Today I was about to enter a public restroom just as the attendant was exiting, when she caught sight of me and promptly planted herself in front of the door, barring my way and pointed further down the corridor.
I looked at the sign to make sure it was the women’s, and it was, and then I looked at her in confusion for the longest time, wondering what on earth she was doing.Then I remembered, silly me, I look like a male, and I said loudly and gleefully ‘I’m a LADY!’, whereupon she stood aside with an embarrassed smile. I couldn’t stop laughing for quite some time after.
Most of the time I’m insecure and horribly worried about people giving me evils for the way I look, but for one glorious moment I had forgotten all about myself and had instead learned to laugh at the absurdity others are capable of.
What’s your experience?
