Captain Ruffles and the Case of the Broken Clock

Once upon a time, when I was much younger and more sensitive to rudeness, a friend of mine named Skip (I'm not changing this one for anonymity for once.) introduced me to Captain Ruffles. Skip said, "Captain Ruffles, do you know GDad?"

Captain Ruffles replied, "Why should I?"

I was pretty mortified. In later years, I've come to the belief that Captain Ruffles actually meant to say something along the lines of, "I'm afraid I don't. Do you, Skip, know of some venue where we would have met before today?" However, I may just be shoring up the ol' self esteem.
