There was a kid in middle school who everyone called Juice…because one time he spilled juice on himself…
I know, pretty dumb, right?
Folks took to Twitter to share the dumb nicknames people had at their schools.
Let’s take a look.
1. The Bills.
Could be worse, I guess…
A kid came to our school. Said his name was Stephen. Someone said “we already have Stephens. We’re gonna call you Bill.”
It stuck so much that his three younger sibling were called Little Bill, Tiny Bill, and Lady Bill their entire tenures at school

2. Who are you, again?
Oh, the new kid…
We called one guy “new kid” all four years of high school because he joined our class two months later than the rest of us.

3. Cool nickname.
Sounds like a gangster.
Called a rando “Fingers” for four years cause on the first day of college he had the audacity to raise his hand to ask a q with two fingers instead of an open hand

4. It will never end.
Some things just stick.
I had a buddy who got the nickname “Titty” in 8th grade because he was changing after baseball practice and a meathead noticed he had a birthmark on his nipple. We still call him that. We’re in our mid 30s and he has two children. It doesn’t end.

5. Hot wheels!
And then there’s Stripes.
Had a guy in a couple of my classes in college who used a wheely backpack so we called him wheels. We called his friend who he sat next to stripes because he wore a striped sweater one time

6. It works!
She never lived it down.
Omg, we had a girl who used a briefcase instead of a backpack and she was Briefcase Girl.

7. The Dude.
Just go with it!
First day of freshman year, my friend called a random kid “Dude”. He foolishly replied, “My name’s not Dude.” Guess what his name was every day for four years.

8. Just like the guy in Porky’s.
Which is a cinematic masterpiece.
Ha. Reminds me of our friend Meat. Guy had terrible handwriting and he left a note and the last two words on their own line were “me at” and it read like he signed it “meat”.

9. Hey, Pants!
I knew a cat named Pants, true story!
Just remembered this guy I went to high school with named Pants. He was called Pants because at his first soccer practice freshman year I guess it was really hot out but he wore pants. So everyone called him that for four years. No clue what his real name even was. Teenagers man

10. The guy loved bagels.
Can you blame him?
One of my brothers was called “Bagel” because… He used to bring a bagel to eat after cross country practice.
I should probably add that we were in one of the few cities in LA County that did not have a lot of Jews.
