Are you serious??

The other day, I was at a check-out paying for something, and the (very young) cashier said to me "I love your purse". Here's how the conversation went:

Her: I love your purse. Too cute. (while chewing her gum very loudly)

Me: Thanks. I've had it forever.

Her: No way! It looks brand new.

Me: Yeah, I've had it since I was in high school (that's true).

Her: I love vintage purses!

Me: Vintage? Are you calling me vintage? Seriously?

Her: (giggle). Have a nice day, ma'am.

Me: (gag)

Are you really serious? If you are vintage, what does that make me??????????????? And, by the way, which purse was it - among your approximately 2,000???? {she never gets rid of a purse!}

Even if you were vintage, you are still the baby among the
" gang " from EKU . I was until you came along and I wouldn't have it any other way .
Love ya, mean it !!!!!

Hey Woman! I remember one time, way back in 1999, when I was in the mall in Lexington with Laura Carr and some guy she knew asked if I was her mother. What the...??? I have never been able to get over that one. :)

You're too cute, even at the ripe old age of 35!
