Polly Pocket

Rating: 2 votes, 3.00 average.
The English lads whom I worked with for couple of weeks gave me a nick name: Polly Pocket!

Reasons
1. Because they think I'm cute (so they said, but I guess it's just so that I'll help him more hehehe)...
2. Because I'm small. Every time they talked about my height, they always talked as if I were the smallest girl on planet earth ...But I think there are smaller females than me.


It's funny that some nick names don't even related to the actual names or the description/personality of the person itself. For example

-My friend, Richard, his nickname is Freddie

He's English and they say it's common for someone named Richard to be called Freddie ..

I also don't know why William can be Bill..

But I like the new nick name...
I'm not blonde though

    Virg, how come 'Bill for Will' is not hard to fanthom?

    Will----Bill??

    I tried to ask the English blokes, but seems there's no clear explanation of why Richard becomes Freddie. They said, 'it's just how it is'.
