I went to the coffee place across the street to get a cup of coffee and a cookie. As the person at the register was ringing everything up, she asked me "So...are you a mom?"
I am not a mom and have no intention of ever being one. I also hadn't expected any of this to come up while getting coffee, so my brain kind of ground to a halt. The best I could get out was "Uh, no. I have a cat, though."
Turns out that since this is the first day of school for all the local kids, the coffee place decided to have a "Mom sale." Except instead of putting out a sign advertising it and accepting that some people would lie to get the discount, employees have to ask everyone who might be a mom if they're a mom. Awkward.
