Microaggressions

I worked in a pet store and a mother and her young daughter come in one day. The little girl is very young, probably less than five years old, but extremely inquisitive and interested in all the reptiles and fish we have. Her mother apologizes for all the questions and I say it’s no problem. Then I remark that little girl should be a scientist someday, seeing as she’s so curious. The mother then acts like I suggested she be a serial killer. “No no! I don’t want that!.” I ask why and she says “It’s too hard!” I think I’ll take the regret for not saying anything more to my grave, but I was so shocked I couldn’t think.
