I don’t understand why this was shallow. If she didn’t take down your name (I don’t usually check names when I’m checking out), I could see describing you this way. I’ve described people by height, build, age, race, etc. That’s just the easiest way to describe someone if you didn’t take down a name. I’m confused about why this was considered a “mislabel” unless you are not of Indian descent.
