You are my Destiny, Ooops I mean Destyni October 24, 2008

Filed under: Daily Grind — booksunread @ 12:18 pm

So this morning I was in the drive thru lane and in front of me was an SUV with the cutesy high school letters with their kids names on them.  They had two-one for Devon (not so bad) and one for Destyni (WTF?!?). That is not a typo.  Somebody thought it would be a good idea to not only name their kid something as cheesy as Destiny, but then they spelled it all jacked up. 

When I was teaching college, I had a “Chastidy” on my class roster. Unfortunately, she never showed up for class.

And while I’m at it, I really think those little car sports name stickers are kind of a bad idea.  I saw a little gymnast sticker one time and all I could think was that it was like advertising to pedophiles.  “My daughter’s name is Olivia. She’s very bendy! Come and get her!”

    My sister told me (I’m not sure her source) that people who name their kids with a jacked up spelling did not go to college. I’ll have to find out where she got that info as I believe it to be true!

    Yeah, you’d think, huh? But they were from the high school in my burb which is pretty upper mid-class, not what you’d expect at all.
