At least you have the sense to be flattered by it! From someone who works with the public and is very polite, I still have my once in a blue moon days were I just don’t think before I speak.

In the end, you got an even better discount! Win win.

Edited to add, Congrats on the becoming a mom!

snowflake8 :  Working in the Emergency room, you soon learn not to assume anything- age, relationships, nothing.

You were very gracious.

Aw haha! Poor girl. She thought your Father-In-Law was your husband. That’s hilarious, and I feel so bad for her.

snowflake8 :  Yes, that’s what I thought at first and that’s what you wrote. But that is not embarassing. My theory is she freaked when she saw the ring because the guy she thought was your dad is now presumably your husband. She was probably embarrassed because she thought she had just referred to your husband as your dad.

Also congrats on looking like a teen! That’s such a great mistake. I remember when I graduated from college and I’d just say “I just graduated” and people would ask if it was from high school or college. I loved that. 😛

snowflake8 :  Lol. I had that happen once, but it was a little more odd… I was at the car wash getting my SUV cleaned and I had my (then) 3 year old with me. I was 26 at the time. We went inside and I went to pay for the car wash and the attendant (a woman in her 30’s) asked where my parent was. I thought she was joking. She wasn’t. I told her I was married and the child was mine and my age and she basically argued with me and told me was SURE I was 13… it was SO strange!! She then went on and on about how good I will look when I’m in my 30s, so that made me feel a little better haha.

I feel like I get “teen mom” looks, but no one usually says anything, especially not so obvious. This last weekend I was at the mall and went to a store alone while my Darling Husband took our daughter on the carousel and I feel like I was being stared at by everyone (I’m 27 weeks pregnant with baby #2 now) and I can’t help but feel like that’s why. Maybe I’m just crazy.

I love this! And good for you for taking it as a compliment!

When I was pregnant, there were two situations that I found very entertaining. First, a woman in the waiting room at the doctor told me that it was too bad I was pregnant so young, and unmarried to boot (my fingers swelled and I had removed my rings). She, also, turned 7 shades of red when I told her I was 31 and married. And then the hospital wanted me to watch a parenting video before leaving. I am sure my age was on the forms for the nurses, but apparently there was a “rule” that all new mums had to watch the video. As they were preparing the video, a more experienced nurse came in and asked what they were doing. Then she explained that I did not need to watch the video. That nurse later told me that a large percentage of the women giving birth in that hospital were young, single mums. They weren’t used to having 30+, married patients there!

Ha! I’ve had a similar situation. My mom (who also looks very young for her age) was visiting so I brought her with me to my son’s 6 month check up. After the appointment, I checked in with the woman at the front desk to schedule the next appointment. Then she asked, “Do you need a note for school, hon?” I must have given her the blankest stare because I had no idea what she was talking about. I think she realized her mistake just as I was realizing what she was implying because then she stammered, “or… or… work?” 

I just smiled and said I was fine. Pretty hilarious to me since I was 33yo at the time!

I went to drop off my teen daughter for a leadership camp last week and as I was taking a bag over the guy told me I could load my bag then get into one of the other trucks. I told him I wasn’t going, I was dropping off my daughter and he got all confused until I brought her over and was like SHE is the student, I am the mom! Although being mistaken for a high schooler is fine by me!
