Have you ever been gettiered?

Back in grad school in the late 90s I would usually visit Denmark in the summer. One time I came back earlier than expected. My friend Kelly called. "I knew you were back", she said, "I saw Mike with a pack of Danish cigarettes". At the time I wold usually bring back Danish cigarettes for friends. But this time around I didn't. Some other Dane had given them to Mike.

I'm reminded of Williamson's 'Armchair Philosophy, Metaphysical Modality and Counterfactual Thinking', where he reports he gettiered a bunch of Danes.

I think Danes are particularly susceptible to gettiering :-) (or is it gettierization?).
