I was Mr Nasty in the team ... and the receding hairline giving me a widow's peak was actually not hair loss but where my horns had been surgically removed according to some sixth formers.
I did get my own back by borrowing a latex mask of a demon's head and want into a sixth form tutor time ... and reminded them all that I *know* what they are searching for on the internet and they need to be careful!
I normally get called by my first name which i dont mind tbh. Ive had a few kids call me 'blud' (or 'blood' not sure how to spell it!) which i soon stamped out! I get the cheers mate when i fix something for them but again i dont mind that too much.
Well I get Sir, or Mister or most of the time Techno!! Now that one goes back 5-6 years when the year 11's at the time called me it and everyone else has seemed to pick up on it. It's quite comical, and doesn't bother me so long as they're polite.
It's usually 'Dan Dan the IT man' here. Or just Dan, but a cool nick name would be great.
I was once impressed with "Its the IT Guy - Hes the cool one!" ;)
Had the nickname of 'Richmond' (from IT Crowd fame as if most of you will need telling that) due to a slightly goth look that I used to rock. (still do I guess sometimes).
Actually, thinking on...several years ago, Year 11 boys christened me "Big Gay Karl"...sigh, boys will be boys..bless 'em, they were a year I actually was sad to see leave. I did have one misguided kiddie refer to me as "Forrest Gump" once, due to my disability...I'd taken about 6 steps when I heard a smack and found another kiddie "correcting" them, with "You DON'T EVER do that, they're cool in IT."
Well done that Child.Quote:
