I had to work with an american colleague for a while called Richard Holder. He insisted I called him Dick. Even his email was Dick Holder.

And meeting someone who introduces themselves as " I'm the Dick Holder you've heard about" and sticks out his arm to shake, the urge to say "Have you washed your hands?" is overwhelming

As you pull into Raynes Park station in London, there's a building across the road with a sign saying "Payne Funerals".

A sign to to die for, athough I would never go with them.


I also knew a girl called Polly, her middle name was Esther.

Oh I went to school with a guy whose name was Justin McDonald. His mother remarried after his father died and when he was adopted by his new dad he became Justin Case.

I used to work with European traders.

My fav was a Swede/Dane called 'Jurgen Kunz'....of course his first name sounded more like 'your'an'.

You beat me to this one. Use to make me smile when I received letters from Allianz. He could also be known as T Towell.

When I taught in SW Sydney there were a pair of Asian twins known as Pepsi and Fanta. Of course the name Phuc (pronounced Fook) can be interesting for a beginning teacher. A friend of mine, on his first day, pronounced it with the short vowel sound. Another friend tells of a girl he taught called Bumsuk (pronounced Bomsook) and Layme.
