- Zombie hands: These are the people who are not going to ask, they just have their hands and arms outstretched like lifeless zombies lurching towards you ready to grab your guide dog puppy in training and pat him no matter what the rules are.
- Blurters or Oversharers: They are the ones who are approaching you, but not sure, might turn away, don't want to bother you, but are so drawn to the puppy that they ultimately can't help themselves and finally, just come out and share with you things that may or may not relate to the puppy, but occured to them and they had to share it with you.

Once we got to the game I put his jacket back on as I didn't want people coming up and petting him all night. That's when I had to destroy a soul or two.
I'm thinking: Can I give them the "Look at the coat" look and then I don't have to be the destroyer of souls or am I actually going to have to do it? Will she come back? Perhaps it was a one off.

But no. Here she comes. She rushes up and she's a zombie hand. I take her hand and say in my nicest voice, "Sweetie, I'm so sorry, but did you know, that when this puppy is wearing his blue coat, no one can pet him? He's working?"
And her adorable little face just falls into despair. I am officially the worst person in the world. She says nothing but turns and runs away and never comes back.
