    Sweet Sixteen Is A Bitter Surprise

    | Chicago, IL, USA | At The Checkout, Family & Kids, Theme Of The Month

    (When I was sixteen, I was the only girl working at this particular hardware store. While I was scanning another customer’s purchases, and old man slides behind me at the register and whispers in my ear.)

    Customer: “I didn’t find what I wanted, but that’s okay.”

    (I jerk away from him, because he was quite close.)

    Me: “Oh… I’m sorry, sir.”

    Customer: *takes my left hand and caresses my ring finger* “Tsk, tsk. Boys don’t know anything these days. A girl like you should already be snapped up.”

    Me: “I’m 16.”

    Customer: *drops my hand abruptly* “Have a nice day.”
