Has anyone ever given you a nickname you didn't like? What did you do to change it?


My friends always called me Jewels, and I didn't mind the nickname. But, during my teenage years, a past boyfriend's parents used to call me JewelBalls. I really didn't like the name and the more I said I didn't like it, the more they used it. Has anyone ever given you a nickname you didn't like, how old were you, and what was the outcome?
