Re: Where does your username come from?

[ Edited ]

Didn't get a chance to catch up with this topic until now, loving all the stories. And no worries, I'm not in a wrist-slapping mood. Smiley Tongue

 

I also thought @Anonymous when I saw the front of the mug that your nickname was Air Traffic Control. LOL 

 

& I'm very curious now @MI5Thoughful

 

@WispaRed7 I knew the Wispa part but didn't remember where the Red came from, nice to know! I was wondering if it was another cat. Smiley Happy

Re: Where does your username come from?

I have used the same username for many years.  I think it was the original username when I became an O2 customer about 15 years ago

Thanks

Re: Where does your username come from?

Mines just my name and 'O2'. In previous Community Management jobs I've used a more obscure username but as most other staff on this Community have used their own names I thought I'd follow the trend. cool

Re: Where does your username come from?

Been a bit busy so just got to this. Crazy

 

Mine is just a contraction of my name and was originally my Compuserve address a long long time ago as my name was already in use, and it stuck.

Not by blood. However I had a load of cousins who lived in South Elmsall and their Nan was my 'adopted Nan... My own grandmother (a Geordie) was an unspeakable tyrant.

So I used to spend a few summer holidays in Yorkshire...as well as Sunderland with my aunt...
