So, I explained the origin of my name "leprrkan" in an earlier thread and lawlis42 asked me about a thread for nicknames given TO us, instead of chosen BY us, suggesting it might make for some fun stories. I agree, so here it is.

I got the nickname "socket" from the denizens of my neighborhood pub, and it goes like this:
My mom is a CNA, she hangs out at the same bar and she tends to be a little..."difficult"... at times, so she got the name "Nurse Ratchet", anyone familiar with "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" will get this (if you're not, read a book, Chris isn't the only writer in the world you know Very Happy , but tell him I said that Embarassed ). Well, being clever, literary drinkers, they mistook the nickname as referring to the mechanics tool. Since I was her offspring, I became "socket".
As for "mumbles": I was a bartender at the above mentioned establishment for a time. My boss was a great guy, but a little hard of hearing and I'm generally a fairly soft-spoken person, so when I would leave him messages, he would call up and rant about how I mumble on his machine and he can't hear me. So, he took to calling me mumbles, like the old Dick Tracy gangster.

BTW- lawlis, the 42 is bra size right? Wink

Sorry I'm late! I was stuck in the hot springs of beautiful Ouray, CO.
Awesome! Glad you took the lead on this, leprrkan! I've had a couple of nicknames that have stuck with me. My father calls me Puddinfoot because I have sweet feet (collective 'Awe...').
In high school I was nicknamed Flawless Lawless or later Fifi Flawless because my last name is Lawlis and I'm a little perfectionistic.
And at just barely 5'3" if my bra size were a 42 I would be beyond obese.
