There was a story my dad told about when he was in the army, shortly after he joined, when he was a lowly private. He suddenly found himself being treated very well, for no apparent reason. He later realized that there was a general with the same first and last name as him, and people assumed he was a relative of the general. So it helps to share a name with someone famous.

If I messed up anything in that story, let me know, Mom. :)
