Most celebrities dream about living under the radar. For example, being able to sit down at a coffee shop and not having to sign twenty-seven paper cups. You know, the little things. The song The Way I Am by Eminem paints quite the lyrical picture of the subject.

But skating legend Tony Hawk doesn't have this problem. People recognize him relatively rarely; Hawk can even have conversations with random folks he bumps into like a regular human being. The best part is that he enjoys these moments so much, he even tweets about them in a hilariously down-to-earth kind of way.

Scroll down to check out what I mean and fire up our earlier articles on the topic here and here when you're done!

Yup, as someone who worked behind the counter, that kind of situation is pretty normal.

The correct response to "you've gotten older" is "It beats the alternative."

"Who are you? My son is a big fan of your work, and we used to watch videos of you when he was a kid, but I still have no idea who you are, Mr. Tony Hawk, famous pro-skateboarder."

I like that Hawk is wearing a Van's shirt, since it's a competitor with his shoe line.
