That happened to me once, except the reverse.

MY dad's friend was supposed to pick me up when I was in elementary school and I refused to go because I didn't know who he was and I caused a big scene until my brother came and was like "you know him you big dingus"

turned out I did know him I just didn't remember.

My Mom was busy doing something one day, so my Grandfather said he would go get us. I threw a hissy fit (just being a brat) in the school parking lot because he didn't know the word. He finally leaned down and whispered "Get in the f'n car NOW!"

He's 80 now and I still tease him about how awful he was to yell at a scared kid
