You just never know where PLEBA will turn up...

OK, so Kelly & I are in Sam's Club yesterday afternoon, shopping. We stop our cart in one of the aisles & are just stepping over to pick up a floor steamer when a gentleman & his wife come up in the aisle behind us, in mid-conversation. We hear the man say something to his wife about not trusting floor steamers on laminate floors. Kelly & I haven't used anything but a Shark floor steamer on our floors since we installed them last year & have been thrilled with the results, so we struck up a conversation with the couple to give them our personal experience endorsement of the steamer.

Turns out the guy installs laminate & hard wood floors, along with ceramic tile. It just so happens that Kelly & I have a couple of tile projects we want done at our house & that's one thing that we're willing to pay a professional to do for us, so I asked the guy if he had a card. He didn't so I pull a pen & notepad out of my purse & start taking his information. I get his cell # written down & ask him his name. "Chris", he tells me. "Chris Pleba." He starts spelling it, too: "P - L - E.." And I finish it for him with this big, goofy grin on my face: "B - A, right?" He says, "Yeah" and looks at me kind of strange, because by now I'm laughing.

I apologized & just briefly explained that a really active group on a website that I belonged to called themselves PLEBA & that I was just amused to meet someone with that exact last name. I thought it best not to elaborate any further than that.

Anyway, I was just thinking about the thread we had in PLEBA a while back detailing our abilities to make U2 references out of almost anything we came across & thought it was great that I should run into someone so randomly whose last name is a pretty direct reference, at least to Interference.

That's exactly what I told Mr. Blu. We want tile work done, here's a tile guy whose last name ties into Interference. I can't see why we'd take estimates from anyone else!

That is funny! I'd have been laughing so hard and been so embarrassed for laughing. Not much of a reference but there's a bit in our school book called Interference. I was like "whoah! No way!" and my friend was like "what? It's just a school book." Anyway, whatever, that's a cool story!
