Take my identity, please

So I'm down at the music store, buying yet another cable. Those 3.5mm connectors I've been using all these years? Kid stuff. Real men and women use quarter-inch and XLR connectors, and now that I'm set up with a Telos One and a mixer, I'm taking my first tentative steps into the world of grown-up audio.

Anyway, the credit card I fish out of my wallet is due to expire, so I switch to the new one and mention that I should remember to shred the old one. The music-store guy cracks me up with this line: "Identity theft? They can have mine. I hope they make out better with it than I did."
