When I was in my teens my nickname was Flash thanks to an innocent wardrobe malfunction.
Before we started dating my (ex)hubby gave me the nickname Hollywood cuz he didn't know my real name. All he knew was that I had long hair, drove a sporty black Trans Am and always wore sunglasses. It wasn't a very creative nickname but at least he didn't call me Trans Am.
Now my only nickname is...Ma'am. (But if the lighting is just right I can manage an occasional Miss.)
I have several, but two are used most often. I rarely hear my given name. The first is Misery (cuz I'm into dark things, not really goth, absolutely not emo) and that started in high school. The second is Roo, and that started in middle school. I love Misery and plan to get it tattooed on the back of my neck.
I know a guy , who I used to hang with , who would alays refer to me as Ms. Diane >>>long story, I never did anything, but I reminded him of his ex lover I guess..so I hated being called that
Most people call me She-Bandit because of my collection of firebirds , 2nd generation and the large pheonix tat I have on my back..I don't know who started it, but it stuck, I am ok with it being called that ..and unfortunatly, I get called "gimp" by a few people - this I totally dislike because I can not help that the problem now exists. Im high school I got called Kelly Bundy cause I dressed like her and drove a camaro?, that one got forgot about and at one time someone called me "Kirby", like the vaccume for 2 yrs..thank goodness that one went away too... I really just like being called by my real name the best, Kerry
Got called "Cowboy" in the Army (cuz I wuz wun) and "Ghost" in the oilpatch (hence the user name). When I was growing up, my old man used to call me "Bonehead", but I'm thinking that was maybe more of a description than a nickname...
All through high school people always just called my Psycho or Little Bug...Psycho has still stuck with some people, such as my good friend Evil. My sister twisted Little Bug into Little Booger, while a co-worker turned it into just plain Bug. The only nickname that is habitually used now is my husband's name for me, which is She Who Must Be Obeyed.
i had one friend make up a funny nickname i'll never forget. pineapple. because, i naturally have a darker blonde hair color, but i guess i "act" really blonde (or at least did as a teenager?!) and so, brown on the outside, yellow on the inside. funny?
and i actually had a teacher AND a boss from work call me princess habitually...maybe in a past life.... ;P
At that point I'd had some mental-type issues for which I'd gone to therapy, before that I was "Genius" and after that (I was very open about it to classmates) a couple people called me the psychotic genius for about a week, then everyone unanimously shortened it to Psycho, a name I wear to this day in the right company .
nice. i like to think of myself as a sort-of psychotic genius. haha but i think most people just consider me strange, awkward or kinda crazy. lol luckily i never had to go back to school with the kids after i had my mental issues.
Later I was called 'Uncle Festus'(from the Munsters) when I'd put on a little weight and had very short hair, and currently the only nickname I sport is 'Daddy' which MK calls me (and I'm proud to call him 'Son').
Ok. There are several. My mom called me Tricia or Trish. My late hubby decided to call me Patsy. In my senior year in high school, I was dubbed with the name joe plug. Don't ask
The most recent one was crash. Even though I've been driving for decades, I am the world's worst backer-upper. Got hit by a car when I pulled out onto the road, then, after we got off to the side of the road, and I was done talking with the police, I backed up, right into the car of the hubby of the woman who hit me. He had pulled up right behind me, it was dark, I was upset, and didn't see his car. A two-fer in one night, both with the same family. I can laugh about it now. Other incidents included backing up into the cement bird bath in my own yard, and a few times into cars in parking lots. I avoid backing up at all costs today
LOL...someone called me the latter before, and I asked them if they were looking through the wrong end of the binoculars.
Hehehe...I think the psychotic genius label takes a very small school. My school had 156 people, 32 of whom were in my grade, and they bestowed the name on me as a sort of badge of honor . I guess it helps that they knew me long before I went to the institution, so when I got back they welcomed me back into my social circles with open arms and a whole new theory on who I am .
