Today I’m at the gas station to get a pack of smokes and while in line someone called my name. I looked up and the guy is looking at me. He said you know who I am right? I said yeah? I didn’t have the slightest clue. It was kind of an awkward exchange. I stood there kind of dumbfounded so he just turned around and walked away. The girl behind the counter was giggling. After he walked away I felt kind of horrible for not knowing him. When I was in high school everyone new who I was. I was kinda notorious and had a bad reputation. I still felt bad for not knowing him. I’m 41 years and I don’t remember everyone I went to school with. I’ve had a couple encounters like this. I still live in the neighborhood I grew up in. It’s a big city and most people moved away from here.
Ever ran into someone and not known who they are?
