Years ago I worked with a couple of big guys that had perspiration problems. They were the type that would sweat bullets just standing still at normal room tempeture. The first guys last name was Miksal but everyone called him Sweatsal. He transfered and about a year later the other guy came on board. Beause we already had a guy name John, to identify which one you were refering to, the new guy became Sweat John.
I knew two guys in high school who tried to give themselves nicknames, but with crappy results.
The first guy wanted us to call him "Kentucky Dave" or just "Kentucky". He had just moved into our Upstate New York school district from Kentucky, while claiming that this was his nick in his former state... which I thought was really weird. Who in a state is nicknamed after his state until he goes out of state?
His cousin tipped us that actually, he only lived in Kentucky for two years between ages 14 and 16, and that he was born and mainly raised in Utica, New York. [...]
You were called chewbacca?!? I was Called chewbacca too! usually "Chewy"Back in the day they called me squish, also chewbacca. At my job they call me cock diesel, or just diesel. The assistant manager of the store started that and it caught on. I have no idea why he thought of it.
My first name is Michael and for the last 30 years or so I have pretty much been called Mikey by everyone who knows me.
Thanks to this little punk..
Growing up on our street we had a few mike's and I was always called Big Mike because I was older..
