Everyone in this world starts off with a birth name after they are born. Usually down the road everyone picks up a nickname of some sort. It may be some adoring term, or it may be because of how you look, or something peculiar that you did or do. There are nice nicknames that everyone likes, and then there are some not so nice nicknames.
The idea for this hub came to me after I watched the new reality television show "Here comes Honey Boo Boo". Just about everyone on that show has a nickname of one kind or another. There's of coarse Honey Boo Boo, and then there's her three older sisters, Pumpkin, Chickadee, and Chubbs or Chubbette. Lastly lets not forget Sugar Bear and Mama.
Where I work is no different than most other places, and there are a wide variety of coworkers there. After all it takes all kinds of people to make to make the world go around. Just about everyone has a nickname of one kind or another where I work. Here's just a few examples of folks That I work with who have crazy nicknames, and how some of them got their name. There's Dinky who carried his name from childhood. We all call him Dink for short. Dinky was in high spirits recently after a supervisor informed him that the company had approved his thing. We all congratulated him on his thing, even though no one was quite sure what the thing was. There's Boo-Boo who picked up her name because she's always dropping stuff from off her forklift, and then says that she made a boo boo.
There's a Lips, because he can never keep a secret. There's a Big head, and a Hog head who's two names are very self explanatory. There's Rock Star who's a darn good guitar player early in the evening, before he has too much to drink. There's a Dude love who got his name from the television show Saturday Night live. There's a Water Bottle, because he never goes anywhere without a bottle of water in his hand. He constantly drinks water religiously, and he probably consumes more water then anyone else on this planet. But believe it or not, his own doctor has informed him that he needs to start drinking more water. Even Water Bottle himself can't figure that crazy one out. We also call him Bottle, and Bot for short. There's a Tool bag, because he's always sporting a tool bag on his belt where ever he travels. Obviously he just likes being seen with tools, because he doesn't even know which end of a hammer to hold.
There are those with animal nick names as well. There's a bird, and he picked up that name because he likes to whistle. There's a rabbit, and actually he didn't pick up his nickname because he's fast, but rather because he eats like a rabbit. There's a Stinky, and I'm sure you can imagine how he picked up his name. A matter of fact I'm sure most work places have somebody with a nickname along those lines. There's an electrician who earned the name Sparky, because every time he works on an electrical panel sparks go flying. There's also a Beetle Juice, Little Dickie, Neighbor, Bull, and Wild Bill to name just a few of the other coworkers who I work with.
There's plenty more crazy nicknames where these came from as well, but some of them I can't put in print here on the hub pages. If you have some crazy nicknames don't be shy, and share them with us all in the comment section below.
