One of us should be offended.
My dad and I went to eat lunch together today-just the two of us (mom was baby sitting my brother's baby). The man at the register (I would guess in his mid 40's and a double for Montel Williams, mind you) told me that he over charged "my husband" and proceeded to hand me his change.
Forget the change and the fact the man was very honest!!!
My Dad is , "sixty something". He is one who doesn't tell his age. But lets just say, "mid sixty". He's gonna shoot me. Beside the point.
Tell me I don't pass for someone "his age"?
Either the man at the register thought that I was OR he considered me a "midlife crisis" (as I like to call it). One of these "young thangs" with "older men".
The man at the register apologized after I corrected him, "Uh? That's MY DAD!!!!!"
He said, "Well he looks so young! Grey hair on men, is hard to identify an age because so many grey early...."
True. I do think my dad looks young for his age. If I didn't know him, I would put him at least ten years younger than he really is.
What makes it worse....Sister Sledge was with us, he must have thought she was our daughter! EWWWW!
I just don't know what to make of the whole scenario. But I am not really liking it.
Either I am considered MUCH older (sorry Dad, strictly for effect) or a "gold diggah".
My dad thought it was hysterical. Me, not so.
I think I am the one that is offended here. My dad on the other hand...made his day.
