I choose to not be offended

July 11, 2017

1.) I’m not going to be offended by the 25-yr-old gal at the pet store today who asked me, “Do you want some help out to your car?” as I was buying a 30-pound bag of dog food. #ageism

2.) I’m also not going to be offended by the woman at the grocery store a couple weeks ago who warned me that the avocados I was buying weren’t quite ripe, because she’s surely smarter than a guy when it comes to buying avocados. #sexism

3.) Likewise, I’m not going to be offended by the female cashier at the grocery store a month or two ago, who decided to educate me about 75% of the items I was buying because surely guys have no idea how to do the grocery shopping. #sexism #womansplaining

Nope. Not gonna be offended. Life’s too short. Just gonna keep smiling and doing my thing. YMMV 🙂

ps –

1.) Fortunately, I can carry 30 pounds of dog food very easily at my current age.

2.) I don’t like avocados, but my wife says no one picks a better avocado than me. Weird, huh?

3.) I’ve been doing the family grocery shopping for the past 10 years at minimum.
