Normally I don’t let much get to me in terms of the subtle kind of crap that us chicks get in day to day life. Guys generally laugh it off and say we’re just tho thenthitive and it’s typical for a chick to read too much into stuff. But sometimes it’s alternately annoying and amusing, the stuff that guys come up with.

I was at Academy today, at the gun counter. I wanted to buy a pair of binoculars to replace my beat-up pair that I use for hunting. After I waited in line for a while, the fella behind the counter asked if he could help me.

“Yes,” I said, “I’m looking for a pair of binoculars.”

“Oh, okay. Are they for your husband or your brother?”

I mean, honestly. “Er, no, they’re for me to use when I go hunting, and I need something small enough for my little girls to scan for deer with when they’re hunting with me.” That shut him up.

For some reason, my desire to buy binoculars was quelled. I ended up going to Walmart for them.
