I was wearing a Cardinals hat in Midwestern City X at a mall one time. An older guy asked me if I was from St. Louis. I explained that no, I just went to law school there, I'm actually from Illinois and now lived in City X. The man ignored what I said, and was practically foaming at the mouth for me to stop talking. As soon as I did, he asked me, "So what high school did you go to?" As in, what St. Louis high school did I go to. He then talked my ear off about St. Louis and his high school.
It's that bad.
