72. What amazes me is that you were insulted.
If that happened to me, I would have been flattered. Well, OK, I would have been shocked first, but then flattered. Then again, people don't stop me on the street, either. I'm not "pretty."

You claim your response would have been exactly the same if he looked like George Clooney. But in your OP, you explicitly refer to "A guy, who looked like he was from Louisiana. Then you apologize, and said "I should have said a NASCAR fan." Aren't these statements, in fact, showing that you do judge others by appearance?

Maybe you were just trying to start a conversation by posting this story. I'm sorry, but it seems pretty shallow to me.
