŸ‘πŸ» #humourisgood

today’s is no different! i’ve pretty much chosen it because it made me lol πŸ˜‚

#tdil a dude has changed his name to ‘tim pppppppppprice’ to make it harder for cold callers πŸ™ˆ

this story is sheer brilliance! like, we all get super annoyed at nuisance phone calls about accidents we’ve never been in or ppi that we may or may not be entitled to …

but, have you ever been so annoyed that you decided to change your name solely to make it impossible for cold callers to pronounce? πŸ˜‚

well, 49-year-old, tim price of leicestershire fame did πŸ™ˆ deciding to add nine addition p’s to his surname πŸ˜…

now super difficult for anyone to get off their tongue stick, it’s apparently pronounced ‘tim per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-rice’ πŸ™ˆ

tim says that he doesn’t regret changing his name and says that he finds it hilarious πŸ‘πŸ» that said, in the interview that i read, he didn’t allude to whether it actually worked πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

anyway, if you ever meet tim and need to pronounce his full name … apparently the short version is tim ’10p’ price #shorthand

i absolutely adore this πŸ˜‚ it’s the perfect demonstration of both humour and how darn annoying all of those phone calls are πŸ“ž

i travel to leicestershire quite a lot … so i really hope i get to meet this legend one day 😱 right, before i go … how do you avoid nuisance phone calls? let me know in the comments below 😜

peace yo πŸ€™πŸ» #tdil
