Laughing out loud
Couple of days ago, I was searching my bookmarks for a website with protocols that was run by a former colleague of mine from Michigan. Originally, his website was hosted by the MSU servers, but I shortly realized that my browser was redirected to another website: his first name dot com. He posted some details of his life that was pretty stormy since we met and later departed, so it felt right to write him a short e-mail. He replied: "To be honest, I can't remember you." I thought he was joking, because we worked in the same lab for about seven months, but as it turned out he wasn't. I find it extremely funny and it also illustrates the shallowness of the US social skills that I am so happy to leave behind.
