I was visiting a friend and put my feet up on her coffee table as many had before.
Her mother announced, “In MY house people don’t put their feet on the furniture.”
“Yes, ma’am, and that’s why I am never going to your house; I don’t go where people don’t make you feel welcome.”
She got mad and stomped out the door.
“Wanda, that was all just for her benefit. If you don’t want my feet up, just say so. It won’t bother me. I just figured it was YOUR house to decide such things.”
“No, David. Keep them right where they are.”
