oh, we've got experience with salespeople talking to my husband instead of me. we wanted to check out a new car not too long ago- not to buy, just to see it. so we went to the dealership. and the sales dude comes out, and does 99% of his talking to DH. DH makes it quite clear i am the one who wanted to come see the car, etc. sales dude looks at me- to check me out, not to talk to me. hands a brochure to DH, who takes a big step back and points at me, indicating that he should hand the brochure to me. sales dude doesn't get it. DH and i saw what was going on so we had a little fun with it and took off. but that happens all the time. they talk to the guy. i don't get it. i can't speak to the height issue, though, i'm fairly tall for a female. it's still a frustrating phenomenon.
