(My family and I go to Chicago for sightseeing, which includes going to the museums. We had done one of the add on exhibits before going to the rest, so I had a sticker from it on my chest. We went to the chick hatching exhibit, and I had heard some workers talking about them earlier, so I choose to share the information.

Me: Apparently, the incubation period is 21 days, it’s cool to be here on a day they’re actually hatching.

Just then a woman who was with her two young sons speaks up, not looking from the eggs.

Woman: Were these eggs laid locally?

Me: I’m sorry, I don’t know.

Woman: *finally looking up* Oh, haha, you sounded like you worked here, and I thought you had a badge on. Sorry. You folks have a good day.

She and her boys left quickly, out of what I can only assume was embarrassment. I thought it was funny though, at least someone liked my fun facts.
