Do you have one of those names? You know, one where when people learn it, they tend to make one dumb joke? And every person who makes that same joke seems to think they are the first one to ever think of that joke? And you are supposed to respond to it every single time like it is clever and actually made you laugh, even though you just heard it for the 6,980,902’th time?
Yeah, I have one of those names. “Hi, I’m Robin,” almost never fails to garner the response, “Ha! Where’s Batman?” You know, I don’t know. He is a fictional character, and I am a real person, so I just don’t know. Sorry. Apparently, I am not alone in experiencing this. People with all sorts of names also experience similar things, except with different jokes, of course. And they are sharing them on Twitter. I have to say, even though these dumb name jokes are infuriating, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one experiencing this.
