    "Oh, you work for the Bangor Fire Department . . . do you know Harold Small? He's my great grandfather who worked there back in the 1960s?"

    Answer: "No. Most everyone who was working in the 1960s is retired or dead."

    or

    "Oh, you work for the Bangor Fire Department . . . do you know William Henforth? I think he is a volunteer firefighter with the East Witopitlock Fire Department."

    Answer: "You do realize that I said I'm with the Bangor Fire Department, right?"


    or

    I get that often if someone sees me in uniform. Oh... my grandson is in the Army/Air Force/Coast Guard/Marines etc at such and such place... you must know him?
    I don't even know all the people in my OWN unit (about 350 people).

    I used to work at MVA (Motor Vehicle Administration) in the title department. Wish I had a nickle for every clown that said."Can you get my tickets fixed?"
    Answer was always" "No, but I can see to it that the police get your records.."
    Now I work for the State Mental Hospital (this was an absolutely logical career move, IMO). The question now is, "Do you know if ____________ was ever there?"
    Answer: "No, but there was a person with the same name and address as you."

    Whas up ??

    Especially when my stoned neighbor calls ME and I answer the phone to hear "Hey, what's up" then silence. Obviously the question he called about is too complicated to ask.

    Best one I ever heard, and I heard it repeatedly as a program salesman at the CNE: "Where is the air show?"

    I love open doors ;)

    About my dogs. I actually gave DH a t shirt with this on it because these same questions come up every 5 minutes or so when we're out in public.

    --------------------------
    Yes, it's a dog. (What is that?)
    Yes, it sheds. (Do they shed?)
    No, it's not a black Saint Bernard. (I had a St Bernard as a kid, black, looked just like that.)
    No, I don't have a saddle for it. (Do you have a saddle?)
    Yes, it's a house dog. (It doesn't live inside does it?)
    No, I don't have a huge house. (Do you have a huge house?)
    Yes, you may pet it. (Can I pet your dog?)
    No, it does not eat that much. (Do they eat a lot?)
    Yes, that's drool. (What's this?)
    -------------------------

    Fun thread!
