...you don't look like you fly those."
So in 2004 I moved to Shreveport, LA to fly the B-52 for the US Military.
I went to a store called: Books a Million to buy a book. I went into the store in my flight suit and as I was checking out the clerk asked me if I worked at the base. I said yes. She asked me what I did, I told her I flew the B52 as a navigator. She looked at me and said "you don't look like you would fly those". I didn't know what to say so I just left.
As the time goes on, I can't believe she said that to me.
