Dude, she’s with the newspaper

I am only posting this because three different people in the past week have said it to me. I just kind of look at them, try not to laugh and scratch my head trying to think of a way to respond without making them look dumb.

In all three cases it was man on the street/pick a random person from a crowd that produced this dialogue:

Me: Hi, I’m Meranda Watling with the Journal & Courier, would you be willing to talk to me about [insert topic of the day]…
Them: Am I going to be on TV?

My standard response, because as everyone in the business knows three makes a trend, is just going to be what I told the man tonight, “Well, sir, it’s a newspaper.” Nothing more.

I mean, what can you say?! In one instance, one of the kid’s friends did the dirty work for me and said, “Dude, she’s with the newspaper. Do you see her hiding a video camera?!”

My thoughts exactly.
