I had this conversation with our office administrative assistant:
Admin Assistant: You look pretty today. How old are you?
Me: (First I smiled, then was thrown off by the age question) Oh, thanks. I’m twenty-___ (I’m in my “middle” 20s).
Admin Assistant: Oh, ok. I wanted to set you up with my son, but you’re too old for him.
Me: *polite smile* (In my head: WTF?!?!)
I don’t know what to be more annoyed with: #1: the presumption in setting me up (I’ve never had a conversation with her that lasted more than 60 seconds, and they usually involve office supplies), #2:the fact that I was “rejected” by someone I have no interest in going out with whatsoever in the first place, #3 that it was his MOM who rejected me or #4: that I was rejected on account of my age.
Ugggggh. I’m sure she meant well and didn’t mean to offend me, but that doesn’t make things less irritating. Am I right to be annoyed, or am I starting to get oversensitive about my singlehood?
