What would the people say?

I found an old globe in my basement, and decided to bring it to work to place in my office. To transport it, I placed it on the passenger seat of my car.

Then I thought: what if someone saw me driving, sitting next to my globe, and suspected I was using the globe as an imprecise driving map?

I had a similar sensation a few weeks ago, when I walked out of a store with a new printer and a paper shredder. Would onlookers suspect I planned to pit them against one another?

In Greek, we have a common saying (translated to English): “What would the people say?” Episodes such as those listed above give the people something to talk about. I should look for more such opportunities.
