    (I’m 12 and helping out at my grandparent’s farm. My 3-year old cousin has been playing too close the driveway, so I carry him while ringing up customers.)

    Customer: “Dear, your son is just darling. Absolutely adorable!”

    Me: “Thank you, ma’am, but this is my cousin.”

    Customer: “Nonsense, he looks exactly like you! Well, if you were a boy, but EXACTLY like you.”

    (Note that I have curly dark hair, and he has straight blond hair, and that’s just the beginning of the differences.)

    Me: “I don’t think–”

    Customer: “EXACTLY like you.

    Me: “I’m sorry, but–”

    Customer: “EXACTLY. LIKE. YOU.”

    Me: “If you say–”

    Customer: “EXACTLY.”

    Me: “…that’ll be $35.”
