Great Moments in Misunderstanding

I visited Steve's place on Saturday for some gaming, and Steve generously allowed me access to his home wifi. But I had some trouble typing in the password (password changed to protect Steve's wifi):

STEVE: Okay, ready? Sierra, Tango, Alfa...
EARL (murmuring): S, i, e, r...whoa slow down, sorry.
STEVE (in disbelief): Are you...are you spelling that out? Dude, do you not understand the phonetic alphabet?

As if that wasn't embarrassing enough, Steve had his younger daughter Glory come downstairs for a challenge: to see which one of us could spell out my name using the phonetic alphabet faster.

She won.
