Did I just get stereotyped?

Recently I was in my yoga clothes going into my Pure Barre studio for a class. A new pizza place is next door to Pure Barre, although I haven't been yet for obvious reasons (calories). As I was walking past the pizza restaurant, a man who I assume is the owner opened the door and asked if he could ask me a question. It caught me a little off guard, but I said sure. He asked if I drink Fiji bottled water.
I said that I don't buy bottled water as often now that I got a plastic/chemical free water bottle to carry, but that when I do buy bottled water I usually get Fiji.
He said he was thinking of getting it to sell to Pure Barre clients. I briefly wondered how he guessed that I like Fiji bottled water. And then I realized, I was just totally stereotyped.
Happy Hump Day everyone!!


  1. I personally would have been a little offended...even if you are a client, he had no right to make the assumption based on your appearance, in my opinion.
