And never want to look me in the eye again?

Bloke at work was chatting about work and was spelling out some bloke's name : Cockrem.

But he didn't just say 'Cockrem', he said ' you know, COCK'


I said, 'oh yes, him, John (not real name) Cockrem'

I was so embarrassed - surely he must have been?


Not sure what my aibu is really confused

I understand what you mean, I've had two similar discussions with immature colleagues.

One getting himself into a tizzy about the perfectly normal name 'Woodcock' and another 'Cockburn'. I interfered with the latter one to make sure they didn't make a tit of themselves pronouncing it wrong on the phone to a client.

It's a surname with the word cock in it. Get over it.

I don't think she said cock. Think she said Co--ck--rem like Corem to correct him.

I think?

I think some bloke said cock to the OP, because it was in part of someone else's surname, but it's not entirely clear.

Is this that much of an issue? hmm

MrsToothyBitch Mon 21-Oct-19 17:48:25

You ok hun? hmm

He said 'COCK' not me! shock

I've put it in big letters cos he really emphasised it, booming voice :COCK!


That's not the guy's name though, cock just happens to be part of his name

HauntedmessFrogbeaver Mon 21-Oct-19 17:50:01

I've never heard of that surname. Sorry. I would've said cock too

I guess you had to be there 🙄

Idontneeditatall Mon 21-Oct-19 17:50:20

I still don’t get it. He said the word cock as part of someone’s name and you think he won’t be able to look you in the eye again?!!!

Witchinaditch Mon 21-Oct-19 17:50:24

Who are the 50% that think you’re not being unreasonable? I would t find it embarrassing but I would find it very funny!

Waiting1987 Mon 21-Oct-19 17:50:46

confused I still don't get why he should be embarrassed. I wouldn't blush if I said cockerel.

We need a diagram.

Don't play badminton. You have to hit a shuttlec**k

Bluerussian Mon 21-Oct-19 17:53:43

Hilarious, not.

How about the name, 'Condon', ? You can imagine kids sniggering and altering one of the letters.

'Rance' would be 'Rancid'.

You're not kids.

What is everyone not understanding? He didn't just say it as part of them name, by saying "cockrem". If he'd just said the name, then there'd be no awkward moment. But he didn't. He as spelling it out and said "cockrem... You know... COCK". It's something 14 year old boys would do in school if someone's surname had cock in it. He stopped the normal reading of the name to go "you know, COCK". Emphasising the syllable with a haha, it's got cock it.

He's an idiot.
