Politely Declining To Be Polite

| Related | November 25, 2016

(I am shopping with my parents and sister at a local mall. Mother and Sister have ducked into a shop, while Father is walking ahead.)

Me: “Oi!”

(My father turns and I motion for him to join us in the shop, which he does. Once inside my mother lectures me for speaking to my dad in that way. Later, in a different shop, I want to show my dad something. I walk up to all three of them.)

Me: “Dad.” *Mother and Sister turn to look* “Hey, Dad.” *still nothing* “Dad!”

(He finally turns.)

Me: *to my mother* “See, this is why I’m not polite to him. He answered to ‘Oi’ straight away.”
