    A colleague of mine has been known as “wump” for years. I didn’t think anything of it until someone asked why that was his nickname, and one of the old boys said:

    “that was the sound he made when he got run over about twenty years ago”

    nice

      Similar story, I had a coworker who went by Skippy and it turns out people call him that because he still walks with a limp from a car crash that killed his brother.

      I started calling him Shaun

        Is Shawn his name or the noise he made in the car crash?

        I got the nickname “Ralph” because I was wicked hungover at work during covid shutdown and threw up.
