Yes my ex-step-father-in-law.

One of the most boring men I have ever met. Never realised he was boring you. You could yawn in his face and he wouldn’t blink.


#3

My uncle is called Peter. He’s great (though he’s not my great uncle) - very intelligent and wise.


#4

I work with a Peter. Never heard anyone call him Pete. Good bloke.

Yes, used to work with one. Nice man.

Doesn’t work there any more, because he is also a smart man.

I do


#13

I think my brain fried unpicking that.

My dad has never really been Pete that I’ve known just Peter.

Most Peters I have known have been both interchangeably. Whereas think I have never known a Richard who wasn’t Rich, even if he wished otherwise deep down.

Father in law’s a Pete/Peter. And a nice old man I knew once who smoked roll ups, told entertaining stories, drank whiskey and took us sailing. We scattered his ashes over the water when he died. Nice chap.
