Should I Have Gone With "Not a Thang, Shortee"?


For reasons that remain unknown to me, the last few weeks have brought a torrential downpour of Macy's coupons. 15% off, 20% off, 30% off, $20 off of a $22.50 purchase... It was only a matter of time before I turned my rage against the plastic.

On the way up, a girl in the mall elevator called me "ma'am". Which was completely uncalled for. I wasn't dressed in any of my 80's fuddy duddy gear, I was in a hip, a hip hip sweater. I saw her running in the distance and held the elevator door for her and her boyfriend. Then when they came aboard, wet from the rain, he smiled and said thanks, to which I responded, "no problem" (which is what, something that only gramama's say now?!). She smiled at me and added "thanks, ma'am".

Bitch cost me $60 in firming lotion at Sephora.

I guess you're lucky she said thanks at all. You know how young people can be so rude now'a days. Back in my day....

Sorry your Macy's shopping excursion was ruined. I would be so mad if someone ruined my coupon high.

So torn, so torn. It's upsetting, I know, but we are the age our mothers were when they had us, we might be up to ma'am. I would take advantage of the opportunity and tell them to pull their damn pants up.

I got told I look like this professional poker player last night. I got called the same guy at the Luxor when we were there.

Just thought I'd share.

What would you like to be called btw? I know not 'ma'am' but what? "Thanks girlie" "Thanks.....you" "Thanks sweetie" <--i can see that going over well.

Whatcha got?
