One of my grad school friends and I are working on academic stuff at the Panera today. An older man just came up to us and was much amused by the fact that we are sitting across from each other, but are both completely focused on our respective laptop screens.
MAN: You two better not be emailing each other. Heh. Heh. Heh.
[Implied: Those internets! They’re the darndest thing]
ME: Don’t worry. We’re not. *goes back to work.*
*Man wanders away*
FRIEND (very small voice): Actually, I am emailing you.
ME: Those internets. They’re the darndest thing.
