why do grocery stores insist on hiring idiots?
help me out here. I need to figure out how to respond to all these jackasses.
because it happened again, yesterday.
"awwwwww. she is so cute! how old?" asks the 17 year old girl at the register.
"thank you! she's 7 months old. and thanks for acknowledging that she's a girl. we get a lot of "boy" comments."
"are you kidding?! how could anyone think she's a boy?"
I'm psyched. finally! this might be my first normal conversation with a cashier.
"is she yours?" like that is a reasonable question.
geeez, people! I know I'm a geriatric mother with an asian inspired baby, but... come on!
in hindsight, I should have said - (I'm not terribly quick on my feet.)
"are THOSE yours?" pointing to her giant boobs spilling out of her skin tight, belly baring, and soooo inappropriate for the workplace tank top.
"and it's 36 friggin' degrees outside fool!"
