    Don't you hate it when people say they have to "use the John"? It INFURIATES ME! It is an insult to people named John!

    I prefer using the crapper. Or just plain ol' "I need to take a sh$t BRB" :D

    I know a few Johns. Luckily in this country we dont use that word when talking about toilets. The Bog is much more commonly heard :D

    Johns have been getting a bad wrap ... some people still blame the hookers

    I introduce my self as John Doe sometimes... Mostly when I don't want someone knowing my real name (My last name is very unique)...

    I am a Jon and I don't get offended by this as I know the context of what is being said and just don't really care

    My full name rhymes with John Doe, and my last name can be used to make fun of me in so many creative ways.

    It was a pain in my childhood, but saying you have to "use the John" doesn't bother me one bit.

    Our name is way too common. If your last name is common, don't use a common first name. Like "John Smith".
