Self III

Continuing the theme of Self II:

Yesterday, as I left my building, I ran into an uniformed NY sanitation worker who was rifling through the garbage from my building. I asked him, "Is something wrong?"  He looks up from the black garbage and asks, "Are you the Super?". This is the most natural mapping of (Me -> Role) among strangers in  Tribeca. And when I say, No, he asks incredulously, "Do you live here?". And I was wearing my best clothes. :)

Could be sanitation worker, could be intelligence gatherer for one of a myriad of agencies.
Are you working on anything lucrative? Intel is very lucrative, even if they just use it to day trade.
