Quote of the Day, 29.
"I thought you were more of a frozen pizza guy and less of a mop guy."
-- Grocery store attendant last night.
Our grocery store has "drive-up." You pay for your groceries and they then haul your cart to a door where you can drive up and load them in, saving me the trouble of pushing two carts while also maneuvering two little boys through a parking lot.
When I pulled up last night, the girl outside the door had two carts waiting. As I pulled up she said "This one yours?" and pointed to the wrong cart. "Nope," I said. "We've got that one." That's when she said she'd guessed me wrong, and laid today's quote of the day on me.
I took it as a compliment as I loaded up the groceries and drove away. Here's how I interpreted it: I'm a young-enough, cool enough looking guy that I'd be more interested in buying frozen pizzas -- necessary because of my young, hip lifestyle-- than a mop.
Then, about halfway home, I thought: What if she meant that I looked more like the kind of guy who can't cook and never cleans?
Then I had trouble falling asleep last night.
