The Hooker

November 19, 2007

I officiate at weddings and I have an annoying coworker who insists on calling me a hooker because I ‘hook people up’ so to speak.  I understand that this is actually a proper use of the word.  I have repeatedly asked him not to call me a hooker because, well, I’m not a hooker in the American slang sense of the word and that’s the definition that most Americans think of when they hear ‘hooker’.  And after my repeated requests that he call me an officiant or celebrant when referring to the fact that I join people in marriage, he once again today called me a hooker. 

I seriously want to slap this man.
