Ask Aunt Gabby

Dear Angry Arthur

Dear Aunt Gabby,

  I'm really ticked off!  I was at a lovely restaurant in Annapolis recently, and after I drank a mug of beer, I decided to approach the bar again and ask for another mug.  Welllllllllllllll, as I passed this one table, I started to burp and I apologized to the couple sitting there.  Immediately, like a Jack Rabbit, the man sprang to his feet and yelled out, "HOW DARE YOU BURP BEFORE MY WIFE!"  Despite my many apologies, he would not accept them.  Gee, Aunt Gabby, all I did was burp!  But, I'm still angry and would have liked to have a catchy comeback.  Any ideas??

Dear Angry Arthur,

  I'm sorry that man didn't accept your apology.  How frustrating when you were trying to be a gentleman!  Had it been me and the man had yelled at me and shouted, "HOW DARE YOU BURP BEFORE MY WIFE" I would have looked him in right in the eye and said, "Sorry, Sir!  But, I didn't know it was HER turn!"  How's that?  Perhaps it will work for you next time!  Have a nice day!  Aunt Gabby
