People Say The Darndest Things....

I was just reading my friend Jen's blog "True Confessions of a Scrapbooker" and she mentioned that a cashier made a comment that was unnecessary and inappropriate. Why are people so stupid and ignorant sometimes??

Her experience brought me back many years to a time (in the 80's mind you) when I had a cute, short haircut. The 'cute' part may be up for debate, but I liked it at the time. My sister Lisa at "Inawannabe.blogspot.com" was with me at a store, where we were waiting to use an ATM that happened to be under repair. (Lisa, who is reading this, is now laughing at this point because she remembers this incident, and enjoys revelling in my pain...) Well, the repair-man looked up to see that there was a line forming behind my sister and me to use the ATM, and so he stood up, looked at us all, pointed towards ME, and said, " You may all line up behind this young man here.." I wanted to die. My sister almost did die in laughter...

Why do people say the stupidest things sometimes???

OMG KRISSA!!!

I had the SAME THING happen to me when I had short hair in the early 90's! It always killed me because I was wearing makeup and big hoop earrings! It completely floored me and made me feel awful!

People are so freaking stupid it just slays me. At least we can rest easy in the fact that WE would never say anything so callous to anyone, anywhere.
