Mrs. Allanimal

So at work we have this intercom system, so that if you aren't at your desk and someone really needs to get a hold of you, you can be paged via a loudspeaker in every room.

So, today, I was paged. But instead of the guy saying "Herr Doktor Allanimal" (OK, the doktor bit I made up), apparently it was "Frau Allanimal".

For the Germanically-challenged, that means everyone for the next two hours had a good laugh when they saw me, since they paged "Mrs. Allanimal" instead of "Mr. Allanimal".

Ha ha very funny. Maybe it would have been if I hadn't been having a crappy day already.
