I was in a diner the other day talking with a waitress. She turned and said she'd be right back with my coffee and I said, "Thank you, Honey."

The Karen who'd just come in and sat in the booth behind mine eyed me up and down and then said "You toxically masculine, chauvinistic prick."

"Excuse me?" I said, taken aback.

"You patronizing, condescending patriarchal asshole."

"Man, you're really hitting all the feminist code words. Did you just come from a seminar?"

She was still cussing at me when the waitress returned and she saw the waitress's name tag:

"Honey."

    Thanks, Neville and Jamie. I've slipped up on my challenge of posting a drabble every day. I'll try to get back on track.
