Yesterday, Smallish Midwestern University's Student Center, ID Card Office:
Me: Hi! I need to get an ID card. Can you help me with that?
Student Worker: Sure. (Fumbles through some papers and then looks up at me.) Have you registered for all of your fall semester classes yet?
Me: (smiling) Well, no... but I'll be teaching a few of them.
Student Worker: (embarrassed) Oh, I'm so sorry, Professor!
Even though the student was embarrassed (even after I assured her I was not offended), her mistake (as well as the notation of "Faculty" in big letters on my plastic ID card) made me smile for the rest of the day.
