How did you come to decide on you're SF user name? Is there a story behind it or was it a case of just popping in the first thing that came to mind?

There isn't a whole lot of story behind mine. There was a Simpsons character named Dredrick Tatems - he was the boxing champion in the episode Homer took up boxing. My name being Tate, Tatems became a nick name and then became Tatus Maximus which shortened to Tatus. It was an easy choice to make it my SF log in name.

Alas! The mystery behind my user name has come to light.

What is your story?

Has been my nickname since 2005ish. Was working nightshift on the overhead at brunswick st on a sat night. Couple of drunks started hassling me and my coworker before things got heated. They started ****ing with the machine we were working on so descended and ended up toweling up 3 drunk dudes in my uniform. Ever since then ive been the Hitman.
Bit of a pain on here because theres another guy called hitman124 or something that i think alot of you guys know.

This may shock a lot of you but I'm kinda a short person.

At my last job I worked with someone else with the same first name but they were kinda tall. So most customers referred to me as Little.....

My nickname at the time of signing up was piranha/deano the piranha so I just shortened that. I have no idea where the nickname came from or why but it started with my basketball teammates then before long the boys from footy and work were calling me piranha.

I didnt realise that when I put in my details that I didn't have to put in my real name. Yes my real name is Chad, so the mystery ends there.

But to make it a bit different HB (HaroldBishop) started calling me Chadley and it's stuck.

I always thought the P stood for Peach. Interesting

I've never really had a nickname, except from my Mum as a little girl.
Although my Hubby has about 10 different names for me - I reckon its cause he can never remember my real one
- he reckons he just has a name for each personality.

UpUpCronulla was taken.

UpUpCronulla1967 was taken.

Well, you can figure out the rest.

It also happens to be my Xbox Live username, so feel free to add me.
