Cutting That Conversation Short

, , | Right | September 22, 2018

(I am a hostess at a family restaurant that has quite a few regulars. I am relatively new, so not everyone has seen me all that often. Last weekend I wore glasses.)

Me: “Hello! Welcome to [Restaurant].”

Customer: “You look so much prettier without your glasses! You shouldn’t wear them!”

(I am stunned and not quite sure how to respond, so I walk her and her husband to their table and move on. Later, I pass by and the woman flags me down.)

Me: “Yes, ma’am?”

Customer: “It must suck, being that pretty, and that skinny, but too short to be a model!”

Me: *shocked and mumble* “Um, I guess so.”

(I avoided as much conversation as I could with that woman for the rest of my time there.)
