Please be honest. This may be the only census we have.
(I'm not concerned with variations in spelling.)

My name is the most popular baby name for the last 12 years. And yet, it is not represented on your so-called "census." Tsk tsk.

That, and my Mom was apparently 19 years ahead of her time. This means in about 10 years I'll be overrun with teenagers with my name that just WONT GET OFF MY DAMN LAWN.

Okay, you got me. I'm testing a theory, based on a conversation with Chunkstyle this morning.

[Edit] Fixed.

Well, I'm still the only one. Ever. I am a unique snowflake, an embodiment of creation so perfect that I could only be made once.

Seems I can't vote for some reason, so I'll just post my response: I'm Jacob.

Chunk is the only one I actually call Dan, so I just assume everyone else on the board is Dan...or occasionally Mike. (That's essentially what this was about.) I guess it's not a flawless theory.

And the poll is broked (olol). They just don't make 'em like they used to. The internet is over. Poop out.

^^^This.

Me: "I'd like a third pound original burger, well done, and a drink please."
Cashier: "Okay, and your name?"
Me: "Michael."
Cashier: "Okay, Mike!"

Barber: "Phone number please."
Me: "[Phone number]."
Barber: "Let's see...(type type) ...Mike?"
Me: "Michael."
Barber: "Okay, step right this way, Mike."

My friend: "Oh, and I'd like you to meet Michael. Michael, this is Howard."
Howard: "Hey, Mike, nice to meet you!"

Every time. Serious.

I soooo prefer Mike over Michael... Any time I here my full name used, I assume I'm in trouble. :shifty:

Also, there are like 5 Mikes/Michaels at work, so they call me Cheddar, so I can be unique.

Post Re: Why I Call You By Your Handle IRL - POLL!
I have a work friend named Nathan. We all call him Nate. He said that if anybody calls him Nathan, that means they haven't taken the time to get to know him. I feel the same way. Guests will want to thank me by name, look at my tag and say "Thank you Michael." Yeah, its the name thats on my birth certificate, but its not the name I'm known by, so I almost find it less meaningful than just a simple thank you.

Also, my last name is a first name. There have been many times people have addressed me as Gregory or Greg, including a f**king neurologist. Half the time I don't bother even correcting them, since I've become so accustomed to responding to that name.

But yeah, Cheddar. Less confusing.
