Girls and Boys

During our recent New York trip, my sister (a very successful business woman), a friend (a scholar in Germanic Studies) and I (a university professor) went into a bank. An older gentleman came up to us and asked in a playful tone, "So what do you, girls, need?"

All three of us absolutely hated it. Only a misunderstood sense of politeness prevented us from telling him, "Go get us some change, boy."
