We’ve all had them of course: a complete stranger will do something or say something that takes your breath away for its sheer audacity or stupidity.
My daughter was shopping with her little boy this week when she noticed a middle-aged couple staring at them. FTR, my daughter is tall, dark-haired, slim, and very attractive (no, it’s not just mother-pride saying this) and the grandson is quite dashing too, with thick dark hair, long eyelashes and a smile to kill. He has light olive skin, and whilst my daughter has fair skin, having been through summer is quite tanned. My daugter is of Anglo Saxon stock and the little bloke’s daddy is South American.
So this couple continued to stare, then finally popped the question:
Now had I been there and been quick I would have said she won him in the local raffle, he being second prize. First prize was the pure-bred kid.
But my daughter was utterly gobsmacked. Australia is a pretty multicultural society, and even in small towns like where we live, there are plenty of people who have come from different ethnic backgrounds. For starters the question was rude, secondly it was ignorant, and third it was the funniest thing I’ve heard in a long time.
What have been your WTF moments?
