A New Nickname Is Born

When you work with a bunch of guys in the field you have to be careful what you say. They love to take something and run with it.

I was on day shift in St Louis and was telling the other two techs about my flight and getting a face full of stewardess hip. Then one of the other techs told how he sat in the aisle seat and had a male passenger straddle his shoulder as they loaded the plane. In his deep Tennessee draw he told in great detail how the guy "parked his junk on my shoulder in my face". He said he poked him in his gut and told him to git his ____sack off him. He got all spun up and his voice cracked a bit as he said he thinks the guy knew what he was doing. We couldn't help laughing as he told his story in his most serious face.

The other tech instantly dubbed him "Sacks". He'll answer to it, but it aint nicely.

I was fortunate I think, In the field I got stuck with "J Lo"

Any of y'all got nicknames?

I used to be called "Grace". There isn't a hole around I haven't fallen into.

I have a whole bunch of nicknames, but I think most of them are too "R" rated for your blog. Oh... "Dirt Dog" and "Dirty Dog" are two popular ones... J-Lo is a compliment, I think... you go girl.

Val said...

Lol @ Sacks. Hahaha

My nickname since I was small has been "Bones".

J-Lo? Hmm...

As a kid, my older cousins called me Sherman Tank. Might of had something to do with my destructive behavior.

My ex husband had many nicknames that I can not mention here.

Other than the obvious, Jewels, the most unique would be "Newman"
because I am the mail lady... but my waist's a bit smaller than his.

Oh, and I have a bizzare obcession with useless information, so for a while Cliff Claven (the mail man from Cheers) stuck.

In my 20's, the brothers nicknamed me 'b!tch'. A title I wore proudly. : )

OMFG .

Should probably read people's profiles before commenting on their blogs huh?

If anyone ever called me J-Lo, I'd run. Just saying.

I'm gonna go hide now.

Simply Suthern said...

LMAO, I feel violated and think I need to scrub down with clorox.

Not So Simply Single said...

OH. MY. GOD.

Do I have the nicknames... However, most would make you blush for sure...

Let's see, which ones are clean?

Curly Turkey when I was a kid.

Boozella when I was drinking...

Hot LIPS...(you can figure that one out, and its not the lips you think...heh heh heh... )

Those are the only clean ones I can mention...
