I don't know why this bothers me, but it does.

I mean, I can go to Target and buy a bra and tampons and have no problem with a man as my cashier - even when they comment on my purchases, it doesn't rattle me.

But if the only two employees at the library check-out are men, I'll put back the Confessions of a Shopaholic movie and any girl-y novels or self-help books.  Is it that I don't want to appear ditsy by my choice of entertainment material? 

I have made a mental note to only check-out impressively cognizant materials (gardening literature, war history, sci-fi movies) on Saturdays from now on.  I'm caving to the pressure......

    You do not look nor act like a ditsy type so I wouldn't worry about it. Plus if you choose those one week and your impressively cognizant materials the next then you just appear well rounded and deep. :)

    I actually liked the BOOK Confessions of a Shopaholic better than the movie. But the book doesn't have the pretty clothes to look at so there you go.

    My book choices are all over the place and I'm sure the librarians already think I'm a weirdo. I'm not choosing any one thing that is weird but if you look at the whole I'm sure it seems strange. But they can't bother me with their judgments because one of them didn't know what JANE EYRE was. Seriously. (I was searching for The Eyre Affair - Me: you know, like Jane Eyre? Them: blank stare. Me: Incredulous stare.)
