Speak up and tell the person how you feel. Yes, it’s annoying but I doubt the comments are going to scare you for life and perhaps you can find some humor in the stupidity! Twenty years ago, I was asked at a job interview why I just didn’t stay home and let my husband work. I gave him a bit of a look and ignored the question, he moved on with the interview after that. I decided not accept the job because the starting pay was less then what I was already making. Being paid less is more offense to me than some goofy comment.
