Caller ID – Nicknames For People In Your Phone – [Video]
I’m not exactly sure how many phone numbers I currently have stored in my cell, but it seems like an astronomical amount. Not that I’m that popular, it’s just been a long time since I went through and deleted the contacts of some people that I don’t really have any need to talk to any more. But, I was thinking about it the other day as I was scrolling through my contacts and I realized that I do something that apparently isn’t all that uncommon. I give the contacts in my phone nicknames. Sometimes it’s because I can’t remember their name. Sometimes it’s because I know I won’t remember who they are based on their name alone, so they need a description. Sometimes I put their last name in as the place where I met them so that I remember.
In fact, there was a time when 50% of my contacts’ last names were the locations where I met them. It’s really only been since Facebook came around that I’ve been able to figure out last names (I’m a professional Facebook stalker, don’t judge me).
The video below proves to me that I’m not the only one. I’m just glad that “Creepy Dave” and “Sweaty Jeremy” have never been looking at my phone as they called me…
