So… yesterday, I went to the mall to check off some gift buying for the plethora of wedding/baby showers coming my way in the next few months. I ended up at Macy’s because it was one stop shop for the most part. So, I go to make my purchase of the precious lil baby things…and the lady at the counter…decided to give me the grand “when are you having kids” inquisition…
Cashier: Awww, congratulations on the baby!
me: no…its not for me…they’re gifts
Cashier: do you have baby already?
Cashier: why you no have baby?
me: were just not there yet…
Cashier: babies bring such happiness, you no want happiness?
me: no its not that, were just…
(cuts me off)
Cashier: aww thats ok, maybe soon….are you married?
Cashier; thats good thats ok, step 1 to baby outta the way… get the husband, then the baby…otherwise…not good …very not good…
awkward silence while she rings me up
Cashier: hopefully we see you back here soon to buy for yourself!
me: yea, thanks.
(scurry away quickly)
GET OUTTA MY BIZNASS WOMAN!
Next time, I’m buying online. The online confirmation emails don’t make me feel bad about my non-babyness.
