Yes, twice in Trinidad where I worked from time to time. In each case I was using a sixties SWC, and the question was not marked with envy, just mere curiosity. I was pleased with that because it marked a certain non-consumer mindset of the natives who made the comment as a mere conversational point and were more interested in outcomes.

In the USA I can't even hear such questions. I went very deaf a few years ago. It's a Godsend.
