repetitive

Recently, we hosted a candidate for a visiting position. I went to pick up this older gentleman from his lunch with students. Because he was still talking to one of them, I sat down and waited, and then introduced myself as, "Hi Dr. X, I'm Me", thinking, perhaps stupidly, that he had been told that someone with my name would be meeting him at this time.

His response? "Are you a major?"
