Yesterday I was in the Gap, and I witnessed what was, to me, a bizarre episode. As someone who’s been using the Internet for 10 years (as of this fall), I’m always shocked to witness the degree to which the Internet pervades the general culture these days. Anyway, a woman and her daughter (perhaps early high-school age) were shopping. The daughter was trying on clothes as her mother milled around, I wasn’t really paying attention. Anyway, as I was leaving the store, I heard the mother turn to the daughter and say, in reference to a guy working at the store, “That gentleman would like your email address.” The fact that one teenager could reasonably assume another would just have an email address was a bit shocking, as was the fact that the mother was facilitating some dude at the Gap hitting on her daugher, but I digress.
