Was in our docs. waiting room earlier this week, when in walks a lady with a cup of coffee, so seizing the moment, as quick as a flash I said "Good Morning, where's mine?" She smiled and instead of slapping my face said"would you like one, I'll nip back to the cafe and get you one" Of course I thanked her and declined her unexpected offer, but fell to wondering that if she'd been under 30 I'd have got the slap and told to "Get Lost"
As it was a conversation got under way including, would you believe, a common interest in "Maggies" and other Aussie birdlife, whilst other patients stared like morons at the TV ads. or had noses in their i-phones stabbing at icons! I thought, what a refreshing change, just like days of yore, until we were rudely interrupted by the receptionist shouting "Next!"
Anyway, I thought it to be a nice encounter!
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
