One of my co-workers has a habit of calling me “Mr. Cullen”, no doubt due to that being the name on my name tag. Every time he does, I have to resist the urge to say back “Don’t call me Mr. Cullen. My father was Mr. Cullen. Call me Cullen.”
Not simply because the joke won’t work because a.) it really should be a surname and not a first name and b.) even if it did, Dad’s name wasn’t Cullen. No one at Wal-mart would know or care.
The real trouble is that I’m fairly certain my coworker is an immigrent and the whole reference would go right by him.
Speaking of references.
The other day another coworker informed me that rather than us my name she’s been referring to me as “that Twilight Guy,” since thankfully Stephenie Meyer decided to attach my name to her sparkly vampires.
Which I’m not bitter about
Anyway, this has inspired a line of thought. A sort of re-branding. Welltun Cares Reviews is such a dry name. But Professor Guy Twilight’s Aquarium of Questionable Acquisitions does has an interesting ring to it. Especially as it plays off the whole minnow/Whale thing I’ve been doing…
