What else would you wear on a birthday?

It's a few decades back, and this vendor tech pilot fish is doing a disk installation for a minicomputer at a trucking company.

"It's about noon, and I notice that there seems to be a large birthday luncheon with music going on in the break room," says fish.

"My pager goes off and I call up one of the other account reps to find out what he needs.

"As I'm sitting there on the phone conversing, a naked lady in high heels walks through the door over to the water fountain to get a drink.

"She turns around and looks at me and says, 'Oh, I'm sorry -- am I offending you?'

"I reply, 'Um...nope?'"
