    On Being a Geezer

    I purchased my regular drink at Starbucks and headed for the door. My exit was blocked by an elderly looking gentleman on the outside of the door who had his hand on the door's pull. The geezer didn't know I was waiting on him to enter the coffee house because his head was turned away from the door; he was watching his wife as she approached, waiting to open the door for her.

    I always look for the comedy in life, so as I waited I laughingly wondered to myself just how long I would have to wait for "pops" to get out of my way before I could make my exit. The elderly move at a snail's pace you know. Hah!

    Moments later his wife arrived at the door, he opened it for her, and they made their entrance. Upon entering the establishment the old-timer realized he had been blocking my exit, he spoke up and said "I'm sorry sir".

    Sir! He called ME sir! What irony. It seems the gentleman who I thought looked like a geezer thought I was his senior! That makes me the geezer!

    What a way to start my morning .

    It might not be an age thing...many older gents from a different generation refer to eachother as "sir" (when they don't know eachother) as a complimentary greeting/salutation--one gentleman to another.

    But if you like, we can call you Geezer George!

    Actually, I think what we have here are two older guys who both have a younger self image of themselves. We saw one another as being the older person. Anyway, I thought it was humorous.

    When I was twenty I was called a lot of things and I deserved most of them.

    Cute story George!

    Don't blame you for being offended Jen & Lily - being called "maam" sucks even when you are one! LOL!

    That is one thing I had to get accustomed to down here in the south is the "Ma'am" and "Sir." I'm starting to say it now, and I don't realize it most of the time! The teachers down here will tell you to call them "sir" or "ma'am." Being from CO, that was like Teachers in CO don't care and you say "Yeah, what, yes." LOL I'm converting and it's sad.
