    Gotta admit – I love Ruthie in all her feistiness and courage. She is the best female character on the web.

    “I can TOO call people by their places. I’ll just ask the Homework Hotline Lady.”

    It’s not a bad idea to call people such names if you don’t know their name. At least everyone knows who you’re talking about.

    I’m terrible with names so “Guy”, “Kid” or simply “How you doing” works for me until I can remember something more specific.

    In Wales (UK) people in small villages, years ago, often differentiated between the many people with the same surname by referring to them as, for instance, ‘Jones the milk’ ‘Jones the farm’ ‘Jones the taxi’, and so on. None of them objected, as far as I know.

    -
    Jones the milk’ ‘Jones the farm’ ‘Jones the taxi’,

    A long time ago, we were taught that this was one way that people ended up with surnames. If your work involved showing horses, you were the farrier, so you ended up with the last name ’farrier’’; if you built barrels, you could end up with the last name ‘cooper’ and so on.

    True. But some people took their surname from the farm or city where they lived, for example: Bergen (for the city) or Stokke (for the farm)

    In the movie “Zulu” soldiers with the same name were addressed by their army serial number.(Welsh regiment, 24th Regiment of Foot later The Queen’s Own Welsh Borderers)

    I totally agree with Joe on this one.

    I wonder how Ruthie would take to being called… Sanitarium Sister. (I was about to say ‘twisted’ but then remembered that I needed to use a place name.)
