    Just wondered if any of you lot give nicknames to people at work or the mates you socialise with? I'm a complete c**t for it! Just about everyone I know or work with I have given them a nickname, from Doughboy to Lobes and a fair few in between I can't help myself! Christ even my own kids aren't above it!!!
    Maybe I've got an over active imagination or maybe I'm just a c**t!!!

    I do it with the neighbours.

    There's a lad across the road called Chris who is always angry, so I call him Chris Cross. Then there is a fat bloke next to him with a half shaved head who I call Mr. Mohawk and his family I call the Adams Family.

    Then next door to him is a fella called Tyrone. I call him Toblerone.

    Then there's Breathy at number 12, the Shouty family at number 10, the Christians at number 9 and Baldy Man at number 6 and Mr and Mrs Nicey at number 1.

    Death Row lives in the flats. He just looks like he belongs there (that's death row, not the flats).

    Next door to us is Hazel. I call her Hazel.

    Is it bad
    But I haven't a clue what my neighbours are called, and I don't want to, they just piss me off with their ' ways ' and I know i'll always not like any of them so I wouldn't even bother getting to know them

    I wish.

    She wears long pleated skirts, has a serious hair cut and is incredibly reserved.

    Even her pants on her washing line are just plain white boring granny knickers.


    I'll just stick with Hazel I think.

    I had a nickname for the Chinese student who lived above me for a year and clomped around when he wasn't listening to music at ear-damaging levels, but I can't post it until after 9pm.

    Sidenote: I'm a little bit racist now purely because of him.

    When I was young my dad had a nickname for the bloke next door, we had a large hedge dividing the houses and his face would occasionally appear, rising over it like the moon when he was cutting it. He was known as moonface, a few years later when my dad had died and he tried it on with our mum his nickname changed to "cuntybollocks".

    Never. Always address people by their full names unless they use a nickname themselves.

    PS. We had a neighbour when I was little that my mother called "Skinny Lizzie". I have no idea what her real name was.

    Amazing coincidence, we have exactly the same people living in our street. But you missed out that odd bloke the whole street calls 'Wanky Panky'.

    Wanky Panky is not me.

    With such an 'observant' knowledge of the neighbours coming and going, my nickname is The Blind Twitcher.

    My wife's genial, pet nickname is You Vindictive, Twisted, Utterly Contemptible Bitch.

    When I'm not happy and in a mood with her it is obviously something a bit worse than that .:)

    I work with a bloke who subscribes to the "Hang em, flog em" ethos. Another recent pearler being: "I suppose you're another one who doesn't believe in bringing back national service".
    To avoid confusion (As I work with a few 'Steve's') He is known as 'Victorian Steve'.
    I used to occasionally join my Dad and Uncle for a pint at the Stoke Green club. There used to be an old dear in there who seemed to permanently have a fag jammed in her mouth. I nicknamed her 'The beagle'.
