Default I doffed my cap to a lady this morning....

She turned and smiled, as I extended my arm and let her into the lift first this morning

I believe doffing ones cap, is a manner from time gone by, and old fashioned manners should be brought back into fashion, cos there are some really rude, arrogant, obnoxious arseholes in this place

...not quite as good as sex though is it? One or both of you should feel cheated .

Did you know though that a woman smiling at you is her way of telling you that she'd like a spin on your pork sword because she finds you attractive? After she's "shared" her life story with you of course .
