As a reminder to everyone on the other side of the desk:  Keep in mind that we’re people, too–the people behind the library circulation desk, the people in the Dean’s office, etc..

I get that law students are stressed.  I’ve literally been there.  I understand.

But as easy as it is to let law school control your life and dictate your moods, try to remember that every person you come into contact with really does have feelings, too.

Also, if you’re chronically cranky, know that we’re probably going to talk about you.  But, on the flip side, if you’re extraordinarily nice, we’re probably going to take notice of that, as well.

And so, I give you, Nicknames, Part II: The Law Students (and Community Patrons).

  • Baby
  • Nepal
  • Scrunchy
  • UglyPants
  • YellowShirt
  • Laptop Thief
  • Creeper
  • GloveMan

Most of these nicknames aren’t creative, I realize.  Some of them are mean.  Some are endearing.  There are others, not listed, that are quite cruel and many of “you” are simply known by your last name.

Oh, and for the record, it’s not always a good thing that someone knows your name.  Sometimes?  Sure.  Always?  Definitely not.
