Man Stranger (to Woman Stranger):  Oh wait, her plates are out of state.

Me (realizing they weren’t asking where I was originally from but whether or not I lived in the area):  Oh wait, I do live here!  Do you need help?

Woman Stranger:  We were just wondering if you knew of a good place to get pizza.

Me:  Uh, I’ve heard of a place but I don’t remember what it is called. . . or where it is. . . . . . I’m sorry, I just moved here a month ago. *rushes away from really awkward conversation without saying goodbye*

Woman Stranger:  Well, thanks anyway. . .
