Pronunciation: af front per son

Sentence: Venoma had found the perfect job. She worked as an affrontperson for the telephone company at their fancy head office. It was jokingly called the Customer Service Dept; but employees there were encouraged to trade insults with patrons, both in person and over the phone. She worked with 2 others, Rudy & Curt and she always won the insult competitions the department had each week. Her family motto was, "The best defence is a good offense" and she strived to live up to that motto. Imagine her surprise when they were all told that the company was closing shop locally and farming it's business overseas...globalization it was called. But Venoma landed on her feet by being sent overseas to train the new employees on how to insult the customers, even with a strong foreign accent.
