About Mo


My name is Michael Overstreet, however, no one calls me Michael, it’s either Mike or “Mo”. The “Mo” was born in 1973 when I went to work for Simplimatic Engineering Co. in Lynchburg, VA. My area was right in front of the manager’s office door. There were three Michael’s in the main office area. So each time the boss “needed” to yell for or at one of the Michaels, he would rush out of his office, directly at ME and yell Michael or Mike. Being the new guy, I would freak. So, to eliminate the confusion, one became Michael, one became Mike and I took my initials as my nickname (alias) “Mo”. Of course, the boss from that point on “NEVER” rushed out of his office, directly at ME and yelled Mo …. noooooo.
