Here is another mini post. I might be doing them from time to time. Yesterday, I wrote A Happy Moment. That was my first one.
Okay so I will give this in the order that they happened. The first was in a group I was in this afternoon. What happen was that the leader referred to me as—Stephie—twice and used an appropriate pronoun too—she.
The bummer was I called for a cab and the reservation agent immediately called me sir even though I was doing my best to soften my voice. It could have been my name is attached to the phone I use. Either way it let the air out of my tire from what occurred in group.
So, there you have it. I had an up experience and a down experience related to my gender. Overall, the use of my name far out weighed being called sir.
