Turned out that was a topic I needn't have concerned myself with...he apparently saw me as a "young lady" as well. (For the record, I'm not young. But he was very nice to say it!) When I checked out, he sang out "Thank you, young lady!" My reply was "You're welcome, sir, and have a nice day." "Thank you, Ma'am - you too." All within earshot of the trainer, whom I had noticed was lurking nearby!
Next, I stopped in at my favorite auto parts store to pick up some oil for my car in preparation for the upcoming antique car outing. They are always nice there. Turns out they had new people on staff, and a lot more customers than usual were out and about doing car things. Not only was it horrendously busy, but the customers were all male (or so they thought), and they were addressing everyone as "Sir." Regardless of a purse, long nails, long hair, arched eyebrows, feminine outfits and other female cues... Maybe it was training day there, too? If so, they didn't get high marks...
Fortunately, this picture says it all...Spring has finally arrived!
Trees are blooming as the antique car is all cleaned up and ready to go!
Enjoy your spring, ladies!
More later...as time permits.
