I had the craziest conversation with a cashier at the grocery store.
Cashier: Can I see your ID?
Cashier: Wow, you really cut your hair!
Me: Nope, I lost it to cancer.
Cashier: Oh, brain cancer?
Me: No, breast cancer
Cashier: *shakes head* I don't get it. How do you lose your hair from breast cancer?
Me: *explained how chemotherapy works*
Cashier: I know. I worry about breast cancer all the time because I lose hair all the time in the shower.
That really sucks. Everyone dies when they get breast cancer.
Me: Actually, more people live than die. Have a great day!
I'm still smiling about this conversation. This woman was in her late 20's.
While I'm extremely happy that she has never been touched by cancer and has no idea how cancer treatments work, it's unbelievable that ANYONE can be THAT clueless in this day and age.
Today at Goodwill, the cashier told me I looked like a young Jamie Lee Curtis.
Not a great day for small talk with the cashiers. :)
