Office Nicknames

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I've just been told I have an office nickname, "Maverick". Surprisingly, this is not because I am short and engage in homoerotic volleyball games. I always walk fast and apparently everytime I walk by this row of hanging posters they all flap around. So the AA's by there call me Maverick.

We also have a "Rocket Scientist" - named because she says she was some sort of Rhodes Scholar in math but, at a very visible presentation,said "it's literally as simple as [writing out 2+2=5] two plus two equals five". No joke intended. There's also "Vegas", our senior attorney, and "Leadbelly", whose last name is "Ledbetter".

Any good ones?

my reports all call me "boss", uniformly, they never call me by my name. for years people who reported to me or worked with me called me "co-zach" as in Casack. I have heard that in my present office "attack (rymes with Zach) is the standard.

Everyone calls me by my last name + er at the end.

E.g., your last name is Kegg --> Kegger.

what if your last name ends in -er?

Then you get a different nickname.

Man, I'd have to have people walking around the office all day calling me Fucker. That's got to be a real downer.

They call me by my name but refer to me as the Texan when not directly talking to me (solely because I am from Texas...I don't have any mannerisms outside of "y'all" and an intense and irrational pride in my home state).

Two came up from an old workplace. (1) T-Bone and (b) Sir Thomas.

Anyway, the T-bone moniker came up during a trip in Wilmington, NC, many years back. I was dating a younger lady semi-exclusively at the time, and also seeing a slightly older lady in another department at work. At the time I was assured by the second one that our business was clandestine and totally confidential, but I later learned that was most certainly not the case. Well, in Wilmington I was picked up by an attractive young lady at a bar on our first night there and we trundled off to other bars. Normally I wouldn't leave my traveling partners but it was an ad-hoc team where some of the members disliked me, and the feeling was mutual, so I had no problem wandering off with Strange NC girl.

A few nights later I arranged for a proper date with NC #1 and things worked out well enough but we'd walked a long way to the restaurant so she called a friend to pick us up. Later on they dropped me off at my hotel, where - as fate would have it - my traveling partners were just finishing a late training run. Kisses were exchanged, I hopped out of the truck, and from that point forward I had become T-Bone.

Have one guy who everyone calls "Dewalt" behind his back, because he's a tool.

And it's the only tool company that office drones recognize.
