I haven't been mistakenly called "Sir" since I was in MCJROTC (Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) in high school! I know it was probably an honest mistake, but it still didn't help my ego much. Blargh...

Anyone else here ever been mistaken for a guy?

No, I'm sorry that happened. :( I did get asked the other day if I was pregnant though. I'm definitely not.

My slightly senile FIL asked me if I was pregnant once. I still have some pudge from my last pregnancy, so I didn't hold it against him.

When I was a kid and had a HORRIBLE hair cut.  Sucks.  Sorry that happened.

No, but I accidently called a woman sir before.  She really really didn't look like a woman and I was never so embarrassed in my life.  She was wearing a plaid mens shirt, blue jeans, belt with a big ole belt buckle, work boots, had short hair, no makeup and wearing a truckers hat....and had an ambiguous voice.  I really felt terrible, but I didn't know.

Never. I'm too feminine for that ever to happen.

Aww, at least he has an excuse.

There's a customer that comes in, he's always obnoxiously rude, he calls me sir, and his way of correcting it is "oh. Well, I mean, it doesn't matter."

 YES

I was wearing black pants and a white dress shirt(standard for where I worked). Sometimes I wore pants and sometimes not. Anyhow, I was so small and not very curvy. My back was turned and someone said "sir". I had short hair at the time as well.

I wasn't mad or anything.
