Passing Strangers in a Train Station

Overheard at Union Station, Washington, D.C. this past week:

Woman: Corey! Hi. You don't know me, but your dad Carey was my boss at ____ ... years ago.

Man: Really? Wow!

Woman: Yup. In fact, I knew your mom, too. I was at your house in ____ ... way back when.

Man: Wow.

Woman: Sometimes, when I see you on television and hear your laugh, it makes me think of your dad. You know, you have the exact same laugh.

Man: That's so nice of you to say. I'm really touched. You just made my day.
