I am taking FI’s last name which will mean changinf from an F to a T and moving significantly down the alphabet. Is anyone else disapointed to lose their spot in alphabetical order? I know it’S aminor thing but I can’t help but remember how great it was in school to be an F, never first but always within the first 1/4 of the class. Especially in large groups of people when alphabetical order seemed to be the default form of organization I never had to wait long. My cousin is a W and I remember sitting through his graduation where he was second to last to get his diploma and T is not far from W.
Has anyone else thought about this? Anyone excited to move up or down in alpha order?

YES! I’m going from C to W!!! Thats a loss of 20 spots!! I’m very disapointed. I liked being close to the start of the roll call at school. But my Fiance said this when I told him:
“Don’t worry sweetie, being a W means that when you drop the kids off at school you will have an extra minute to get them there! That means you can sleep in 1 extra minute a day, so 5 minutes a week, that will add up quickly honey!”
He is such a doofus.

I’m going from B to J so I’m pretty good. I hated being B because I was almost always sitting in the front of the class. I’m a little OCD and I hate people sitting behind me…It wasn’t good

I went from a B to a S so I understand! I was always in the first row in classrooms!

Oh, it kills me. I went from a B to an L and miss being up front in the alphabet!

I’m going from J to B. Middle to right up front! lol. I always loved being in the middle because no matter which way up the alphabet the teacher went, I was always halfway through, never first or last.

No because I am only moving down four spaces. However, I am going from a very uncommon last name to a very common last name.

Sorry ladies, I’m in the opposite camp: I went from Z to C and I’m thrilled!

I’m going to from D to O, for me in HS it was always a craps shoot to see if I was going to be at the end of a row or at the front of the row. It always depended how many A’s, B’s and C’s there were! I’m kind of excited to have a last name that starts with a vowel, and I actually think my first name goes better with my future last name than my current last name (sorry mom and dad)!

L to R, not much, but I liked my spot in the middle, and I always thought of R as the beginning of the end.

We had the same last initial, so no changes for me. I wouldn’t have minded moving up a bit from P, but it was not to be … ha ha

This thread is funny! I’m not having much of a change; I’m only moving one letter.
