A young kid was in an airport with his family traveling on vacation.
Their flight will not arrive for a few hours, so the kid gets permission from their parents to do a little exploring.
But after a quick 20 minutes or so, they saw all that there was to see, so they started to make their way back to the waiting area…
...when they suddenly heard a commotion.
A large group of screaming young men and women form themselves into a crowd around one central figure:
...one of the hottest and most famous pop stars of the generation.
The pop star stopped to work over the crowd; a couple interviews with the paparazzi and autograph signing, along with taking a few selfies with their fans.
The kid knew of the celebrity, and they were even in close proximity to get an autograph if they so wanted…
…but they just did not want to do that.
After a while, the crowd died down and they noticed the kid standing just to the side, conspicuously out of the way.
Curious about their “interestedness” they went over to them.
“I’m surprised, I’ve given an autograph to every single kid in here but you; you don’t like me?”
“Oh it’s not that, I just didn’t want to bother you.”
The pop star promptly gave the kid his autograph for his trouble.
