How's that for revenge.

This is the story of how  JD WETHERSPOON - The biggest chain of pubs in England, got its name. This chain has over a thousand outlets all over England, and had revenues of over fourteen hundred million pounds last year. (They also operate the Lloyd's number one brand, and own a few hotels)

Now, this business giant is not named after the owner, his name is Tim Martin. He named the company after his high school teacher - JD Wetherspoon. 

He did this because his teacher had once humiliated him in front of his classmates, and had told his parents that Tim would never amount to anything.

Now, Tim knew that if he put his own name on his pubs, his teacher would never notice. After all, 'Martin' could be anyone. 

But no one can resist looking at their own name. 

So he named the pubs 'JD Wetherspoon'

And now every time his teacher passes his own name, he knows that it was put there by a boy he'd said would never amount to anything.
