    Re: Bet you Senior School Techies don't get this!

    They bought us all radios but as mine was the only one that was ever on that has knida fallen into disuse...

    I'm in secondary and they still shout 'It's the computerman!' or 'Hi Giles!'. I don't understand the problem with being known by your first name. Some teachers will only call me 'Sir' or 'Mr Wendes' and some are confused and have decided upon 'Mr Giles'

    Some on the more confident year 7 groups will ask questions like a 3 year old but generally I'm safe if I hide in my office

    Wow, I thought it was just me. They call me...Mr Ben.

    Year 7 straight through to 6th form. Don't really know how it started....I was introduced as Mr Stanton. Even the rest of the staff refer to me as Mr Ben now

    Do you mind though? I kinda like it and of course it starts most groups off on a Buffy discussion! I don't even like being called Mr Wendes by my IFA or bank - plain Giles is fine thank you.

    Nope, i'm fine with it. I've been a Mr Stanton for years (except at the indian round the corner, they have been calling me Mr Ben for ages)

    It doesn't bother me in the slightest. Luckily, none of the girls at my school actually know who 'Mr Ben' actually is as they are too young - luckily. But I still get it from the teachers

    For ten years Mr Patel at our local newsagent called me Joe. My parents and friends would correct him everytime but he could either not hear the difference or thought it was a nickname of some sorts...

    I just answered to Joe - it was easier...

    It is indeed the thundercats logo - thunder, thunder, thunder cats.....hoooooo!

    Sword of omens give me sight beyond sight and all that!

    Cheetara....erm....she was foxy I guess (but got nothing on Melissa from the racoons!)

    Don't get me started on cartoons of my era....

    Hehe..everytime I get the Sword of Omens in World of Warcraft , I say that little sword of omens bit

    80s cartoons rocked, far superior to anything today
