Once, a friend of mine and I were walking in a mall. A woman walked up to us and handed my friend a pamphlet, then asked her if ever she would be interested in modeling. My friend talked with the woman for a bit, as she was shown various programs and papers.
Then the woman looked at me, and asked if I was her boyfriend.
Being female, I was incredibly angered and hurt by this astounding assumption that I was male, and that my friend had actually been offered a modeling opportunity. Even if I had been asked, I would've said no, but I was still very hurt by this.
Sorry. Don't mean to be stealing this thread, I just wanted to share my experience I guess.
