NICKNAMES I GAVE THE PEOPLE I INTERACT WITH REGULARLY, SO AS NOT TO LEARN THEIR NAMES
Inspired by @siddharthainc
- •"Little Brown Girl." Short Hawaiian gal who checks receipts at Costco.She's got multiple name tags, including one that reads "Little Brown Girl," so really, it's her nickname, but I use it. Also, she's like 65, so not really a "girl" except in spirits.
- •"Tall Woman On The Right." She's a secretary at the school I work at. I've known her for eight years. Why can't I remember her name?!She's got a nameplate right in front of her that I see at least twice a week, so there's really no excuse.
- •"Cute Neighbor." This actually applies to two women and I don't have different nicknames for them. I've lived less than six houses from each of them for two years. Introduced myself and learned their names twice. I can't ask again. They're both super hot and both have weird husbands.
- •"Humbert and Bernice." These are a mated pair of hummingbirds that eat regularly at our feeder. "Bert and Bernie" for short.I keep asking their real names, they keep flying away.
- •"Necklace Tattoo." Mom of a kid I used to work with. I never did know her name and she's got a weird necklace tattooed on her neck. It goes all the way around.
- •"Toothpick Guy." He's a regular at my Starbucks and for the entire 15 years I've been seeing him, he has always vigorously chewed on toothpicks. It's kind of weird.
- •"Creepy Jeans and Flip Flops." A teacher at my school, who wears jeans and flip flops because he thinks it's cool. He gives me the creeps, like he "likes" kids. I don't know his name, but I keep my radar up around him.I hate to say his, but I expect to see him on the news some day for some creepy crime.
