So so so tempted.
i was very jealous when i met him first.
should be fun
now I'm going to spend the rest of my life knowing I'm a bottle of rum and a debit card away from being legally known as Maximilian Velocoraptor. I don't need that hanging over me.
but with HATEY SMASHTEETH.
Change your name, Zapsta. Please!
tell everyone you've changed your name. So ring up your bank and GP and tell your employer, then everyone else who you know/sends you letters and stuff, and it's changed. You'd have to do all that anyway.
Like you would have to do anyway, as I said.
but could you change your passport name without changing it by deed poll?
The point about Deed Poll is it gives you a legal piece of paper to say this is my name. I don't think you'd get your passport changed just by telling them it was your new name.
tbh, anything I said beyond my original post was me winging it. In fact, most of the stuff I said after my first sentence was me winging it. I just heard about the "tell important people/places you've changed your name (employer/bank/etc.)" bit and kinda fleshed out the rest. PRETTY CONVINCING.
After all, even if your name is Herbert Wanker-Pissflaps, you can tell anyone you like your name is something else and it'll only be the customs people and the bank tellers who will still get to snigger at you.
it really is a bargain at £33/23
Robo Destructo springs to mind.
to stopme changing other people's names
she'll be receiving the documentation shortly!
lock computer before going for lunch
and would have a .gov address if it was real?
deed polls aren't a government service. they're just a legal document, basically a contract with yourself. so you can pay anyone with the right legal knowledge to draw one up for you.
Me - Prawn McCrab-brow
Him - Spide-Rimmer 1000
that way some diser might come home pissed and think "that's a good idea"
I've long been tempted to follow suit but I'm just too lazy
