@peemee ha! I used to chef in a pasta joint and my standard answer for "how long for table x?" was always two minutes! Totally a noodle!

@peemee My Dad used to work on the waterfront. They had a man there who had the nickname 'the Judge' because he was always sitting on a case...

@peemee Many years ago working for the old Ministry of Works, we had a bloke called "Pockets" because thatʹs where his hands always were. His occasional other nickname was "The Policeman" for his tendency to appear for a chat, stand around watching the others work, and then wander off.
