Comments and insights on the name Garrison: | Edit

I have this kid named Garrison in my class. He's really loud and obnoxious and says oof to everything that happens. Whenever someone gets something wrong or literally anything happened, someone could sneeze and this guy would say oof. On top of that this guy has the ugliest hair and doesn't know how to shave so he looks like a dark skinned bob ross accept is just really loud. He also loves to laugh at everything even if it isn't funny, god knows what he is even laughing about. I will say that he probably isn't mean at all but he for sure drives me crazy and I can't stand him. This opinion has been held up by others that also know him, so I know I'm not just holding a grudge. I'm just out here telling the truth about garrison I think the first step is admitting.
