It’s a Guy Thing

The attorney called me “Dear” twice before I called him on it. “Oh, ha, ha,” he chortles. “You must be a bit older; I find the real feminists are the only ones who get annoyed.”

[My thoughts redacted.]

He continues, “It’s not a big thing. You know. It’s just how men talk.”

My silence is obviously unnerving him, so he pleads, “No hard feelings, right? I meant no harm.”

“Well,” I respond, “you sure didn’t mean any respect, either.”
