Yanbu. I had a teach called Mrs Pratt.

Could they just use a different name?

I had a Mr Small who was as round as he was tall, and a Mr Big who was built like a bean pole.

Miss Lavender was an acid tongued bitch, and Mrs Marshall was meek and quiet.

We also used to merge the first inital with the surname so Mr Oliver in year seven, Toliver in year eight and Toll for the subsequent years.

We decided her nickname must be piss pot.

We had a Mr Willy :D

GrassIsntGreener Thu 19-Sep-13 22:26:53

We had a Mr least that's what everyone called him I now think it wasn't a real name...

Our Mr Pratt was anything, but. He was very nice and very good.

I always felt for our local solicitor - Mr Careless. Not the most confidence inspiring thing to read in a brass plaque.

I had a student teacher called Mrs Grocock.

You couldn't make it up.
She decided not to pursue a career in teaching.

We had a teacher called mr o'hare ( pronounced hair) who was so bald his head shone. He was therefore named mr no'hair. We were such geniuses.

We also had a mr pratt
Mr cock
Mrs gay.

Theres so many names like that where I am. I worked ina few rrestaurants and taking the bookings was bloody hilarious.

caramelwaffle Thu 19-Sep-13 22:37:29

Why in all that is holy in Odin's land would you not just use a different name for your profession?!

WorkingtoohardMama Thu 19-Sep-13 22:38:22

My head of year was called mr p hiscock, we were so disappointed to find out his first name was Paul and not phil!

MortifiedAdams Thu 19-Sep-13 22:39:42

I know a Richard (dick) Hiscock!

curiousgeorgie Thu 19-Sep-13 22:39:52

Puds 11!! I think we went to the same school!

MortifiedAdams Thu 19-Sep-13 22:40:07

Love "Mr no'hare"


montymum Thu 19-Sep-13 22:44:05

I choose to use Mrs pratt as I wanted to take my husbands name. I decided that it would be hypocritical to send my children to school with this name but refuse to use it myself. I have actually never had a negative response from any of the children in the primary school I teach. I am sure the parents have a giggle though!

ChubbyKitty Thu 19-Sep-13 23:13:42

We had a Mr McDonald.

Doesn't seem funny until you find out his first name was Donald!grin

We had a Mr. Nutter. He killed himself a few years after I left school by jumping off a multi-storey car park.
