    Hey guys, I finished a oil drilling course Dec 1 and getting work soon! Which of course mean I get to spend MAJOR bucks for collecting, after paying bills for course. But most guys have a drilling name, a nickname, so I came here to get a few ideas! I thought Sparkplug might do seeing how He's the first Humans the 'BOTS meet and he's a driller!

    what do you think, and try to stay TF related names.

    Drillnutz is the right answer of course.

    Nosecone is cool also.

    Don't you have to get a nickname from the people you work with?

    I always thought it was something you got given to you, after you were accepted as a driller by the other guys.

    The anime fan in me wants to suggest Lagann though. Just refer to everyone you work with as members of the Great Gurren Brigade ;)

    This is correct. You don't get to pick it, it is given to you by your worker buddies.

    I'm *guessing* the worker buddies at this drilling place will give you the nickname of...

    LIL' NUTTER McBEANBAGS

    Which, incidentally, has nothing to do with drilling. Now get out there and EARN that nickname!

    Twin Twist of course. But then you have to pay royalties to the UK.

    My job has a built-in nickname: "Doc."

    Which is good, because I wouldn't want to take a chance at ending up Lil' Nutter McBeanbags.

    I did work with a guy once who told everyone, "Call me 'Snake.'" No one did, but he actually did terrify the shit out of me.

    Oh, and a guy who told everyone to call him "Rev." We caught him cheating on his wife in the chapel tent.

    Yeah, I think looking for nicknames is trouble.

    To get that nickname, all you need to do is hum that little tune every time you move. :)

    We called some fat guy I worked with "Lunchbox" and every once in a while "Tubby McBlubber". I really don't think he asked for either of those names, but no one would call him Ninja like he wanted. Well they did call him the Snack Samurai sometimes, though.

    "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thur-"

    But seriously, just ask the other guys what your nickname should be and you'll be known as "NICKNAME GUY".
