Not a nerd?
One of my (under 30) employees was doing some video game testing on Friday night. I'm not 100% sure why she volunteered to do it (extra money, most likely), since she seemed so discombobulated by the people she was testing with. She ran back into our office to grab a jacket after she'd started the testing, and started talking about how "nerdy" these guys were.

When I mentioned that I was a nerd too, I got a "No you're not!" She then recited all the tired stereotypes about nerds (stays in the basement, plays video games all day, overweight, male, etc) and kept being incredulous when I mentioned "I play games", "I read comics", etc. I finally asked her if she played any games other than the one she's testing, and she said "Sure! Taboo, Cranium, etc".

ROTFLMAO. I'm planning to use Pandemic in a few weeks to teach some of my employees about how teamwork is necessary to succeed. It'll be interesting to see what she thinks of actual board games, not party games....
