General Etiquette > All In A Day's Work

Was this Okay?

(1/4) > >>

Morticia:
The other day, one of my colleagues was coming out of the lunch room with both of his hands full. I was coming in so I held the door for him. A man from a different department  made a comment on what a "liberated  woman" I was.  All I could come up with was to look at him steadily and say, "It's 2013, " in what I hoped was a helpful manner. How did I do?

NotTheNarcissist:
That truly sounds like something I myself would have said.....even though I really meant something along the lines of, "Oh, he had his hands full. I was just trying to help."

Alas, I don't think that fast when I'm on the spot.

ETA: to answer your question, yes, you did ok, but i think you & I both need to work on a more accurate response when where on the spot.

Morticia:
I was trying very hard not to ask him what sort of Neanderthal moron he was, since that would be rude.

Only me:
"I was trying very hard not to ask him what sort of Neanderthal moron he was, since that would be rude."/////

See I was thinking the same thing.

LeveeWoman:
"I was raised to treat everyone with respect."
