I'll see your wine humility and raise you with wine-store humiliation.
Was hanging out with some buddies in Princeton last night and we were off to a BYOB Indian place. I'd scoped out a wine store in town so we stopped by there. One friend starts asking the guy who works there what red wine pairs well with Indian food. The clerk and I blurt out something about rieslings simultaneously. When my friend decides to buy a nice rosé, the other friend shouts, "Haha, what're you buying, like white zinfandel?"
To top it off, the Indian food was miserable.
