"Is your mom or dad home?"

LOL Seriously? I got told I sounded like a teenager just now by a lady working for the Denver Post! All I said was "Hello!" and "Good, how are you?" Anything like that happen to you?

  • not yet, but yesterday the cable company called and they asked for my husband . I told her he wasn't home but that I was his wife and she giggled and was like okay "mrs.faircloth" very sarcastically, almost like she didn't believe me.

  • Yeah! I got told to stop playing and give the phone to my "dad" which was actually my husband laughing while I tried telling the person I was 26, not 16. :-) I just hung up the phone :-)

  • OMG! I have been asked that my whole life...I would get calls and the right after I say " hello", they would ask is the lady of the house home? or Is your mom home? Is the man or lady of the house home?, speaking! or this is the lady of the house or I'm an adult I don't live with my parents anymore.

  • LMAO
    I still get carded at gas stations and stores to buy cigarettes/alcohol/spray paint/etc...
    But is it wrong that sometimes I pretend to be 'suspicious and nervous' to mess with them? =D
    So far no ones asked for my 'mommy or daddy' waiting on that one.
