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.
