As I raced to get a lift at a shopping centre, some guy who was already in there made a comment about how I looked like a woman on mission to spend up big on my credit card. I was actually in a rush because I was grabbing a bite to eat before I had to go somewhere else.
Anyway my response was reply quite indignantly "Sorry but I am not your stereotypical woman". He was kind of taken aback because he thought he was being funny and made some comment about his assumption which I said was pretty bad one.
Would you react the same way? Should I have taken it with good humour or and give him the benefit of the doubt? Or should he be called to account for making a statement that is not true of all people of a certain gender?
