So coming to a bit or a milestone in my life (as pathetic as that sounds), I'm getting my braces off in a few weeks.
I left it quite late in life to get them, I'm 34 btw.
My parents couldn't afford them when I was a kid.
The reason I ALWAYS wanted them was because, in school, all them years ago, people used to call me "Gopher Boy" as my two front teeth stuck right out (Just like Kevin from South Park)
I'll never forget the sting of that name.... Gopher Boy
Looking back in it, I laugh but only because my teeth are straight now.
Kids can be cruel little fu*kers.
What horrible names were you called when you were a kid?
Bugs Bunny because I had prominent teeth. My teeth are nice and straight now
I was also called Frankenstein because I have a high forehead
"Retard" is the one that stands out really.
Brit, despite living in Ireland with Irish parents since I was 1 year old.
Taz....after the tasmanian devil in looney tunes
Because I can't talk clear
I went to school in South Africa, so some of the things I was called don't quite translate. Because I was an immigrant there, I got called "soutpiel", lit. "salt dick", because I had one foot in Africa and one foot in Europe, so my junk was dangling in the Atlantic Ocean ...
That's a very well thought out insult, if it wasn't so cruel, I'd be impressed.
Man, thats a long list. Well for starters, our school uniform was a green blazer and trousers, and I'm a big guy and always have been (broad and tall at that time incidentally) so my name in school from the age of 12 till we moved at age 16 was the Green Giant. Being also fat, speccy, 'nerdy' (hate that word) and incredibly shy and awkward, I got
Fat as a ****ing elephant
Fatty fatty boom boom
Thats off the top of my head. Imagine that every day for 4 years
Anyone remember "On The Buses" ?
I got Olive a lot
Used a laptop since second year and got mocked a lot with it. Being called a "retard" and comments being made "I wonder how really stupid he must be to really be using a laptop".
Got called "laptop" a lot. Backfired on one fella one day mocking me for why I didn't bring it in one day, this chap was quite overweight, and I replied he ate it . Never have I made a classroom laugh so hard .
They called you tubby twice. That's just cruel.
