Some of the most-common time-wasters among new contesters I hear are:

1. Unnecessarily repeating phonetics. In most cases, you should be able to say “nq6n five nine emm bee”. 
Only if it’s really challenging or a fill has been requested does it make sense to say “november 
quebec….” He knows who he is!

Not necessarily. I run across many situations where the station calling me has a weak command of the English language, and doesn't recognize his/her call spoken in English. For some stations calling from certain countries, I always repeat back the call phonetically, using the same phonetics they called me with.
