I went to use the facilities at work this afternoon, and there was a woman in the restroom washing her hands. She's one of those people that I recognize but don't actually know. We've never spoken. Don't know each other's names.
Here's how she decided our first conversation should go:
Random woman: You look like a little girl! Every time I see you, I think, "Who is that little girl?"
Me: Uh...thanks, I think...[duck into stall]
Now. I realize that I'm taking the "casual Friday" thing very seriously today. I'm turning 30 in a few months, so I suppose I should relish such comments while I can. But. I can't help but be offended! It's really not appropriate to tell someone--a colleague...a stranger!--that she looks like a little girl!
I guess I should be grateful that her follow-up wasn't, "And when is your baby due?"
