Pardon me, Ma’am…

Me and my big mouth.  This is my latest and one of my greatest.  Picture me in an elevator full of women, with a young man standing in the corner.  He said to everyone in the elevator, “Excuse me, have any of you ladies caught a buzz?”  There was TOTAL silence.  No one spoke!  So I finally said as clear as a bell, “Ex-CUSE ME!?!?” (with a bit of attitude and head tilt, no less!)  A little more silence, and then very calmly, my co-worker said, “Oh yes, you can catch a bus just in front of the building.”  I was MORTIFIED.  Catch a BUS??!!! No, I am SURE he said catch a buzz.  And before he said it, he was smirking and had a very strange look in his eye. As he left the elevator, I smelled quite a bit of alcohol on him. (Do you see me trying to justify myself??)  I am still attempting to get my foot out of my mouth… maybe I can work on it from the bus!
