So won't the real Slim Shady please stand up?

One of my friends has a name that doesn't fit his physical appearance at all. One time he was paying for something with a credit card and the cashier said, "I need your card, sir." He said, "That is my card." The guy ran it, but was still skeptical.

The other day my friend told me that he stopped at a Starbucks, and was chatting up the barista when she looked past him and called his name out.

He said, "That's me."

She said, "Oh. You're [Name]? That's awesome!"

He told me, "I just nodded, but I was thinking, 'if you think that's awesome you should see my cock.'"

I'm sure she would've just melted upon hearing that.

no hints as to the real name??

I had a friend in high school who's name was... John Smith. He signed in once to the Library (w/o his student ID) and was thrown out for being a "trouble maker."

So, does your friend think it's odd that people can't associate him with his name?

I have a different, but similar problem. I have a common name, and I feel it suits me fine. It's just spelled different than normal. Although, I still feel that any English speaking person could and should be able to pronounce it correctly, I am constantly surprised by how many people say something goofy when reading my name allowed.

I went to school with a guy named Michael Hunt. I am not kidding.

Native Minnow said...

His name is Poonjab, and he's white.

Just kidding.

I knew a guy named Michael Hunt too. He'd get mad if you called him Mike.

I'm guessing his name was either "Peter Gonzenia", or "Hugh Jasse".

I put "Doctor" on my first AMEX card when I was about 18. This was prior to "Doogie Howser".
