"I beg your pardon."

This is the best all-purpose warning that the other person has transgressed. Different degrees of anger can be expressed by it.

"I beg your pardon?"

Asked with raised eyebrows means "You'd better explain that you did not mean what you actually said."

A loud "I beg your pardon!" means "Retreat this instant!"

Or so says Miss Manners... I can't believe I bought this book. LOL

OOoh!

This book I got at a thrift store for cheapand thought it might have some Random info in it, and it's called "Miss Manners' Guide for the Turn-Of-The-Millenium. (Explicit, Practical, and Entertainingadviceon social, business and personal etiquette) written by Judith Martin. :)

It's sitting beside me, can you tell?
