This morning I was walking through the aisles of a store with Ben in his stroller when I kept on bumping into the same man. The first time I said, "Sorry" as I tried to squeeze past him -not so bad. The second time, I walked past him, and said, "sorry" as though anticipating that he might accidentally back up and bump in to me - kind of bad. The third time I saw him the man said, "Hello again!" to me and I responded with "Sorry!" That's really bad! I actually apologized to him for just being there. How ridiculous is that?! Sometimes I say sorry when other people bump into me!
Have you ever realized that you fulfill a stereotype?
|Sorry, I couldn't help myself.|
