Nicknames

The mill I worked at for 22 years closes up on June 16… The machinery is already down, and they are just doing cleanup now. I have already moved on to a new job.

I want to pay tribute to some of the people I worked with. These are some of the nicknames that have come up over those 22 years. Some people have multiple nicknames. Some of these people are long since gone from the mill, most will be there until the end.

I’d like to hear other amusing nicknames you have or have heard. One of my favourites, that my neighbour told me, is ‘The Missing Link’, but I never could tag anyone at work with it, they all already had nicknames.

Mine is of course, The Sloth.

This will likey be my last post for awhile, for personal reasons.

Sloth,
You’ve been a contributer to this site for some time, and I appreciate all of your input. Whatever personal reason that will keep you away, I wish you the best of luck with it and hope all goes well.
That list is pretty awesome. I think I know some of those guys, and now I know what to call them. As a tribute to you, I feel it would not be proper to add or mar your list, you already have said it all.

I didn’t know you were a mill worker.

My husband is a millwright and used to work in a mill. A lot of the guys had nicknames. I don’t remember them all, but I do know he worked with a Napoleon Dynamite and a Poopie Pants.

I hope you start posting again soon and that whatever is going on in your life gets sorted out. I really appreciate all of the personal help you have given me.

My brother Timothy,
btw also a millwright
by trade, was called
Big Tuna b/c thats
all he’d pack for lunch.
Tuna & Lettuce. Day in &
Day Out.

it’s been my nickname since i was 19
if i hear it in a crowded arena–i’ll know who it is before i turn around!

My favourite would have to be one given to my mate, which is Romney(type of sheep) as supposedly he looks a bit like one. It just cracks me up every time I hear the word. Also ‘Sick Looking piece’, another nichname that cracks me up although i suppose its more of a saying than a nickname.

The boss at my work was called the Missing link as he seriously used to walk like an ape and he had these massively long arms which would almost drag the floor. some others I enjoy:

Dazed haze:(guy at work who is always lost)

b-ball: Fat guy at old work, not sure of the meaning but it seemed to suit him

mixed bag: gotta love this one

Multi-tool: another random nickname given to a guy at work.

Smegma: felt sorry for this guy, was in my class at school, chants used to go on in class and assembly. He ended up leaving the school.

Poopypants is a good one. I worked with a guy who lost it in his pants when we were jacking up and righting a building.
We couldn’t nickname him though, cause he quit that day.
