Being named Richard myself I go by Rich. There are those who know this and continue to call me Rick. I do not understand.

I played in a band where we had 3 Richards and a bass player of a different name. We would jokingly call ourselves "Three Dicks and a Toby".

Yeah, that's pretty bad. But at least they call you by an actual name.

My wife gets emails from a company she has bought from in the past, addressed to "Dear Null."

Sheesh.

Hammond101, there were 3 Ricks among the bunch of guys I hung out with years ago. Eventually, we were all called by our last names.

Joe Potts, I've definitely been called worse things than Josh. Null is pretty weird.

There where 5 or six of us in elementary school together. Last names where the ok with me. I had a 5th grade teacher who kept trying to change our names. Ricky, Richard, Dick, Richie, she just didn't understand that our name was our name and please use it of the last name to address us.

My wife says it's usually safe to assume that any woman whose name is Donna, Cathy, Linda, or Debbie is a Boomer. Rick might be that way too. There were a lot of us then. I don't know any young ones.

Any dude born from the late 80s' to the late 90s, if I cannot remember their name, I'll call them Jeremy.

And I'm usually right :o)

My Dad had three friends named Al. The one that was 6'5" was "Big Al", the one that was 5' 6" was "Little Al", and of course, the one in the middle, was "Medium Al".

CO2 ... is there anything it can't do?

Yeah well -- I have alternative names for Bass Pro.

They may be a different company for you guys in free states -- but out here in Commieland, they suck as much as Dick's and Walmart.

I buy guns, ammo, and fishing gear from local shops. Other outdoor stuff -- I get from Amazon.

Amazon sucks as well, but at least they don't pretend to be on our side.

There's a guy at a donut shop I used to go to that thought my name was Jarmaine.

Not even close.

I stopped going, the dude creeped me out.

It's okay, Jarmaine :0)


There used to be a woman that lived around the corner from me who called me Mario whenever she saw me. I'd correct her, and next time, I was Mario again. I finally asked her why she insisted on the name, and she replied, "you LOOK like a Mario."

I do not look like a Mario. I don't even look like a Geno. I look more like a Helmut or a Gernst.

Years ago I used to pickup the company mail from the post office every morning. It became a routine of familiar faces and pleasantries. There was a lady I'd make small talk with and somehow she got it in her head my name was Brian. I never corrected her and this went on for years.

My first name is spelled J E F F R Y...
no second "E"..
Would you like to guess the most common name I get from trash mail sent to me ?

Even face to face in a business transaction I am often referred to as Jerry.

I do not look like, nor act like, a Jerry.

My name was way too popular, it’s almost like having an alias. If I’m in a crowded place and someone yells “Michael” I don’t even turn around.

Apparently the name is headed for extinction. It was at the top of the charts for 30 years. It was my great grandfathers name. He was from Ireland in the 1800s but hung out in Scotland for a few years before shipping over, so he could pass as a Scotsman, the Irish were haveing trouble getting jobs here, at the time. He made his way to Pittsburgh and worked as an engineer in the steel industry designing alloys for specific properties.

Protest! I didn't see Dorcas anywhere on that list.

I'd like to file a Hurt Feelings Report. My snowflake proclivities require it.
