- Personal experiences with the name Jim: | Edit
I dated a guy named JIm and he told all of his students about us dating. Big mistake. Over the summer we broke up and all of his students asked him about me and he had to break it to them that we had broke up.
Im in one of JIm's classes and once I asked him if I could go to the bathroom and he said "Yeah class ends in 10 minutes :)" and I said out loud that he probably hates me and he said from across the room, "I dont hate you, I just wish you would do something in my class for once". I still haven't recovered. I hope he pays my medical bills.
