ladyknight1 - I was starting to feel a little mean, or maybe withholding is the better word, because DH runs to the feed machine, deposits his quarters, and hands over a full scoop of drama llama food.
I can't help but wonder if people aren't pulling his leg telling him that he looks like The John Smith
Then I just feel bad because he's thinking they're giving him the "you look great!" when they're really saying "LOL yeah, you're not The John Smith are you, wink wink."
I always feel that someone that oblivious is most likely king of fools -.-
I just do exactly as you did, acknowledge that "yes I know what you're referring to but I won't feed your ego with handclaps that I didn't think to give on my own." Then I try not to talk to that person much because they're annoying to me. That kind of personality who hints around for a compliment are not known to be sharp or take hints themselves.
I wondered the bolded as well. There's a possibility that people know "of" John Smith A but haven't seen him, or haven't seen him in years. That there's a joke at his expense is a distinct possibility.
I don't understand this one. To me reading it sounds like he's just goofing around because they have the same name? What made you think he was looking for a compliment on his physical appearance?
I'm 1000% sure he was fishing for a compliment on his physical appearance. Several things led me to that, it was the way he said, "People ask me if I'm him and he's a (professional athlete,)" then, when I said I knew John Smith A and beandipped, he turned his attention to DH and had a dumb, again expectant, grin that changed when DH complimented his physical appearance. His being pleased with the compliment confirmed, for me, that he was fishing for a physical compliment. FWIW, DH, who doesn't always pick up on subtlety, commented that he was fishing for the compliment before I said anything.
