Ok Nosey

Ok Nosey

The check out guy at Trader Joe’s was a little too nosey today. The conversation started out as small talk while he tallied the groceries…

TJ man – How old is your baby?
me- She’s one
TJ man – How many months?
me – (laughing) 12
TJ man – My son will be 13 months tomorrow. Is she talking?
me – No, not yet.
TJ man – Is she walking?
me – No.
TJ man – How many teeth does she have?
me – None yet.
(I was only slightly annoyed by the interrogation, but then he had to throw this question out there..)
TJ man – Are you nursing?
me – um..no
TJ man – With no teeth you really should be.
me – ok.

And with that I picked up my bag and walked away. What was that all about?

  1. Up until the last question/comment, I would have just thought he was an extremely interested dad – hoping to compare his child with yours – wondering what’s ‘normal’ etc.

    The last question about nursing – I would say was a bit over the top and the rest of his comment, definitely inappropriate.

    Maybe he was practicing for an “in your face” reality show.

  2. Could it be that finally I have figured out the riddle of responding to a blog the way I really want to?

    It’s hard to believe I may have unfolded the mysteries of this very simple issue.
