well i was minding my own business here at work, and then my lunch hour came and i needed to swing by the post office to mail something out. my work is close to a p.o. station so i figured i'd walk over and mail my things, i mean why be lazy and drive since its nice outside and i could use the excersies. as i was walking i saw 2 moms and their babies in strollers...kinda made me bummy but it was ok, i didn't know them or have to talk to them. then i get to the post office and stand in this long line but finally make my way to the counter. i place my box on the counter and notice starwars stamps... ooo.. i think to myself my hubby loves starwars. so i decided to buy them. i ask for the stamps and the clerk replies with "oh you like starwars", i explain that i'm buying them for my husband cause he's love em and the lady in line behind me; i don't even know this lady says" oooo, give em to him for fathers day, that would be something my husband would love". the clerk overheard and said the same damn thing, "oh yea, save em for fathers day, you could buy a nice frame and all, yada yada yada". ok so do people just assume you kids, since you're married. it was kinda like a hard smack in the face and though i didn't know this lady i really wanted to say something but i turned and said, sure sure and then walked away. so have any of you had rediculous comments like? from complete stangers none the less?
