    Nope - interesting idea, but if I go off the radar and don’t want to be found, I really dont want to be found…and it’s happened a couple of times. I guess that leaves the onus on me to claw myself back - and a couple of times in the past it has been a deep dark hole to climb out of.

    Penelope Grungefutuck………………common enough to be easily overlooked. Used to work with a guy called John Smith. Lots who had cause to ask his name looked at him thinking ‘yeah, right, bet it isn’t’.

    I always said that if I was ever forced to go back into radio, my on-air name was going to be Lance Boyle.

    Not an emergency alias but I do have a name I’ll use if using my real name doesn’t get me to the person I need to speak to. It’s close enough to my real name that I can blame the person putting the call through on mis-hearing it.

    An example. We had a puppy that came from the shelter. The second day we had her she had developed parvovirus.
    I called the shelter and gave my name and that I needed to speak to so-and-so. She’s busy can she call you back? Yes. No return call. After three tries, and discovering my vet tried to reach her, I call and give my name as Dave Harris. I apologized for lying about my name a went into a tirade. She got an ear full, the shelter got a harsh letter from me revoking my support for the shelter as long as so-and-so was still there
    Long story short so-and-so is gone and Sara Lee is still here. Long in the tooth and with medical issues but she’s still with us almost 15 years later

    I have an uncle whose name really IS John Smith.....although it often helped that he had an "M.D." after his name.
    He and his wife used to laugh about when they were married in 1955, how they went to a hotel without reservations, and the looks they got trying to check in. ;)

    I have a stage name.
    I haven’t used it, yet.
    Otherwise, nope.

    This, and there are means and ways of doing it. An egocentric will never ask any way, and avoid clingy people, spongers, and ponce's.

    I find it quite easy to just not talk to people; then it never comes up

    My father used to work with a guy named James Dean and once came home from a business trip where the two of them went to check into their hotel. Dean checked in first and the guy at the desk looked at both of them and said, "sure, and I'll bet your friend here is Buddy Holly."
