What is the best thing about search engines?
Playing private detective so that I don't embarrass myself.
Recently, I was asked by the Mrs. to contact David's stepdad about some car shopping we have on the horizon--David is a player on my older son's basketball team.
Sadly, I have talked to him a couple of times, but do not know his name.
And that is all I had to go on: "David's Stepdad."
Of course, older boy is no help--can't even verify if David's last name is that of his birth father or his stepfather.
Good thing Google allows me to be a personal data miner.
After some initial searching returned little, I took a detour on the way to pick-up the kids at school and wrote down the mysterious stepdad's house number (as I know where the family lives).
With that information, I was able to get an address history through Google, and his mother's name--which eventually allowed me to uncover the identity of stepdad.
All so I can call him by his first name instead of "hello David's stepdad."
I was relieved, but a little exhausted.
Wow, things were so much easier before when I just had to swallow my pride and confess to my lack of attention.
