Was not! We have a man in the area who is full of the "family" that settled here. One day on the phone, he said to me, "You do not understand - you are not from here." I shut him up for 5 seconds when I said I DO understand - my family has a town named after them too and proceeded to name the city in MA named for my family.

I believe your guy is going to go to his next stop and among all his stories is how he knows a lady with NASA who is part of the South Afica part of NASA. She stopped him cold - until his next place and then she is part of his arsenal.

It is gratifying when someone can shut them up. We've had that here a few times with engineers who are going off about what they've done, blah blah blah, and DH will pop in with something esoteric in their line and they'll stop and realize that they've been blathering on to the guy who INVENTED what they're using. It's priceless. (And we can even show them the patents if they don't believe it.)
