Comeback line of the week

m_fallenangel scores for wit and chivalry.

Ever have those imagined scenarios in your head that you just hope you get to use someday?

Today was the someday for one of my all time favorites.

I was out of coffee at home; so I swung through Circle K on my way to work. I paid and was on my way to the door when a woman, mid-40s or so, was coming up the aisle perpendicular to me toward the door.

I opened the door and held it for her. Now, she was nicely dressed in professional clothes, as I was I. She gave me a sneer and asked, "Are you holding that door for me because I'm a woman?"

To which, after years of holding the line in my mind waiting for this setup, I replied, "No, ma'am. I'm holding it for you because I'm a gentleman."

The clerk roared and I thought the woman was going to punch me, but she went through nonetheless.

Post is flocked. QWP.
