OK Gus

Today, the maintenance man for my building fixed my leaky sink. As he headed out the door, I said, "Thanks, Gus!" He turned around and said matter-of-factly, "My name is Eli." I've been addressing him as "Gus" for the past year and a half. FML

Why didn't he correct you the very first time you got it wrong?

Start crying and say your beloved uncle who died was named Gus and he reminds you a lot of him. He'll fell so sorry for you, he'll forget you're a dolt.

I guess you always thought he looked more like a Gus than an Eli

I know it's surprising, but not Every maintenance guy is named Gus. You know how stereotypes work, there are always exceptions to the rule.

I had a friend who's name was William but I always forgot and called him Ben because to me he looked like a Ben so one day I finally explained it to him and he admitted he actually liked it. From then on his name was Ben for me.

Don't worry, I work with thousands of stormtroopers everyday for years, and I still don't know their names. Not even the one that makes my coffee.
