I was walking down the street this morning, burning a piece of paper with some old passwords on it, and holding the box of matches I had used to light it. A woman saw me, and said "Hi. Gimme a match?" I got out a match and prepared to light it for her. Before I could strike flame, the woman leaned over to my burning password paper and lit a cigarette from it, then said "Thank you."

There I was, standing on the street, thinking "Smoking's bad, mm-kay," and wondering why she asked for a match when she wanted a light (yes, I know, I cannot turn off being an editor), and thinking this was probably actually not the first time someone's lit a cigarette from a burning password, but it's still unusual.
