Skinny guy - a.k.a. my graduate student. He is Asian and yes, he is skinny, but not overly so.
Hat guy - this is the M.D./Ph.D. student in the lab that wears a baseball hat almost every day.
Tall girl - M.D. working in the lab.
The best/most annoying one (depending on your perspective) is:
Canteen. This is how s/he refers to me. S/he tried to read my name off of a shipping label and this is what s/he came up with. Now, my name is a bit difficult to pronounce when you read it. People typically say it one of three ways, none of which are correct. I thought I had heard it all, but apparently I has not.
Here is what Canteen has in common with my real name:
(1) starts with a C
(2) contains the letters N and A
(3) is two syllables.
Here is what Canteen does not have in common with my real name:
(1) My name is not Canteen
(2) My name does not have "teen" or anything that looks like "teen" anywhere in it.
(3) In fact, my name does not contain the letters T or E
(4) My name contains 4 letters total.
