Anti-Semitism?

Conversation overheard in the Math/Science Office the other day:
Ms. X [to Student Y]: I need a babysitter for my kids. Do you babysit?

Student Y: Yes, I do.

Ms. X: You aren’t Jewish, are you?

Student Y: No.
Not knowing Ms. X, you are probably startled by her second question. Sounds anti-Semitic, doesn’t it?

...

But actually Ms. X is an observant Jew. She was looking for a babysitter for Yom Kippur, and didn’t want to put a Jewish student in the position of driving on such a holy day.
