Listen, I’m gonna tell you a cold, hard fact of life that we all learn at one point or another…

We have no control over what people are going to name us in their phones. NONE. ZILCH. ZERO. NADA.

I learned this the hard way a while ago when I found out that one of my friends had me in their phone as…wait for it…DUMMY.

That’s right, DUMMY. How do you think that made me feel?

Actually, I probably deserved it, but still, it hurt my feelings and I cried for a while.

Okay, let’s move on!

Here are some funny tweets people shared about how we just can’t control what other folks are gonna call us.

1. You weren’t supposed to see that.

Uh oh!

2. You can’t change that one.

Marked for life!

3. You are the Mothership.

Makes sense.

4. We get it.

And you are a real gentleman.

5. I like this one.

Keepin’ it hot!

6. Street cred.

Boom, shake the room!

7. You have good neighbors.

They’re hard to find!

8. Survival tips.

Well, this is practical.

9. Mom and wife.

These are both good.

10. I’m sure he appreciates that.

It’s about time!
