A lady came through my line the other day with her 5 year oldish daughter.

as i was ringing her up, her daughter started whistling. the mother fwipped around and yelled at her to stop RIGHT NOW! i had a brief thought that the daughter had been whistling all day and annoying the hell out of her mother, but mommy then said "only boys whistle!" the mother then turned back to me and looked BEYOND embarassed. she apologized to me, saying 'she has big brothers....'

i just smiled politely at her.

um.. when did WHISTLING become gender-based? did i miss a memo?

Yep, the memo just came out in fact. really you must stay on top of things. Also, see the memo on spitting, wearing baseball caps, and buying big red cars.

She must be stuck in the stoneage. Was her daughter wearing all pink too? Since any other color is for boys?

"Whistling girls and crowing hens, always come to some bad end."

A very old and very dated saying.


Not that the woman isn't crazy. Your story just reminded me of that....

makes me wonder what other things the daughter tries to do like *gasp* play with TINKER TOYS.

If you missed a memo then so did I. Better sell my truck, give all my ballcaps to goodwill and stop thinking about owning a business...

Geesh!

and make sure there's one in espanol, too, so that i could give it to the mother that was allowing her daughter to spit all over the floor.
