>Howard took some more calls and ended up going off on Ron about the clothes. He said he really has to dress better. He doesn’t want people to think he’s him wearing that stuff. Howard said this is fucking him up in the head because he meets people that know him and he’s not recognizing them so they think that he doesn’t remember them. Ron said that he ran into Bryant Gumble in a supermarket and he did tell him that he wasn’t Howard after he said he didn’t recognize him. Ron said that Bryant came up to him and said hi like he recognized him and he just said he forgot his name. Howard sounded floored by that. He said that he has to tell these people he’s not Howard Stern. Howard said if a strange man comes up to him and says hi he should tell them that he’s not Howard Stern. Ron said that’s not the first thing that comes to mind. Howard said it’s no wonder Bryant is blowing him off. He said he snubbed a guy he knows. He said he really doesn’t like this and it’s creeping him out.
