an observation
If my last name were "Boner"..... I would really rethink the army career decision.

Because it's really not cool when I have to talk to a person on the phone and call them "Major Boner"

and on that same note: If your last name is "Dick" Same observation....except please...PLEASE do not go into the Navy. Because then I have to call you Seaman Dick.

And please do not get upset when I address you as Private Burns. Because all I can think of is sending you some Blue Star Ointment. And I giggle uncontrollably.

Thanks for letting me share my traumatizing moments today.

    My husband had a guy in his boot camp named "pretty". Then a guy in his shop named "lay". I know I would have had too much fun laughing at those poor guys.

    Too funny. The boner dude definitely should have concerned a name change, I agree.

    I work with a guy whose last name is "Lay" - everyone calls him "Frito"... with our e-mails set up, though, his is "slay"!

    And I had a teacher in high school named Mr. Dick. He named his daughter Anita. Or so the story went.

    There was a member at the country club I worked at named Seymour Pecker. One of the membership ladies had to call and ended up laughing uncontrollably when she asked his wife if he was available.

    Your Mr. Boner apparently gets around. My wife conducted a secret shopper at a local Hooters this past Thursday evening. (See my last post for description of this adventure). Apparently this particular Hooters was conducting a fund raiser for a local charity...the type where one makes a monetary contribution and for having done so one gets their name printed on a paper placard taped to the wall. I was scanning the number of such contributors taped to the wall adjacent to out table and there he was...gave $5.00. Not exactly a "major" contribution, but at least his heart was in the right place.

    Perhaps it is french and pronounced bon-ay?

    No? Then perhpas someone should send him the website for directions on how to change your name.
