Life lessons I've received from strangers and will never follow
  1. I am unwed because of my choice of underwear
    In Russia as I was on the bus, a babushka pulled me aside to inform me that I was wearing the wrong type of underwear for my dress and that's probably why I didn't have a husband
  2. I need to get pregnant over the weekend
    A client informed me that since I had a job, there was not reason why I shouldn't already have a child, since children are the only way to guarantee that someone loves you. When I told her to have a good weekend, she promptly replied with "please get pregnant soon"
  3. You're pretty, so you don't need to be smart
    The literal words that came out of my professor's mouth after I inquired about why she never called on me during lectures
