Rampant sexism

I took my daughter for her first set of injections today. Despite my fear of needles, I'm happy to take the kids to each and every series of immunisations.

As I sat in the reception at the surgery, I thought I heard her name being called out. And again, so I stood up and moved forward only to be blanked by the nurse. It was only when she saw me carrying my daughter in the car seat that she apologised saying, "I'm sorry but I was looking for a mum".

My wife gets upset when callers assume that she is the receptionist and not a full qualified accountant, so perhaps it's my turn to be insulted.
