(It is the day before Valentine’s Day. I go to my local card shop to buy a card for my partner. I am non-white male.)

Woman: “Did you make a mistake? It says here “To my boyfriend.””

Me: “Yes, that is right. It is for my boyfriend.”

Woman: “Just making sure. With all the politically correct words like “partner and fiancé” these days people are getting confused. That would be £3.50 then please.”

Me: *nervous laugh* “Here is £5.”

Woman: “Here is your change; have a lovely evening.”

Me: “Thanks, have a lovely weekend.” *rushes out*

(I still do not know whether she thought I made a vocabulary error because I do not look white or whether she thinks I made a mistake for being gay.)
