There were tacit rules with these people, and all people like them I later met: You weren’t supposed to ask basic questions. “What do you do?” “Where are you from?” … Not even, “What is your name?” You pretended you knew, or didn’t need to know. Asking an obvious question, even if there were no obvious answer, was a way of indicating to them that they should jettison you as soon as they could.
