I Get Mistaken For A Child

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3 People

    I have a baby face and I'm short

    so I get asked if I need a children's menu a lot! Then they wonder why they get one dollar for a tip. But I can go look I the toy section without any trouble so that's the good part.
