    I want to be Lon when I grow up, but I'd never admit it.

    I started going grey when I was 13. Mind you, I did have a hormone imbalance as I also had a full beard by that time (which was also starting to show signs of greying).

    So, I was wondering, being a chivalrous type of 50 something, just how do we approach a lady that may look in need,when truly wanting to help or just open or hold the door for you without getting chastised? And what may we call you instead of Ma'am? Will Princess work? No, how bout Miss?

    This version will get you beaten with a cane. The woman who approached me had no desire to help me with anything, besides, I was walking well & straight & the bundle was in the basket of the walker. She approached me for herself, that she was fishing for a job. Not everyone with walking aids needs attendants, you know.

    I appreciate a door being held, or any other human nicety, and I often offer help myself if I see it's useful. I just didn't like this dame, she wasn't much younger than me & I felt she was calling me 'old'. Just reacted to this 'type' I know well from this neighborhood. I would never hire anyone off the street, to come into my home, with dubious references, if she had any at all.
