I get called weird but not so much random.
It wouldn't bother me at the slightest.

That’s not something I usually get (only because people can’t tell what’s happening in my mind :lol: ), but I think I would feel indifferent about it - not particularly good or bad, unless I could tell it was meant in a negative way.

Not really, to be honest. It doesn't bother me.

Never been called that, and have never even heard anyone call anyone else "random". Never even heard of such a thing.

Closest thing was some local bar singer-guitar picker I saw who was called "Chance" because he like to gamble.


Why do folks call you "random". And how do they do it? Is it nickname? Or is just adjective that they apply to you when you talk about random things?

The only time I see anyone get called "random" anymore is if they're acting "zomg lol xD" type random. If someone called me "random" I'd be confused.

Nope. Also, I may or may not be doing it on purpose to keep them off guard.

Depends.
I wouldn't mind for most part, except when I shouldn't.
