The Story About Ping was about a duck, not this website.

That’s Not My Name

Occasionally, in a public place or some other situation, someone will call you by a name that is not your own. I’m very curious as to why this happens (besides the obvious, “gee, maybe he/she forgot”) but I’m even more curious as to what names everyone has been called.

The one I remember most is Steve. I was actually called Steve twice by the same person on two separate occasions, even though we had talked many times in-between. It just doesn’t feel “right”, though… I don’t think I could ever be Steve.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
