    A tangent on another thread inspired this. I could use a pick-me-up. The funnier the better!

    I have a customer named Harry Weiner. No joke. I pronounced his name wrong while giggling the first time I met him. Needless to say he doesn't do much business with me. His name is pronounced w-y-n-e-r. Can you imagine going through school like that! :bawl:

    I had a sales appointment with a person named "Lacey." I was expecting a woman that turned out to be a 300 lb white guy. I had a similar experience- I had a meeting with "June" and up walks a guy and says "Hi, I'm June." It took me a second to let my mind wrap around that.

    Zeb Nutting.

    Not because of his last name. I just though Zeb Nutting was the ultimate hick/hillbilly name ever.

    Harold Peters. Never, never call him Harry.

    I once had a brief business dealing with a guy named Doug Dick. I kept accidentally calling him Dick. I bet he gets that alot.

    Weird timing, a coworker and I were just talking about this because we have a new employee named "Patty Cake". Poor girl...

  10. Richard Head. I'm not lying. I also know a Mike Hunt and a Dick Hunt. The last one not as funny as the first two.

    One of the history teachers at my old high school is named Mike Hunt. Another history teacher, also the basketball coach, is named Walter Hardy. It's fun to call him Wally.

    Oh, I know now. Local dude was running for office down where I was in FL a few years ago.

    Phil Yacuchi (pronounced yeah-"slang for female parts"). If that wasn't bad enough, his wife was named Sharon, and his son was named Patrick.

    I am not kidding. It was frightening.

    Look in a St. Louis phone book and you will find Bilbo Baggins.

    Otherwise, there's a rural policeman in my parts named Shorty Cox.
     
  14. Ah you stole my one. My old physics teacher was called Richard Head, poor bloke, teenagers can be so cruel.
