Something Stupid

My son and I went to Gallo Ice Arena for public skating yesterday. We were lacing up our skates to go on the ice while a woman who had finished skating was taking hers off. She looked over at me and said, “he’s wearing the wrong kind of skates.” My son has black figure skates - she was wearing hockey skates.
So, to recap, a women in hockey skates is telling me that my son shouldn’t be wearing figure skates. Is there no end to the irony? Should I have told her that in fact she was wearing the wrong kind of skates as well and if she can play hockey why can’t my son wear figure skates?
