I was standing at the check out counter and Mr. E was sitting in the grocery cart. I could hear the person working on the next register over and a customer comment on how cute Mr. E is. Then the register worker said:

You can never tell these days if it’s a boy or a girl.

And the customer responded:

Oh I know, isn’t it such a shame!

WTF?! First of all i was RIGHT THERE! Second of all, while his outfit could be consdiered gender neutral, it was leaning towards ‘boy’ (only because finding truely gender neutral clothes for everyday of the week is damn near impossible). But since his outfit was not 100% blue, they were bothered. Some people really irk me.
