Awkwardly helpful!!

Soooooooooo I've always LOVED Trader Joe's, buuuuuuuut thanks to Hanna and the cookbook her and Brandon got me for my birthday, I've been getting EVEN MORE into it!!! Weeeeeeeeeeellllll the other day I was at Trader Joe's stocking up on my favorite sweet and spicy jarred jalapenos, when I noticed I very tall broad-shouldered man that was trying to be a woman. I'm thinking in my head liiiiiiike really bro, it's NOT happening!!! 
.
Buuuuuut whateverrrr, ain't none of my business, the aisle was soooooo crowded and I just needed to get my stuff and be on my way to prayer meeting at church. As I'm getting my stuff, I heard something behind me fall to the ground. I looked and it was this man-trying to be a lady, and a thing of oatmeal had fallen out of their basket. I waited to see if they would realize it had fallen, buuuuuut after about 20 seconds of this person NOT realizing, I figured I would just BE HELPFUL!!! 
(BIGGGGGEST MISTAKE EVERRRRR;))))
.
I'm liiiiiiiiiiike, excuse me sir...No one turned around...I tried again, Excuse me sir! No one turned, i'm like right behind them...I'm like, maybe this man isn't turning cuz he identifies as a woman???? Does he expect me to say Ma'am???? This is soooooo weird....maybe i should just forget about the oatmeal on the floor...he doesn't really need it...
.
All of the sudden, HE TURNS AROUND, GLARES AT ME AND SAYS...
EXCUSE ME???? ARE YOU TALKING TO ME??? ANNNNNND OMW...He was NOT trying to be a SHE, he SHE, REALLY WAS, A SHE!!! 
Ooooooooooops...guess I shoulda just gone with the whole, being politically correct thing and everything woulda been ok!!! It just got DEAD SILENT ON THE AISLE!!! Idk how many people were laughing behind their masks buuuuuuut I was SCARED out of my wits!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! 
.
I was liiiiiiike, Ummmmmmmmmm... I mean, this lady was MAAAAAAD at me...I genuinely felt really bad....buuuuuuuuuut would it really help the situation if I apoligized to her for thinking she was a man, TRYING to be a lady???? (I didn't think so!) Soooooo i'm just like, ummmmm...UMMMM...UH, you dropped something... She snatched up that oatmeal and stomped out of the aisle!!!

I was liiiiiiikkkkke MAAAAAAAAANNNN...it's NOT like I said it to be mean!!! We all have that akward mistaken identity moment right??? I mean someone mistook me for pregnant once, (At Trader joe's) you didn't see me getting all hot like that!!! (I mean, he was like 4, and I was wearing a maternity looking top, buuuuuuut....bahahahahaaaa)
.
I'm like, weeeeeeeeeeeellllll THAT WAS AWKWARD!!!! Next time I'm unsure of someone's gender, THAT OATMEAL IS STAYING ON THE FLOOR!!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!
