Me (from Ucluelet): "Yeah, I'm from Ukee."

Interloper (Vancouver lifetime resident): "Where??"

Me: "Ucluelet."

*Much confusion over pronunciation ensues here*

Interloper: "Where's that???? Timbucktwo??"

Me: "Small town, west coast of the island."

Interloper: "Umm, which island???"

Me: "Vancouver Island."

Interloper: "Is that near Victoria?"

Me: "South of the main part of Pacific Rim National Park. West coast."

Interloper: **Blank stare**

Me: "South of Tofino."

Interloper: "OHHH!, Ucluelet! I know where that is!"
