That's true ... my hubby has a friend from Scotland named Allison.
But I can almost guaran-durn-tee you that if you doubted he is who he says
he is, he'll pull out some other kind of identification as proof. And if you
had told me my name is a man's name (which, it actually is - at least the
nickname is), then you can be durn sure *I* would have pulled out some form
of ID to prove I am who I say I am, man's nickname or not. :)
IOW, you did good! :)
And FTR, whenever *anyone* has asked me for proof regarding my identity, I
provide it *gladly* ... it's for MY protection more than anyone else's. And
having someone question my identity only makes me feel safe and secure. :)

I think you did just fine. The fact that you quickly steered the
conversation away, without further comment, said it all.
On a related note: While waitressing at a fancy Marina del Rey, CA
restaurant (more years ago than I care to admit), I got to wait on a
aroundof guys like that. They were from out of town and when I was coming
noose.to see if they wanted another round of drinks, they made a really rude
comment about a nice couple sitting across the room. Something like they
didn't serve those kinds where they came from and some reference to a
noNuff said? Boy was I mad! Well, when I came back to bring them their
"round", I simply handed them their totalled check for their first round,
wastip, and asked them to sign and leave. Stunned, they asked what they had
done. I leaned in real close, with all my tall blonde charm (I said it
leave."LONG ago!), and simply said, as quietly and sweetly as possible "This is
California honey, and we don't serve your kind in here. Now please
notThe looks of shock were worth it. Of course, as just a "waitress", I did
uphave the authority to boot someone, but my bartender told me he'd back me
if came back to me. Bad folks are bad folks and they always get what's
coming to them.
That's better than my story. I was serving a male customer who gave
me a woman's card to pay. Now, he told me he knew the PIN code. But
that wasn't the point, it wasn't his card. Period. I mean, now that
I study law I really know what fraud is, and if you hand me a card
that isn't yours, you can have it back but you can't pay with it. So.
Then he said that Alison is a man's name in Scotland. Because I'm a
dumb foreigner who will believe everything obviously.
So I leaned in really close and said, "And, are you MRS Alison
He paid with cash.
