Miss Manners Suggests Warning Words. [Mar. 24th, 2006|09:54 pm]

"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

these words are best said in an old southern accent:
"ah beg yower paaarden"
accompanied by that oh so sweet smile of yours, a slight tilt of the head, and one decided blink revealing piercing (yet ladylike)eyes that spell out "you do not want to cross me"

warning: this only works in the south where it reminds men of their pistol handling grandmothers, and women of the horror stories their mamas told them about pistol handling grandmothers.

tip: this always works better if you are wearing a string a very real pearls and a dainty skirt.

Re: lol

I love dainty skirts!

Ican't wear one right now though. I have two skinned knees.

I'm such a little girl.

Re: lol

They are cute on some people..I'm sure you're one of them..but I just dont' think it's strong enough for image. I KNOW it's the sweet but deadly contrast..but dainty is just too weak to me.
