I got my captain's license in 1999 and my wife at the time wanted to do something special for me. So she had personaized plates for my truck made. At the time Texas only allowed 6 digits. All the obvious captain stuff were already taken. She came up with a shortened version including my first initial.
It stuck big time...I bet there are a bunch of people I chat with regularly who don't know my name! My dad calls me by that and totally quit using my real name.
OMT-my present wife doesn't know this story so don't leak it out! or else...
