Went to local swimming baths. Got changed, went into the pool, had a bit of the swim. Got out and sat on the side to adjust my goggles.

The attendant came over, and I figured he was going to tell me off for sitting on the side or something. No, he points at my leg.

Him: What's that?
Me: What's what?
Him: That thing on your leg.
Me: Oh! Scars...why?
Him: Are you sure?
Me: ...yes.
Him: Are you contagious? It looks odd.
Me:'s a scar. No, it's not contagious.
Him: Oh. [walks off]

Now, I have two scars on my calf. Both circular, both lumps with darker patches. Can understand they look ugly. But - am I being oversensitive, or was he being rude?
