I was at a party, sitting on a couch. A girl I know comes over, sits down and cuddles up to me. After about ten seconds like this, she says "I wish 'Robert' were here". I'm confused, because it's "Robert"'s party. I go "Huh?" and she replies "I wish 'Robert' were right here" and points at me.

"Robert" is my brother.

I wasn't upset, though I think I said something like "that hurts". I've actually been laughing about it ever since, it's too much like a scene out of a bad sitcom.

EDIT: If the quotes don't make it clear, "Robert" is not actually my brother's name.
