Funny Story

The other day, I had to call the UPS store to track a package. This is a regular place to visit for us. When she realized the destination she asked who this was. I told her it was Katie. She said, "Oh, is this the package that your dad had sent to Idaho?" I was totally laughing on the inside. I didn't want to say anything to make her feel bad, but I just thought it was so flattering that she thought Tom was my dad. I told him the story, and we had a good laugh. He said we should go in and start kissing in front of her. Funny, huh.
Well, yesterday, Tom goes in to send of another package. The lady makes a point to tell Tom how professional his daughter was. She was so impressed. Tom said, "My daughter? You know she is only 7 right?" She said "Yes, I can't believe you would give her so much responsibility."
Oh snap! She thought I was my seven year old daughter. All those good feelings I had about feeling like I looked young enough to be Tom's daughter evaporated.
This kind of thing happens all the time. Every time I answer the phone, they ask to talk to my parents.

What an idiot. Did you not tell her the sitch just the day before? Further proof that much of the world is made up of lametards.

You may sound five years old but you can clip coupons like no other. Be proud of your faerie like voice.

Oh and Katie, I need your email addy... for, er, no reason.

I didn't know you sounded like a kid on the phone. You sound normal in person. And that UPS person may not be the sharpest tool in the shed. Yet still funny. Thanks for sharing.

Crap, so if people say we sound alike, do I sound like a seven-year-old, too? Well, it is better than someone thinking you sound like a man, I guess.

I don't know how anyone can figure out how old you are when your voice is too soft to even hear! But not to worry....you look plenty young and with that big age difference between you and my baby boy, you can be assured of always looking much younger than he!

With your faerie voice you should bear testimony in Jenny's ward, and see if you can get her to leave the chapel in hysterics.

Did you just say "Oh Snap"... It is addictive huh!

GRATS on looking like Toms daughter. That rocks!!! I get people asking for my mom when I answer the phone...I just tell them she doesn't live here any more. They feel bad and hopefully never call back.

Emily said...

I get that ALL the time. It's pretty annoying. It's one of those things that I don't find flattering at all.

Did you suck helium or something? That's addictive, ya know.
