Does your name go with your job?

    I just watched the news and had to put this story on here:

    They are currently constructing a Tunnel under the A3. Nothing strange about that I hear you say but the funny thing is the construction manager is called Roger Bridge.

    I think he should change jobs, don't you?

    Sorry it just made me laugh....:biglaugh::biglaugh:

    When we were deciding on names for our 1st born I wanted to call him Jack after the grandfather I was called after (Jacqueline), Stephen didn't want to be out done so said we should also call him after his grandfather, Daniel.

     

    'Jack Daniel'

    Needless to say we didn't go with either!!!

     

    Although I genuinely do know a Scotch man called Johnny Walker:confused:

    I used to visit a timber merchants in Glasgow and the guy behind the counter had a name tag which read Dick Aitken and when you asked him if it was still painful he would just grunt and shake his head.

    Was he a mechanic?:biglaugh: Or a neurosurgeon???

    I found this thread highly amusing; i sometimes think people choose their jobs to suit their names, tho'

    for example, mr wood, the carpenter! Mr Barker, the vet...... oh the list could go on and on:err:

    Hi just to add.

     

    In the BRI hopsital one of the psycologist name was Dr Nutt.

    I had a client who was a vet her name is Anna Mall.

     

    Besides this our hair salon in Bristol was named Jarrett Hair and we had a few phone calls

    "Can I speak to Mr Hair please".

    Of course not our last name, just thought it funny.lol....
