When I first got to Texas, I took a job as a cashier at a car wash.
It was in the gucci area, so a lot of people with moola came around regularly. A lot of them had house accounts, so they would just have their services put on their tab.
One day a co-worker said "Oh, there's Earl Campbell" I looked at him and had no idea who he was. Frankly I thought he looked like a bum. He was unshaven with a grizzly gray fuzz on his face, wore sloppy clothes, and didn't look that clean. I thought he was really ugly. He looked like he was hung over and/or an alcoholic.
Later, I was at the grocery store and saw "Earl Campbell Sausage" and thought, "Ew, that's gross. So he's some guy who owns a sausage company. Jeez, he sure looks a lot better on that package than he does in person." I wouldn't eat sausage if you paid me, in general.
So even later, while I was again at work, a woman came up with her ticket and said, "I'm Mrs. Earl Campbell, please put this on our account"
I thought I was being really friendly (and generous) when I said "Oh, you're husband's Earl Campbell. I....um.....really like his sausage."
For the life of me I didn't know why she gave me such a strange look. Didn't even thank me. What a bitch.
