I do get the occasional complaint doing my job. I might upset the odd person with a comment I make, but this is just me having an opinion and being engaging, which I think is the whole point of being on the radio.
Some complaints though are just silly. Last weekend a man rudely complained about the incorrect pronunciation of the village of Longham in Dorset. ‘It’s Long-ham not Long-um’ he insisted, although everyone else pronounces it the latter way. He was so rude I almost drove to Longham to paint out the H.
So from now on it’s Bosh-um, Bore-hunt and Saris-bury Green and I’ll divert the phones to that gentleman’s number so he can answer the complaints.
