JUST because it pisses them off.
is this funny or not?
calling everyone by a pre-determined number of the letters at the beginning of their name regardless of pronounciation to mock other peoples use of this practice is also to be recommended in a group/community environment.
I still like how Faith calls Buffy 'B'.
We skipped the first two EMO episodes.
does have some amusing moments though. Comedy zombies attack! I love season 3. I watched The Zeppo at the weekend. :)
"Hey, they're not baking a cake!"
a typical "Let's beat on Buffy" episode. There's generally at least one every season and often (as in this case) they're fairly ludicrous. Dunno. It's rubbish, really.
being called "d". i have no idea why. i sign emails with just a D sometimes.
better that than "dan", anyway.
I like that.
D-Dogg would sound shit, though. How about G-Dogg?
is the blocking system on here fucked or what?
rather than the other way around.
no, wait, that was how i dumped someone once.
never mind, move along!
i wasn't always the smooth operator i am now.
THAT YOU MAKE IT SAFE BACK TO YOUR OWN WORLD!
Everyone should be called by their surnames.
so i agree.
and before that it was skeeps. I don't mind really. SM might not be so good.
and i couldn't decide whether to call you Chris or Christopher.
but you still avoid meeting me at all costs? you're a pervert.
where as in real life, you're RUBBISH*.
So is it Chris or Christopher? In my dream you were in a band that was in a lift. A lift band. I couldn't find the toilets either.
People aren't allowed to call me Chris until they know me, basically.
its not very well defined. Christopher is my public name???
My whole family calls me 'Lu'
My friends call me 'Lucy'
Lucy is best.
Call me L.
The blondey ginger one!
That's a compliment
he always says that.
p.s. I'm not ginger.
but i watched Hippies last night with him in, then saw you post something, and his face came to mind.
The actor, not Indie_Andy
I wanted people to call me Rich
Now I HATE it.
Please call me Richard.
that's Sarah Marx to you!
people almost always call me 'Tobe' when an amount of familiarity has been established. i quite like it actually - its very chummy.
i also get 'Tobes', 'Tobule' and 'Tobby' from various other people, none of which are actually shorter to say than my name so are not relevant to this thread. yeah! I'm a rebel without a cause! A maverick poster who plays by his own rules!
see Sarah to 'Sares' = hate it hate it hate it
she likes 'Shibs' - is that a no-no for you too?
shob-horn (sorry alcxxk) are all big no no's
ill shuv your horn...
she also like Shibby, Shibbibbles and all silly variants of Shibs.
So its just plain Siobhan for you is it?
or swords if you must
just gets called Shiv by everyone.
How about that?
"The J. man"
same thing with longer version even if it's not their name.
like people calling me jonathon. although, me finding it funny, probably spoils the bit about it pissing the person off...
like paul ince wanting to be called The Governor whereas in actual fact he was always called... *abandon reply*
saying you whole name and overpronouncing "Alcxxk", sometimes making the it sound like "all-chck".
Q. Does this make me a bad person?
you can call me anything
with someone who insisted on calling me 'TJ' because (says he) "it'll be easier".
I quite enjoyed it actually.
nicknames are awful, really.
when people have really long annoying names, i never know whether to go Y'KNOW, the whole hog or just give them a nickname i assume they like.
like, i just avoided saying your name EVER because i didn't know whether it was 'chris' or 'christopher' or one of a million other possibilities.
my name is fairly hard to abbreviate/make into a nickname.
Two people in the entire world I think call me Fi, which is ok. Fifi is not.
Yes, aren't nicknames silly?
to add o or head to the end of someone's name? i thought that was how it worked!
"STORY, ANTO?" said in a really think north dublin accent = best greeting ever.
not strictly true
I have one old school friend and she calls me Kay constantely. I hate Kay. If you are going to shorten my name, call me Leia. Please.
Anyways, not only does she call me Kay, she has told her fianncee and anyone else she introduces me to to talk me Kay.
I'm going to strangle her.
Vik quite a bit. One of my friends has recently decided to call me Vikkers, which sounds horrifically public school. I think he means it affectionately though.
