A One-Minute Drama

Scene: exiting the bank. Today, 4:08 PM.

Jennifer holds open the door for a Young Man of about 20 years old. Keep in mind that Jennifer is mid-thirties.

Young Man: Thank you, sweetie.

Jennifer: ... Did you just call me sweetie?

YM: (with pride and a pinch of bravado) Yes. I'm a polite gentleman.

Jennifer: (politely, but firmly) I prefer "Ma'am." (Exits to parking lot, long powerful strides, skirt whipping around her legs.)

YM: (softly) OK, I'm sorry.

Sometimes I surprise myself. Cliff thought it was hilarious (in a good way).
