People often ask me questions about high technology. After giving them a detailed description the other person will often say, “That’s exactly what I’m talking about!”

At that point I shrug my shoulders and say, “Never heard of it.”

WARNING: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

When you are parting from someone in a big parking lot, let them get about 20 feet away from you before vigorously and urgently beckoning them to return.

When they walk all the way back to where the two of you were once standing, quietly ask them, “How far would you have gotten if I hadn’t called you back?”

This can often result in dire threats of physical violence, if not the real thing.
