Today, I had a very revealing trip to the grocery store. See if you can guess why after you read this.
"Are you finding everything alright, ma'am?"
"Let me get that for you, ma'am."
"Ma'am? Would you like paper or plastic?"
"You saved $3.56 today, ma'am."
Still wondering? Can't figure it out? Everything sounds pretty expected for the grocery store, right? WRONG! Ma'am? MA'AM?! Seriously? Someone please tell me when I crossed over into ma'am territory. I thought that word was reserved for women whose hips and thighs are evidence of the 5 kids they have at home; women who shop at Christopher Banks and Chicos; women who make sure they take a multivitamin every morning because they're worried about osteoporosis. to Am I already there? Is that who I am in the general public's eye? Please- someone, anyone- say it's not so!
