She said "Oh, you might know my Brothers,they used to race too".
She mentioned the names,and yes ,I knew them very well.
THEN I remembered HER!
I asked "Do you remember me?"
She says "No"
I say "That's good,that means I'll get up after the surgery is done"
She asked "Why is that?"
I told her"Because when you were a little girl,we gave you SUCH a bad time when you were hanging out in your brothers garage with us,and we did all sorts of cruel jokes to you."
She thought a while as she got the IV into me,then,smiling at me,she said "Now I remember you,You were so bad in those days,but you always bought me ice cream at the racetrack and I really looked forward to that on race days!

I woke up in recovery alive and intact,she was there and we laughed about the old days!


I'm at a UPS satellite store, not a main branch by the way, and the girl behind the counter starts giving me a hard time about not being able to use a company account number for mailing out stuff from her office's location, but at first, she does it in generic kind of way. After a couple verbal interactions, I'm thinking she's had a bad day, so at the best of my utmost ability, I placate her acerbic tone with couple humorous colloquialisms based on the situation, and then offer several choices as possible solutions.

I realize she ain't buying it, and asked her what she would suggest. OUCH! Then starts a 1 minute diatribe of policy and how cooperate people think accounts are so important to UPS. I finely interrupt her somewhere in the middle of of it all, and just out and ask, "What the **** is your problem?!?!?! Do I know you?!? Do you think you know me? Has my company done anything to get you into trouble?!? Why are you so ******* temperamental?!?" She laughs and says, "Yeah, I knew I recognized you, your name's *****, and you dated my Mom, *******, back in the **'s." What the heck!?! She was right.... Oops, small world...

Ended up getting the thing shipped for free and an old life chapter closed.
