The realisation that your personal identity may have been subsumed by your professional life...

When my neighbour P enquires whether I’ve been graffitifying the pavement outside his house, my first impulse is to explain that it is the common shorthand for lighting column and that it is a setting-out marking relating to the recent new street lighting on the close.

It takes several minutes for the penny to drop as to why P was suggesting that I specifically, might be responsible for this tag.
