Should I feel insulted?

I always bring a book with me when I go out by myself just in case I find myself having to wait for something or someone. Today on my way home from an art supply store Mr.Pea called and asked me to pick up some barbecue take out. After I gave my order, the guy who took it told me it would take about 15 minutes and pointed to the Starbucks on the other side of the parking lot. I said I would just wait on a bench and pointed at my book. He looked at me like I was an alien and said(incredulously I want to add),"You read?!"

I didn't say anything back since I don't know what kind of response that question called for.

The correct answer is "Yes, yes I do. Please go make my food now and stop being crazy."

Either he suffers from the delusion that really cute women don't read, or more likely, he, himself does not read and is at a loss to comprehend those who do.

Books serve the additional purpose of limiting ones conversations with stupid people.

and you didn't say something like "and you don't"?

No ways!

People who don't read should not be allowed to talk.

I think I would have said, "Yeah.. I write and do basic math, too. What's your point?"

Yep. Sometimes I can be sarcastic. LOL

I think I would have said "No, I don't" and walked out.
For some reason I think that's funny.
