Thread Name: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
Subject: RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
I am nearly computer illiterate. I needed my son to help me join the Mudcat. When my name "John" was taken I was stumped. My son said to use "pastorpest". "I am sure no one will have that one", he said. I use the term because as a clergy person I am always working with volunteers. When I am phoning a volunteer for the umpteenth time on a project we are working on I will identify myself on the phone as "pastorpest". It is a humorous way of acknowledging how much time and effort that volunteer has already given and is still being asked to give.
