● If someone tells you that they’ve just changed jobs.

● While you’re pouring yourself a drink.

● If someone tells you that they play in a band.

● While you’re helping someone choose the music to put on.

● If someone asks you where the kitchen is.

● While you’re waiting in a queue to go to the bathroom.

● If someone tells you that they’ve just been to the Caribbean.
