When I was young, I once worked as a hostess at a newly opened Kona Grill. It was one of 6 jobs I held and I did not have time to watch TV or follow any sports.
Once a really big guy came in as I was running the front desk, to pick up his carry-out order.
I looked up and asked what his name was. He looked down at me with a blank stare and said nothing. I asked again… nothing.
“Sir, I need a name for your order please.”
Blank stare in return.
By then my manager had noticed him and ran over – “Mr. Gonzalez! So great to see you! How can we help you?!”
Long story short it was Tony Gonzalez, an NFL star. And he refused to give me his name because he couldn’t believe I didn’t know who he was.
