Weekend of insanity- birthday party lasted most of the weekend for teens sweet 16. With a house full of teens I nearly went into shock when 1 xalled me ma'am. I almost instinctively corrected her- they always do on TV, right? My sister later laughed and said it must have made me feel old but I don't think that's what it is...after 2 hours of all of them that was accomplished as good as it got! I think it just felt odd to me. For goodness sake, I'm about as South as the US gets, but we just don't hear it much anymore. And the whole chivalry is dead thing when the guy rushes through the doorway before the girls??? My daughter is right, more often than not lately IF someone tries it results in so much confusion we just lose a bra size in the resulting crush. So guys rest assurred when you really want to keep a younger woman off kilter- the manners will work every time. We have no idea what to do with them anymore!
