Man or woman?

Today, I sang at a retirement home with my school choir. Afterward we went to speak to the old people, just to get to know them a little. The first woman I shake hands with ask "Are you a boy or a girl?" FML

Hahahaha. Don't worry dude, it happens with old folks. They always get my name all messed up and call me the girl version of it. Just don't take it personally and just laugh and move on to the next silly question.

Also, it could be that the old gal just wanted to see something he hasn't seen in a while, so she was trying to make you pull your pants down. Hahahah. Okay, j/k that was gross.

That totally happened to me, except the old lady said "Is you a boy or a girl? You could be a billy goat for all I know." Before I could answer, another lady yelled "It's a boy."

I'm obviously a girl, and was only slightly offended, they were senile after all. The worker lady said it was because I was wearing a sweatshirt and they needed to see my boobs to tell what I was.
