We've all been through it. We're out at dinner. We're ordering our food. Looking at the menu you notice, Hey, they used Triplex Serif for the design. Cool.

Happens to me just about every day, and I'm used to it. My friends are used to it also. They've accepted the fact that I'm a font nerd and sometimes, SOMETIMES, they even ask me to I.D. one for them.
So, how do you deal with the rolling eyes? And what is your typical response?
