Today, I introduced myself, Pete, to my new coworkers at a shipyard. An hour into my shift, everyone started calling me re-Pete because I have a bit of a stutter. FML

Actually, if they bothered to give you a nickname, even if it’s insulting, you’re “in.” Be a good sport about it, and you’ll be fine. Or, just tell them to “F-f-f-fuck off!!”

That there's harassment. Payback in the form of H.R. Can help

You probably don't make friends at work often do you?

Not if they are making fun of someone's disability.

I mean honestly how would you like to deal with something your whole life to have the place you go to most ridicule you for it?

How would I like it? I've been in the military for over 7 years with two deployments. I've heard my fair share of messed up yet funny nicknames. Unless it's truly degrading/ discriminating or really going to far people need to thicken their skin so to speak. Don't run to HR to solve all your problems.

Wow...rub your comment out Mr pencil

Perhaps it is you, Ms. Moghal, that should go rub one out!

yah sure that makes sense

Pete and re-Pete were in a boat. Pete fell out, who is left?

Pete. He fell out of the boat, he's getting left behind.

I imagine this joke gets pretty tired very quickly, I imagine this joke gets pretty tired very quickly, I imagine this joke gets pretty tired very quickly.

I didn't get that can you say it again? e_e

Wow!! People are assholes!!

I believe there's a South Park episode that can explain this for you. It's called "Here comes the Neighborhood".

Come on, you work at a shipyard and I bet it's 95% men. It's just a way men bond, giving each other stupid names..

I know a lot of people will say don't let it get to you, but this could be considered workplace harassment.

Well at least you don't have to fear falling out of a boat.
