This thread is spooky.  I don't remember starting this thread.  But I'm glad it exists.  At the same time, I wonder if I drank too much last night.

Relax, oldkid, you're fine.

You didn't start it, I did but with your post from Random Thoughts etc thread because I thought it was a neat idea for a thread. Thanks!

"I'm walking here!" is very useful around my little town with all the crosswalks for pedestrians. Said with anger as Ratso in Midnight Cowboy.

I try to use movie quotes in life but no one ever gets them. I've lived in countries where people are completely movie oblivious (jdc can back me up). Even the educated ones wouldn't get a The Godfather, Casablanca or Die Hard reference. When I worked with Frenchmen they would quote a few movies and TV shoes all the time so I got into that. Most of the time though, I am just the movie nerd of the group.

I was actually told by a superior to stop quoting things once because it made my coworkers uncomfortable. Apparently I was making some of them feel dumb and some others would find me weird.

(This was not SG, although there my boss told me to stop being sarcastic around locals.)

Didn't you ask them to look at your username?
