account names

the pita thread made me think of this. what nicknames do you have for your accounts? here are some of mine:
iwo jima guy - (was at pearl harbor when bombed, then fought through the pacific theatre until wounded the last time at iwo. really cool guy to talk to)

charity lady
pill lady
dr. fu**stick (play on his name)
resort (lots of palms)
junk man (supplies scrap steel to local steel mill)
father and son (2 gay guys who swear they are father and son)
hot daughter #1
hot daughter #2
hot daughter's mom
mrs milfy
lawyer boy
mr pole-in-ak (play on name)

there are more, but you get the gist. what are yours?

Well with 127 accounts I can't ever recall giving any of my clients nicknames. I do feel that through the years a few have probably came up with a few for me though.

I hear you, this is a practice I am glad escapes me, thou I've known Lco's who do this, I just use whichever name (first or last, usually last) is easiest to ID for me.

Funny we have nick names too, but more for where they are located. One customer we call Buena Vista, spanish for good view.

Interesting, I too have a customer about 85 years old who was at Pearl Harbor. The customer that I have said a huge amount of survivors of pearl harbor, about 100 or so a day are dying. He is a great guy to talk to informative and worldly. Bet they might have even met before.

the part about them dying is true. iwo guy told me that there used to be 4-500 members of his batallion at the reunions when they began in the early 70's, now there are 20-30. "the greatest generation" is disappearing before our eyes.
