I was taking my children to lunch when an older man on a mobility scooter (yeah) rode along side us, remarking about my looks.
I told him how inappropriate it was for him to say those things, particularly in front of my children and luckily, he got the point and rolled away.
My 8 year old son asked me if he said those things because he didn’t know I was married. I told him it didn’t matter, as it was disrespectful and rude (and inappropriate). My son then said, “I don’t understand. Even if you weren’t married, why would you want to marry him?”
