Most of the time I am totally fine not living the life of 2.5 kids, a husband, and a picket fence. But every once in awhile I get a bit peeved that people assume I have those things.
This time it occurred as I was answering security questions for my on-line banking. The majority of questions were about children and spouses. The problem is, I don’t have kids or a spouse. I was a bit stumped as to how I was going to choose five questions to answer unless I made up the answers.
That didn’t seem like a wise plan.
Luckily, as I scrolled down I could answer questions about my parents and grandparents, or where I was born. I was not doomed to a life without on-line banking.
A couple of years ago, a woman said to me “You have children right?” I said “no.” She smiled and replied “Well, it’s not too late.” I wish I would have had the presence of mind to answer “That statement assumes several things, none of which are true” then smile graciously.
