When did I become a sir?

Forgive me it's Friday and I am a little upset because I found out that Courtney Love is still a drug addict so my blog material is kind of weak today.

As I am waiting in line at the dining experience known as The Panda Express a woman in front of me says, "Sir you can go ahead. I am going to be awhile."
For the most part that statement is pretty harmless but it just boiled my balls because this lady is a good 10 years older than me.
I was dressed in my work clothes, which is business professional, so I did kind of have that suburban superstar look about me but for for the love of tuna fish sandwiches I don't want to be a sir. Sirs are old people and that ain't me.
I don't feel that old, I don't look that old and I am not that old.
So I have decided that I want to be called dude instead of sir. It just sounds better. For example, "Dude you can go ahead of me" or "Dude can I help you?"
Oh, screw it, I will let dialogue from one of greatest movies ever explain how I feel.

"Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not "Mr. Lebowski". You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing." -- "The Big Lebowski" (1998)

Have a good one.

Hey, you have it good being called sir. People call me ma'am all the time. Dickheads.

Good job quoting one of the best movies ever! I LOVE Big Lebowski.

"Dude" works for me. It's such a versitile word, as Baseketball proved to us.

I can't believe she's still a drug addict!
