Have you ever had the experience where you are in a conversation, ask a question and the answer is directed not at you but at the man or woman standing next to you ??? It seems to happen to me quite often…. especially when it is a man speaking. For example…. I am an active, vibrant, outgoing, single woman. I Bought a camper van for myself for my 65 birthday last year. I want it all checked over and all neccessary repairs done before I head off with my dog on a 6 week cross Canada trip this spring…. Yesterday I had a male friend drive me to the repair shop to pick up my van after having the generator fixed. When I asked the tecnician to show me how to start, maintain and run it… he directed all of his ‘answers’ to my friend !!!!! repeatedly!!!! even when I physically moved in front of my friend….
This happens quite often to me and I don’t know how to handle it ….. any suggestions ??? Have you ever been in this situation ??? How did you handle it ???
All suggestions greatly appreciated … Thanks, Chris.
