[Konnie] No Offense

Postby Konnie » Sat Jul 12, 2014 3:09 am

Recently, a woman I did not know asked a question that might normally insult me. But this time, I understood her reasoning and had only my own hobby to blame.

Were you exercising that hobby when she asked you the question? Was the question about you? about your hobby?

Relevant where this happened? If so, indoors vs outdoors? public place vs private residence?

Did she ask you if you were pregnant? And is your hobby related to food?

Did this happen in a store? restaurant? movie theatre? gym? other business? school? government building?

Does your hobby fall into the category sports? music? arts? crafts? writing? something else creative? reading? shopping?

Were other people present when this happened? If so, were they with you? with the woman? neither?

Did she see you buy something that a pregnant woman would buy? But you actually bought it for your hobby? Did you buy a book about names, to learn about how you can name characters in a book, and the woman thought you were choosing a name for the baby?

I write frequently, but like to give character names with specific meanings. Recently, i bought a bokk full of baby names with meanings and origins. The cashier naturally assumed I was pregnant. Nice work, everyone!
