Reality check.

So I drove through Chick-fil-a for lunch today (for food that is totally ok for me to eat on my diet, people) and when I got up to the window, the guy looks at me and says "That'll be 5.45, sir." I automatically handed him the money before I realized he'd called. me. sir. omg. wtf?? As he handed me my bag of (perfectly legal) food, he smiled at me, but didn't correct himself or even show a flicker of "oh shit" in his eyes. So this troubled me. Do I look like a MAN? Has my hair gotten to such a state that it now looks messy and manlike?? I know i'm not wearing makeup today, but geez!! To check on this, I took a pic of myself - in the drivethru - with my new camera phone. You be the judge, I just don't know:



???????

help.

LISA! Oh, my goodness, NO you do not look like a MAN! It's funny, but I think I just read about this on someone else's blog, but I forget who. Maybe Andrew's?

Jimmy and I both have this happen when we answer the phone. People think I'm the man, and vice versa for him. It bothers him way worse than it does me, but it still irritates me.

You are not manlike. I promise!

OK, you do NOT look like a man. But this was pretty funny... AND it makes me think of something: Would it be worse to be mistaken for a man or a lesbian? hmmm...

OMG -- so now you're saying I look like a Lesbian????

;)

Lisa, you do not look like a dude. My guess is that the guy was embarrassed and was trying to pretend that he hadn't said anything. That's what I would do; play it off.

I would much rather look like a les than a man. There are plenty of cute lesbians, and not just the lipstick kind.

NO, you don't look like a man! But OMG this blog (like many of them) CRACKED me up!

Man, are you serious? Dude, you SO do not look like one.

You pass quite well for a woman!

He was probably just stoned, don't worry about it.

What does a lesbian look like?

Excellent point, Margaret :)

I LOVE this blog and I LOVE that you posted a picture of yourself in the drive-thru! That picture looks like a lovely, tousled LISA. What makes me laugh most of all is that you are the most (ok, somewhat stereotypically) FEMININE girly-girls of all the girls I know. No camping, no sweating, no lifting heavy things. Lipstick, make-up bubble-bath. Good entry. Yes siree, good entry. ;)

Okay, sorry to jump in so late, but let me add my voice to the chorus.
You don't EVEN look like a man!!!!

Now Ann Coulter...that's manly-looking for you.

Incidentally, I have also noticed that some people who didn't have English as a first language can sometimes have trouble with masculine and feminine pronouns and titles...
