I was minding my own business at a store today when a lady came up and greeted me Unfortunately the name she used wasn’t mine. She was convinced that I was her daughter’s algebra teacher. I tried to convince her that I wasn’t but she wasn’t buying it. I wanted to ask her if she didn’t think that I would know if I was her kid’s teacher. Besides if I was, shouldn’t I be in school at 1:00 in the afternoon?
Finally she accepted that I wasn’t who she thought I was. Then she was suspicious. “Well, how do I know you?” I admitted that I was a vet. She pointed at me and said triumphantly, “Yes, you’re my dog’s vet! I need to make an appointment. He has a rash and I’ve been using medicine that you gave me two years ago which is expired and it isn’t working. I probably need new. You think I should bring him in?”
Uh, yes? She seemed satisfied with that. I warned the staff that a confused lady may be calling to make an appointment for a skin problem. Either that or she’d be bringing in the kid for algebra help.
Don’t you just want to strangle people who think they know you better then you know yourself! Kinda wonder how self-centred they are to think they’re closer to the situation than you are….
