I also taught a girl called Ebonie. She was blonde-haired and blue-eyed.
is just a spanish boys name
(met a few in spain)
used to be my boss back when I worked in a factory in Pyle
My finest moment was creeping up on him deep in the warehouse where it was so quiet that your ears felt blocked up from the absence of sound. When I was close enough, with him distracted by counting stock in a particular box, I smacked the wooden head of a broom against the metal of a shovel I had in my hands a foot or so from his head. He almost pooped himself and had to sit down for quarter of an hour while I laughed so hard I felt like I'd been doing sit ups.
In my defence, he had not long before convinced me that I'd lost some important stock (which he'd hidden) and convinced me that it was gonna be taken out of my wages. Spent an hour turning everything upside down looking for that shit before he creased up. We both got into trouble for that one, as the stock was genuinely urgently needed.
Also one day went to play him some of my music I'd been recording at home and accidentally put the wrong side of the tape on so My Name Is Prince started playing. He was insanely impressed until I stopped the tape saying it wasn't me. When I then played him this: https://soundcloud.com/ma0sm/clinic the look on his face was one of pure disappointment. What a let down.
He got the job in the first place after working as a waiter in Antigua in a restaurant where the owner of the company happened to be screaming drunk. In his drunken stupor, he'd promised Nestle that if he ever came to the UK he'd have a job for him. A few months later, Nestle turned up on the doorstep and the owner was so impressed he gave him a job in stores. The guy had a family back in Antigua, but was fascinated at how easy it was to go out on Friday and Saturday nights in Bridgend and find a woman interested in a night of anonymous fucking.
I do sometimes wonder what that guy is doing these days.
post some of the names of people I see at work on the internet. Had some absolute gems.
The deconstructive Marxist?
Best not, thanks.
is correct. Who's = who is.
you just always use whose as the possessive, even if it is technically a whom.
Obla Denise Oblada
(all true 'cept Johnnn)
i knew of a sydney harbour-bridge that used to work at the council in bristol
We were really excited to see what kind of toned and enigmatic warrior figure would appear.
Turned out to be a skinny little drip in a baseball cap with fuck all to say for himself.
To be fair it's probably a hard name to live up to.
called Atilla Hun.
Loads of people are going to come across this thread when googling their name. In fact people with odd names will probably come across several "list weird names" threads.
but in the end faced too much opposition.
and suddenly everyone thinks you're a racialister
Not sure where it's from, but all the names are great. The third one in particular is incredible - mainly for the explanation in brackets.
No doubt there are some people who try too hard with naming their kids these days, and I especially find using commercial trade names distasteful..
.. but this smacks of blatant class demonisation and backing of Ian Duncan Smith's moronic welfare policies which even some Monday Club Tories would consider cruel.
It's all just so... strange.
When they are just words. Normal ones like Peace or Faith, but some are called things like Friendly or Justice or Wonderful. I think it is nice, no different to British people using some foreign word which translates as "Wonderful" and thinking they are all sophisticated.
and knew someone called Ambulance. Apparently the parents just liked the sound of the word.
Names like Nepotism, Welshman and Psychology are perfectly acceptable because they show their parents knew obscure English words.
That was pretty good I thought
They're vulnerable people
I misheard it as Sandra and was a bit confused as he's a bloke.
(Not even joking).
I used to trawl the system looking for unusual names as it was the nearest thing to entertainment.
A few old favourites:
Fuk Yu Ho
I kind of assumed some dum-dum had taken their name down wrong and that he was Wratchett (or some such)
He wasn't, he was a Mr. Ratshit.
