This is definitely off topic...
I'm sure most of you have noticed that when I post I have the signature line as "Doc" and I bet one or two of you have asked, huh why does he call himself doc. Well this is the question I want to ask, when is a person deserving enough to take on the title "Doc"
I have a few definitions that I personally consider as Doc material
So just a little background on the subject, I got the nickname shortly after coming to college, with in my first couple weeks I had provided first aid to people who had gotten themselves into some bad states... like broken legs, OD's, alcohol poisoning, etc... And my friends felt I should be dubbed Doc... When I returned to Pittsburgh on break and ran some calls with my old ambulance company, and the asst. chief started calling me Doc randomly one day, when I returned this year to visit mostly everyone in the company was calling me Doc along with most of the firefighters from my station also. This nickname grew on me without me pushing it forward at all. I question though whether or not I'm worthy of it. Someone I've know for a while decided to pose the question in a spiteful manner "that I'm not actually a real doctor" This is why I want to ask the question...
Do ya'll have an opinion on the subject? Who's worthy of being a "doc" and if you all feel that my signature is not appropriate I shall remove it on request.
