I was called to the lobby. As I approached I asked the only person there, a man, if he was the gentleman I was supposed to talk with. He said “yes sir” and stuck out his hand to shake my hand. I shook his hand. I waited a beat for him to acknowledge I am not a sir.
He did not.
I said “I’m a ma’am”
He said “oh, okay”
Not the first time. Won’t be the last.
Especially the first day after a new haircut.
No offense taken. I’m not surprised by it any more. Momentarily startled maybe…..I mean….some things are obvious……
