I had two incidences that could be taken either way...so I'm asking you
Offensive or Not Offensive?
1. Rod came back to hang the television in my bedroom. He was examining all the detail work that I did when I trimmed out his Ikea hack cabinets. If you recall, I added wood to the back, put on a chair rail, added a small crown at the top, etc. He kept saying that I did a great job, he loved it, and he could not believe that a "woman" did this.
2. On a trip to a local hardware store, I was going up and down isles searching for MDF boards. I stopped and asked an employee who was hard at work stocking the shelves... I told him I wanted a 1 x 6, when in actuality I wanted an 11/16 x 6....my bad. He told me the next isle. I knew it was not there because I just left that isle. When I explained it again, he said "that's not a 1 x 6", and pointed me in the right direction. I thanked him, and while I was walking away....he said, "anytime baby".
My reply to the second one....It's been years since anyone called me "Baby"!
So, what do you think? Do you find any of this offensive? What comments have you heard that could go either way?
