I would thank the worker for the kind comments and move on with my day.
We can constantly run into workers are can be very ignorant and obviosly want nothing to do with the job they are working.
This worker seemed to be making an effort to be polite however. The boy/girl mix up is deffinately something to correct, however with the mix up on
eye color that is something I would probably shrug off.
I'd smile and say you have nice Green eyes (When they have blue or brown, etc.,... you get the point) and see what they do. As for the sex issue, you
could do the same. You have such pretty eyes and eyelashes, too bad you're a guy or something
If anything, it's something to laugh about. Who cares, really.
I had the exact same problem. My daughters hair grew in very slowly and until she was 3 or 4, everyone thought she was a boy. I could've put her in
the frilliest dress and they would've still asked me how old my little boy was.
I just politely corrected them and said she was a girl.
It happens man. Its still well intended. I think with all 3 of my boys pretty much that has happened at least once or more with each. My 2nd one had
curly hair and women thought he was a girl since he had so many little curly-locks. You handled it about right.
They don't mean it as an insult.
Oh, I just get annoyed fairly easily, because my mindset is usually, "Hey, now I know this--why don't you get it?" I don't go off on people, I
just mentally roll my eyes. I think I just need to get off my high horse at times.
For the record, my son's hair is straight and I always keep it short.
But this woman just never seemed to be with it, and I was just wondering what her problem was.
I would have ripped off a glove and slapped her smartly across each cheek, then thrown one at her feet and said in a loud and authoritative voice that
she was a woman without honor, and that if she disagreed then she could defend her honor in the parking lot at dawn three days hence.
Well, that's what you could do if I were emperor. However, in this particular time-stream, your response was probably more politic.
i had a friend who would dress their daughter up in real unisex clothing and if some one said something refering to its gender ie what pretty hair
your girl has or isn't he handsome...she wouldn't always corect them so ppl had a fifty % chance of acculy knowing what the child was lol you should
