I don't. Used to vaguely but that's it for me.
which I looked after for a while
He didn't like it when I told him that's a dog's name.
to a client called Toby. Unlucky, son!
I am very good friends with a Mr Toby Jugg
or not Toby?
Worked with one in my twenties.
Facebook friends with him but haven't seen him this century.
very posh, very rich, had a double barrelled surname. when he was 15 he got appallingly drunk at a house party, took a dump on a bar stool, and sat on it.
he didnt get invited to any parties for a while after that.
I like tobias better though, reminds me of the nevernudes.
Although since you ask, I work with one (1) Funke.
Very pleasant guy indeed
Tobies love it when you do that.
my friend's friend is called Toby and I have spoken to him a couple of times.
you know what to do
Done a work audit. No sign of a Toby. There are 2 instances of a Tobias. Have no information as to whether either shorten it.
no Tobes in the 3,000+ employees.
And a Tobias in my 2000+ organisation.
A bunch of my Facebook friends are friends with Tobies. One of them is friends with TWO Tobies.
Current workplace has 1200 employees, and has been in existence for over 50 years.
FOUR TOBYS (or TOBIES? I dunno) in its whole history.
I think I've found my end of day/week timewasting game.
Give me a name, let's see if I can find just one employee with a certain name...
I know two Tobies. Also I used to have a job where I went round schools in Austria doing art & theatre workshops with kids in English. Something like 20% of all Austrian boys are called Tobias. The others are all called Alex, Lukas or Florian. It got really confusing, especially in mountain towns where there were also only about 3 surnames to go round anyway, and when I went to a different school every week.
It honestly was. Once I was working at a junior school in a little town on the eastern end of the alps. There's a game you play with the little ones that's like musical chairs, but they only change chairs if they match the condition either the teacher or the leftover player shouts out. One of the kids shouted "change places if you have cows" and all the children but two changed seats. I then shouted out "change places if your cousin is in this room" and a good 50% of them switched seats.
(I have the Deliverance soundtrack on vinyl. A fine 50p spent there)
I only know a couple of Austrians, and while they do look the spitting image of each other that's mainly because they're identical twins. Only really struck me in the deepest darkest countryside around here. Maybe Whitehaven, actually.
Isle of Grain is pretty much Deliverance country too.
Everywhere in Austria outside Vienna, Graz, Salzburg, Linz and some of the places on the Swiss/Liechtenstein border pretty much is deepest darkest countryside. They've only got 6 mi people, and most of the country is mountain.
Oh and Innsbruck. Sorry Innsbruck, I do like you.
I know THIS Toby.
Lived with him in third year when he was finishing his doctorate in chemical engineering. Frighteningly intelligent, good looking and popular guy. Only realised years after I moved out how much contempt he held me in. Had a really disarming move on new people where he put his hand softly on their back near their shoulder. I try and copy it with limited success.
I only bunged them on at 2/5 to make it up to five games. Pricks. At least they lost and didn't just draw.
because other children would call me Toby jug.
like Ollie. realistically, no-one knows anyone called Ollie, and if they do, guaranteed to be a nobhead.
My Toby is a really nice guy.
Fuck ollie though.
1x boyfriend of a good friend
Imagine having a cousin called Toby. Eeeg.
he was an absent-minded medical student
so presumably now he's an absent-minded doctor
Am a bit of knob tbh.
