Tales From The Diner (Part Five)

However we did find some common ground on our definitions of “rude” in Alice’s next story.  In that one we both agreed that when somebody decides that saying “excuse me” is too much trouble, and instead chooses to push you out of the way so hard that you fall onto a table, that person is rude, and a rude and cutting response from yourself may indeed be excused under those circumstances.

That was where our common ground ended though.

Alice’s definition of a rude and cutting response was to look the guy right in the eye and proclaim, “You’re not right!”  My response would likely have been . . . less genteel, but that’s Alice for you.

I need to start going to that diner more often.
