After her mother and I divorced, my daughter was living with me off and on from her mid-teens to early twenties. One evening we went to the grocery store and she pointed out her best friend's mother, Carol. I had never met the woman but the two girls had become BFF from junior high on and they still are. I recall my daughter conveying over the years that Carol sometimes would engage in unsavory behavior fueled by liquor when not getting along with her husband.

If I can think of something to say or do that I think is funny, I'll say/do it. Sometimes I think of what it will be that is so amusing to me, and wait for the perfect moment to say or do it, perhaps weeks/months later. But in this instance it would be quite spontaneous.

We were down to only needing two items to finish our shopping. One item was at one end of the store, the second at the other end of it. I suggest she get one item and I would get the other then meet at the check out stand. I went after the item near Carol.

The subsequent conversation exchange went something like this:
When our eyes met I looked a bit perplexed then my eyes brightened and a big smile came to my face, "Carol!!!"
She looked befuddled.
"You don't remember me do you?" Then with an evil grin and my best Groucho Marx lear, "But I remember you!"
She was taken a back and perplexed. "It's been a few years and I am not surprised you don't recall as you were rather drunk at the time, but what a night!"
She turned ashen white with mortification, totally confused but believing my schtick. After a few painful seconds for her, I quipped, "Hi, I am Bruce, Marty's dad."
Her expression changed to anger (some people have no sense of humor) "Fuck you!!" She then made a rapid 180 and stormed off.

I got an earful the next day about my humor attempts being unappreciated, uncalled for, obnoxious and embarrassing Like I said, some people have no sense of humor When her BFF came by a week later I got it again about my humor attempts being unappreciated, uncalled for, obnoxious and embarrassing Like I said, some people have no sense of humor

It was worthwhile to me as I still get a grin and giggle fifteen to twenty years later. Oh and I have met Carol and her husband and been to a few parties at there home. I don't bring it up because like I said, some people have no sense of humor
