Had one of those private laughs today during a video meeting. Someone tried to "3-letter-agency experience name drop" on me without knowing my background. Wasn't an ego-measuring thing as much as I think trying to over-sell their own experience.
Anyway, I gave it just long enough as the talk continued before I casually dropped in the. "Yeah, I actually helped develop that program for them back in 19XX..."
The look on their face said enough, and gave me my day's amusement. It's the little things.
