May the 4th be with you…

Many years ago I worked for a software company doing tech support. Like any office, on occasion we would have clients or business partners drop in. On a day when a client stopped in, I just so happened to be wearing a Star Wars t-shirt. It was the first time I had ever worn the shirt.

Quick aside, I -like- the Star Wars movies, but I am in NO WAY a HUGE fan of Star Wars (or Star Trek, for that matter).

As the client was walking through the office, he looks in to my office, sees my shirt and says, “May the force be with you.” It took me a minute to figure out WTF he was even talking about. I then realized I was wearing the SW shirt and chuckled.

From that point forward, whenever that client would call for support, he would reference Star Wars in some way. For example, he'd use “May the force be with you” instead of “Goodbye.” I'd hang up, head over to my buddy's office and we would laugh our fool heads off.

I love a good running joke. This one has been going on for the better part of 15 years now and it still cracks me up.

Happy Star Wars day. May the 4th be with you!
