I was the subject of a scavenger hunt

Today I was one of the subject of a photo scavenger hunt. Some team in my building decided to have a morale event, and one of the things they were instructed to do was to track down the guy with the Segway and get him to let you take a test drive. Five times during a roughly two-hour period a group of people came by, excited to have finally found me, asking for Segway rides. It was rather surreal... I'd never met any of these people before, and only seen about half of them in a building, and I don't know what team they're from or why their manager told them to have their picture taken with me.

After the first couple I put a sign up on my whiteboard that said

Segway rides
Today-only special!

Sadly, there was no supplemental income to be had today.

You'd probably be surprised by the number of people around campus that would recognize you as "The Guy with the Segway"

Well, I'm not the only one. There are several of us. Several!

Yeah, but I think most people recognize you. The other guys really don't stand out as much.
