I have a friend who many times over the years has done this thing.
In conversation I tell him some interesting fact that I have come across and he will, at most, respond minimally but usually not at all.
Then, a few days later, in a group of people he will present the same fact but always, always, attribute it to "the paper" or "the news" but never, never, to me.
I've never been quite sure how to interpret this.
Does he truly not remember that I was the source?
Does he consciously just not want to give me credit?
Does he unconsciously think that I could not possibly be the origin of useful information?
Does he actually like me?
