Mean Nicknames

As a kid, I didn’t have many nicknames, which is probably fortunate. About the only one I can remember is “Big Mac,” and then later, “Laze.” However, I do remember two kids on my school bus that had pretty mean and unfortunate nicknames. One they called “Snotman” because he always had mucus visible somewhere on his face. Another they called “Diaperman” (oddly, they lived very close to each other) who always smelled like baby powder. I guess kids really can be cruel.

Do you have any memories of particularly evil nicknames attached to kids you knew? Or maybe to you, yourself? -ram

a girl from my old middle school who’s real name was Amara was once being offered a piece of bubble gum after health class when we were learning about the different kinds of drugs. “Amara, wanna piece of gum?” just happened to sound like “A marijuana piece of gum.” so of course she adopted the new nickname- a-marijuana. it is true that in fact kids will take every opportunity they can to make themselves feel better.

There was one kid who seemed to be a little feminine so kids called him ‘Gary minus the “r”‘. You can go ahead and figure that out… it was a bit mean but people would just call him Gary. He never found out but he actually turned out to be gay.

I was referred to as the leprechaun of my class because of my Irish accent. It was a little funny at first… But then it got mean. People would shove me and make jokes…

If I didn’t have my friend Mark, I probably would’ve become very bitter.

Like in field hockey, a girl knocked me over with a blow from her stick and started laughing as I bled. I don’t get how they thought it was funny. Or how the gym teacher didn’t notice…

I guess what I’m trying to say is… Nicknames can really suck…
