I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Lincoln who?

Well, last night was the season premier of The Walking Dead.  Quite a few people watch it.  I don't.  I don't really watch a lot of serialized television.  I did watch 3 episodes of Stranger Things.  Perhaps if these shows weren't serialized, didn't have a 'season finale' or a 'season premier.'  Prioritizing a fictional show is something I don't understand.  Some people, however, need to be able to have that 'water cooler' conversation.  One of my cashiers is like that, and last night she just needed to leave early enough to watch the 'season premier.'  I told her that there was speculation that Lincoln might be killed, and she asked "Lincoln who?  I don't know a Lincoln." she said,  "is he the gay one?"  So I said I didn't know if Lincoln was gay or not (don't think so), and she once again asserted that she didn't know who Lincoln was.

Andrew Lincoln - the actor

Which is funny since she knows the characters, but not the actors playing those characters, you know?  So I pulled out my handy dandy phone and photo searched Andrew Lincoln.  This is the one I picked to show her.

Andrew Lincoln as Rick Gates
And she looked at it for... oh, let's say 15 seconds before looking at me in disbelief and saying "that's not Lincoln, that's Rick."
