So, me and my aide were at the park with one of my dog-walking clients. This lady and her dog come in (we are the only people there) and naturally we start chatting because her dog and my client are playing. She directs all of her conversation to my aide, who says "EVA'S a dog walker and SHE sometimes comes here" etc. Even after this, the woman still referred to me as a boy (to my aide not to me). No big deal. This happens all the time. But then when my aide corrected her on my pronoun, the woman replied (to my aide) "Ohhh, is that what IT is!" My aide looked at me like "oh god, we should have brought the camera." We left shortly after but not before the woman shouted "BYE SWEETIE EVA!!!!!" at me. Some people.
