Thanks for making my day, sir

Late this morning, as I was dutifully visiting one of my favorite clients and attempting to not only secure an order, but also pick up some fresh fish for dinner, I found myself in the middle of a conversation with an older gentleman who was waiting for his rockfish to be filleted.

"How are you today?" he asked, innocently enough.

"I'm good," I quipped, wanting to be pleasant without turning the encounter into a full-blown conversation. "And you?"

"Let's just put it this way," he said exuberantly, "I feel like you look."

"I hope that's a good thing," I blushed.

"You know it is," he smiled. "Have a great day!"

And I am.

That was a great line. I just found your site through Fish's comments. i cant believe the story from the last post! Wow....some guys have no clue. But I totally understand why the apology would be appreciated...and also why you wouldn't want to forget the moment. You are totally right about setting a value for yourself and setting your own boundaries
