I was at Fry’s Electronics buying a TV and cable modem and the cashier was a young guy. He saw my name and said, “Are you a Chargers Fan?” I told him, not really, that I just moved here from Chicago. I asked him why, and he said, “Because you’re name is the same name as the best Charger player!!!” with tons of enthusiasm.
I told him that not only is my name the same as Shawne Merriman (Defensive End), but that my wife’s name is the exact same, just with one more “e”. His response, “OH MY GOD!!! That is so, so amazing!” While he said this, he was bringing his arms together kind of like the Hulk Hogan flex pose.
And then he told me that my credit card company froze my card. Turns out someone in London was trying to charge a bunch of money to my card.
