“My stupid parents named me Millicent, when I did my ID the Home Affairs people laughed at me but at the end they changed Millicent to Vincent, I will never forgive my parents. Never!!!”
“I know a Petronella. We used to call him Pat until we graduated for this other certificate and when they handed it over to him they said it out Loud. He didn’t stand up and they kept on calling him until another guy came to drag him 😂😂”
