PostSubject: Quirky Quirks   Thu Nov 07, 2013 9:43 pm

We all have one. Or many. Care to share?

I have one. It's probably stupid. But I don't let people call me "Tony" unless I'm close to them. Like, that name is only reserved for family and closer friends. Everyone else, I tell them I'm Anthony.

I think I know why I'm weird this way and it stems from childhood. My mom's boyfriend's son was named Anthony. So I couldn't be Anthony. I had to be Tony. I was the older kid, so why I couldn't be who I wanted, I will never know lol. So I guess Anthony was the "forbidden" name.

Maybe I'm just so completely and thoroughly weird that there's not one thing in particular that sticks out Razz

I'm an insanely giggly/smiley person. Seriously...even if someone tells me something serious, I'd probably either smile or giggle...even my co-workers gave me the nickname Giggles. >.>

Yay I'm so glad you made this thread. Smile I was thinking about making one like this.. but I always forget to make the threads when I get to a computer. Very Happy

Personally I think Anthony and Tony are both good names. I have/had family with those names. Smile


That is awesome squeakers. Smile

Well, in the end, I guess I really don't care what I'm called. It's just my quirk that I make the effort to make sure new people I meet call me Anthony and reserve Tony for those I'm closer to. I'll tell people my name and they'll start calling me Tony, which surprises me, but it doesn't upset me or anything.

^ Yeah, it's weird that most people do that. I'm the opposite. I don't ever give someone a nickname or call them by a shortened name from the original, such as Tony for Anthony or Mike for Michael or Jim for James. That is, unless the person specifically asks me to or they introduce themselves by a nickname, which clearly indicates that you have full permission to call them by that name. This reminds of one of our interpreters when I went to Romania. This interpreter was gypsy Romanian. He went by the name George, so naturally we all called him Georgethinking that that was his name, but it wasn't. It was a nickname he had been given as a baby and his real name was Adrian. He hated being called George, so I personally was horrified that I had been calling him a name he hated. Lol.

Anyway...well, as I recently admitted, I prefer being called 'Sharon' and not by a nickname. I have one nickname and it originated from my sister who calls me by that nickname still, and I don't like anyone else using that nickname.

Other quirks...hmm...let me think. I'm sure I've got plenty.

Okay cool! I'm glad that my quirk isn't so quirky then haha. I love to give people nicknames (as you know lol) but only to those I'm close with. So why they call me Tony when I tell them my name is Anthony is beyond me Very Happy

I've generally always gone by just my name too. Very Happy No one has really tried to shorten it. I shortened it myself for my mario kart character though. ^_^

Hmmm...this is an interesting thread. Very Happy 

It is a really hard question though, because I don't always pay attention to things I do that others might consider to be quirky, so I'd have to think it over. Suspicious
