I didn't say "Is it ok if she's Mexican and wears a baseball cap?" to the woman who came into the shop today to ask "Isn't there someone here who is closer to my age? I need an opinion." I also did not say "I have many opinions, one being that you are an ass-faced donkey whore," or "She is out on vacation right now, but you are welcome to blow a lobster," or "You look like you're in your late 40s. I'm closer to your age than Blanche buttfucking Devereaux," or "Sure I'll go get her" and duck behind the counter only to hobble back into the shop all haggafied, with a scarf wrapped around my head, dark glasses and a walking cane.
Instead I politely went to get the manager who in her noble aged wisdom happily and proudly gave her godlike opinion on violets for a tea party, as I glowered in the back room. This kill them with kindness biz can suck my velvet balls. D'nay tells me I should've told the lady "I'm a mother!" like what the fuck would that do? People hate kids as much as Nazis nowadays. Everything always goes back to if I were a dolphin I wouldn't have these problems.

You know, you're grumpy, but someday you're gonna get godlike opinions on tea party violets yourself AND THIS WILL ALL MAKE SENSE.

Oh, Stacie. You're too young to understand adult situations like tea parties.

BTW, I read this article on child-hating the other day that talked about how weird it is that it's socially acceptable to openly hate children. It's really true--nobody blinks an eye when someone states "I don't like children." What other group could you say that about in any company and not fear criticism?

I used to work at an appliance repair place and I would sometimes get people asking "if there was a man they could talk to". It doesn't take a man to tell you that your fucking rice cooker is broken because you tried to make soup in it.

hay btw, you are supremely qualified to help me assemble my krazy kristmas kreche -- I was at Ayers Variety yesterday and saw all these blank nativity manger things, like dollhouses waiting to be filled. I want to style one up and photograph it for our full-length xmas record package (which will probably be for next year, not this Christmas).

Couldn't you just look at her in utter confusion and say "I'm sorry? I'm 32 [or whatever the real number is] -- how old are YOU?"

Your dolphin comment has me laughing through my burning, sick stomach this afternoon. ;) I think we both struggle with looking much younger than we actually are. For awhile, no one at my new job believed that I was a mother, and when they found out that my child is 10, they thought I was lying. It's hard to be taken seriously sometimes.

You should keep a big fat seventy-pound trilobite fossil under the counter for the next time this happens, and then wordlessly, silently, heave it up onto the counter, rotate it slightly so that it might see her better, and then step back and say helpfully, "Sorry, this is the oldest one we have."

You have the sort of LJ that almost makes me want to write in mine again, so that I'd have any sort of right to Friend you. But I did anyhow. I mostly blather in Drew's now, and he's quite patient about it, considering. That we don't know each other. And stuff.

So, hullo. Peer at my old entries and see if you judge me worthy. Also, I am on flickr, same name, less lack of initiative.
