wrong name for the job.
« on: 13/11/2007 16:40:08 »
remember hearing peoples names that just do not go with their job, do you know any? do you want to share them?

i'll start it off:

the Americans among us will know this, When Thomas Payne was young he was a privateer on the ship The Terrible commanded by Captain Death!

Dennis is more likely to become a dentist.

And someone with the name Paul is more likely to become a scientist.

because of the way my last name is spelled, people sometimes pronounce it cock so I may end up a chicken farmer.
