"She's a good helper, isn't she?"
Here's a very tiny story. I was walking one of my clients and this elderly man stops in front of me. I could tell he was about to say something. As I passed him, he said in a loud patronizing voice, "She's a good helper, isn't she?" I think he meant the dog, but I'm not 100% sure. Oy. I certainly don't mind people saying hello if they do it in a non-patronizing way. He was definitely trying to make me "feel good" versus just saying hi.
