Thanks for making it awkward...

I was just out shoveling the drive since it snowed here yet again.   This sweet old man was walking his dog on the other side of the street so I said hello.  I thought it the neighborly thing to do.  He yelled from across the street to me something I couldn't quite hear.  When I asked him to repeat it he said, "that's a man's job," in reference to my shoveling the drive.

How does one respond to a statement like this?  I just said, as polite as possible, "oh, okay."  He shuffled on down the street and I was left feeling incredibly awkward.  Do you ever have moments like this where you just have no idea how to respond?
