Odd conversations

Hint: If you make up a nickname for someone but don't tell me, I'm not going to know who you're talking about.

Maintenance guy: Is Mr. Green Jeans around?

Me: I'm sorry, who?

Maintenance guy: You know, the Farmer in the Dell.

Me: I-I-I- who?

Maintenance guy: Tall skinny guy, straw hat.

Me: Oh! Michael! I don't know; it looks like he's out doing one-to-one "how to use the classroom technology" meetings, but we can walk down to his office and check.

A few minutes later, to a coworker:

Me: So, the maintenance guy just came in and asked for Mr. Green Jeans.

Coworker: Michael!

Me: Buh? How did you even get there from here?
