“You look just like…”
I’ve heard Robert Downey Jr. and Donnie Darko, but now it’s “that guy who got shot last night on CSI.”
What do you say to this stuff?
I get this brand of couch potato free-associating day in and day out at the reference desk. And it’s always from someone in sweatpants. Never someone you’d actually want a compliment from.
“Thank you, I’m glad I remind you of a celebrity, even a minor one. My sense of self-worth has sky-rocketed.”
Okay, enough griping.
