Installation Guy: I know you from somewhere.
Me: [blank stare]
IG: Seriously. How do I know you?
Me: Well . . . we had some trouble with our connection when we first moved in. Did you come out to work on it then?
IG: No. I've never been to this house before. But I know I know you.
a few minutes later
IG: What's your job?
Me: Um, I teach ballet.
IG: I knew I'd seen you before! You're my daughter's teacher!
In all truth, if I'd know that a student's dad was going to be in my house I would have made an effort to clean it first. But he's a cool guy and professional so I'm sure he didn't bother judging my housekeeping skills. And I have an a super-fast connection now.
I love living in the future!
