LApple has a funny story about celebrity encounters at LA-area Apple stores. I’m going to skip right over the Melanie Griffith portion and go directly to the geekery:

[A] sales associate said he got a tongue lashing from LeVar Burton associate…said he made the mistake of asking Burton for some ID when the actor was making a big credit card purchase. The associate said he recognized Burton, but wanted to reassure him he was doing a thorough job of checking credentials.

Burton “began shouting at me to ask anyone in the store who he was, all the while telling me that he left his ID in the car and he didn’t want to have to go get it,” the associate said. “I finally caved in, only because I could see a vein pulsating in his forehead and I didn’t want to be the one responsible for causing the blind dude from Star Trek to have a stroke.”

WTF, Mr. La Forge? You know I got mad love for you, but it isn’t hard to carry your frigging license with you! Be happy he didn’t call you Toby (rimshot).
