MLMM First Line Friday – 

“Well, I didn’t want tea anyway,” as I looked down my nose at the shopkeeper.  What is it coming to these days?  Are there no remnants of common courtesy left?  I have visited this antique shop weekly, and have spent a good deal of money, mind you!  The previous owner was always gracious, offered a warm greeting, a comfortable chair, and a cup of tea.  We would chat a while before he showed me his latest acquired treasures.  I looked forward to coming every week.
Today I entered the shop, was barely acknowledged by the new owner, who obviously had no time or penchant for polite conversation.  I decided I would not frequent this place of business any longer.  As I was leaving I hoped to pique his curiosity with my remark, “well, I didn’t want tea anyway”.
