Anyone have any inappropriate nick names for loved ones?
Here are some of mine:
Boyfriend: Bimbo (I call lots of people bimbo actually, I probably need to stop)
Sister: Woman! (it’s ironic I promise)
Cat: Fat Whore, Fat Slut (she is pretty fat, and very friendly to everyone she meets so kind of a slut/whore)
I do my best not to use these nick names in polite company, as others may not realize I am using them as terms of endearment and not being rude, demeaning or crude.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this!
A good friend of mine goes by Ugly, a name my husband gave him in high school. If his wife didn’t call him by his given name, I don’t think he’d answer to it at all. The funny part is that he’s not ugly at all - he’s very good looking. That nickname has gotten him more women’s phone numbers…
We called a buddy in high school Sphincter (often abbreviated to Sphinct). I don’t think it had anything to do with the fact that is was an all boys school, it was just funnier than his real name of Spencer.
Friends of mine, a long-married couple, call each other “Fatty.” They are both trim and svelte. I’m guessing that maybe it’s derived from their having lived in Mexico together, where they were probably amused by how Mexicans call each other this (“Gordo”, etc.) without the rude sting it has in English (but when the person really is fat).
