Just Lost Their Chemistry

| MI, USA | Working | February 20, 2014

(I am 20 years old and opening a new bank account. The account manager is trying to make small talk with me while the information processes. I should note I appear to fit the ‘skinny blonde girl’ stereotype.)

Manager: “So, are you in school?”

Me: “Yes. I just started my third year.”

Manager: “And what are you studying?”

Me: “I’m doing a double major in chemistry and physics.”

Manager: *stops typing and scrunches her face up a little* “Oh… wow. Really? Science? Are you sure that’s not too hard for you?”

Me: “Um, yes. I really enjoy it, and I seem to have a knack for it. I just aced a course on relativistic physics.”

Manager: “I didn’t expect you to say that. I expected something fluffy like interior decorating or fashion design. If you could excuse me for a second, I, uh, need to go get something from the back.”

(She walks away. Someone else came to finish up the paperwork as the original woman ‘was suddenly called away.’)
