Italians Quoted #6


"Signorina, would you like to take my seat?"

-Very sweet, very old lady (the kind with a cane and a head scarf) on the bus offering me her seat. Can you believe that she offered me her seat? What does it take for a fragile elderly woman to offer her seat to another person fifty years her junior?

What can I say? It must have been the turkey neck...

I would have helped sooth her inner child or used whatever other relevant psychological argument and taken that seat. Did you?

I think it's sweet. Maybe she thought you needed to get off your feet. LOL

I hear from some older folks that the day a young lady offers you her seat on the bus, it's a very sad over-the-hill milestone. Maybe the lady was trying to prove she was still young.

Clearly the lady has read your blog, recognized you, and was hoping to convince you to review a bottle of Barbera D'Alba on weekly wino.
