    There are 'humanitarians' who want rich people killed. Beef up security at your house.

    I think the official buzzword was 'Exceeded Expectations'. Re. congrats... yeah... as for compensation I think I'll stick with the 'Achieved Expectations' for next year, since the compensation is negligible between the two.

    I be the lowly middle class, far under 100K.

    But yeah... I'm far better off than many.

    A very bizzarre occurrence.

    Scene: weekly dinner with my father and little bro in a London restaurant.

    After we've finished, the manager walks over and shakes my dad's hand, says, "it's me, how are you!? I didn't want to bother you while you were eating! How are you!?"

    My old man stares at him blankly. After an awkward silence "where did I meet you" (along those lines).

    Manager "You don't remember me!?" </Laughing, taking it as a joke> "Ok I'll stand at this angle!" <Turns around> "Ok how about from this angle!?" <Stands directly opposite, leaning forward, smiling>

    Old man: "sorry, I can't think where we met?"

    Manager: Specchless for while. "you're being serious? Do you have kids!?"

    Me: "We are his kids. But then there's the two stepchildren, maybe you mean them? where did you meet him?"

    Manager: "You live near me!"

    Me: "where do you live"

    Manager: "________"

    Old Man: "No, I've never been there"

    Manager: Speechless for a while, then "sorry", walks away, looks back from a distance.

    Later on we chatted to him again. Still not convinced. Thinks he has known him for 8 years. From his way of acting and looking, I can tell he thinks it's a lie and that the old man has been living a secret double life. He even let us have our desert free.

    I have made "doppelganger" mistakes before, but even after such a long convo with someone, to mistake them for someone you have known well for 8 years and still thinks it's the same person? and it's like he is a bum or a drunk, he is a manager of a large restuarant.

    Crazy!

    "No guacamole," I said. That is Spanish for "No guacamole." There is no excuse for fucking up the order.

    Maybe they thought you said "No, guacamole".
