name change

I’m just going to say it. Letting kids *rename* themselves is stupid. Ok, let me preface, I’m not talking about the  three year old boy who wants to be called Batman, I’m talking the older child. The slightly over educated hipster kid. The kid who picks a name out of a classic novel. I purposely never use the new name just to irritate them. Yes, I’m that immature. Granted, there are some *given* names that, in my ever humble opinion,  are straight up abusive to grow up with, but to quote Johnny Cash,

“Son, this world is rough And if a man’s gonna make it, he’s gotta be tough
And I knew I wouldn’t be there to help ya along.
So I give ya that name and I said goodbye
I knew you’d have to get tough or die
And it’s the name that helped to make you strong.”

Just sayin’
