    A Step(Mom) Too Far

    | Tucson, AZ, USA | Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Teenagers

    (We go into a gas station. My stepmom picks up cigarettes for my dad. I’m 17; my brother is 16, and my stepmom about 26.)

    Clerk: “I need to see some ID.”

    Stepmom: *hands over ID* “I’m their mom, you know.”

    Clerk: *looks at ID, then at her* “No you’re not!”

    Stepmom: “Yes I am.”

    Clerk: *looking at me* “How old are you?”

    Me: “17.”

    Clerk: *looks at my stepmom again* “No you’re not!”

    Stepmom: “Yes I am.”

    Me: *giggling* “She’s our stepmom.”

    Stepmom: “I’ve had them since they were 9.”

    Clerk: *looking horrified* “You had them when you were 9!?”
