David's House
I was renting a car the other weekend, and was informed that I would need to bring proof of my UK address. I brought a letter from my bank… but as a joke, I also printed out a screen shot from Google Maps (satellite view) of my house in London… It showed the address on the left, and I typed “David’s House” into the search bar before printing it out. I explained to the car rental agent that this was proof that I lived there, because “… when you do a Google Maps search for David’s house, that is what shows up.”

He paused, looked at me, looked back at the printout, and didn’t ask a single question. Not a twitch.  Not a moment of hesitation or any sign or signal that he thought I was an idiot. He completed the reservation like a champ.  I was amazed.
