Don’t Assume In A Manner Of Speaking

Friendly | March 5, 2015

(My mom and I are going to get her glasses fixed and she parks in a handicap parking space. My mom has a hanger but she forgets to put it up.)

Mom: *as we leave* “Oh, I forgot to put the hanger up. Lucky I didn’t get a ticket!”

Me: *shrugs* “Yeah, lucky.”

Woman: *comes up to my mom, looking angry* “YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF TAKING A PARKING SPACE YOU DON’T NEED! THOSE SPOTS ARE FOR DISABLED PEOPLE” *continues ranting and screaming*

Mom: *trying to get a word in edgewise*

Me: *sneaks up behind woman before shouting in her ear* “SHUT UP!”

Woman: *falls quiet, holding her ear in pain*

Me: *smiles* “Thank you. Now, if you had just asked, my mom could have told you she has a hanger; she just forgot to put it up. But you forgot something much more important.”

Woman: “What did I forget?!”

Me: *deadpan* “Your manners.”

Woman: *turns bright red and dashes off*
