Random Loiterer: "What is this book?"
Me: "It's called Smile. It's a book about a girl's life around the time she gets braces."
RL: "That's stupid."
Me: "Actually, it's very good. It's won a number of awards, and is often recommended by schools."
RL: "But it sounds stupid. What's this other book?"
Me: "Sisters. It's a follow-up about the relationship between the main character of Smile and her younger sister."
RL: "Everything these days is stupid.No wonder kids are stupid."
Rather than respond, I go back to doing work.
RL: "Can I leave these flyers here?"
Me: "What are they for?"
RL: "My church group is running a weekend retreat to promote Abstinence Education for teens."
Me: "Now THAT sounds stupid. You can leave some out there if you'd like but I'm just going to throw them away."
RL: "I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were so judgmental."
