Getting Old Story

Once, when I was a senior in high school, I overheard two kids talking about comics while riding the bus. They were super-geeks, getting into the deep weeds on John Byrne versus Frank Miller etc. I was about to interrupt to correct them about something when of them turned to me and said “Excuse me Mister, do you have the time?”

I was crushed at being called “Mister” then and this was almost 20 years ago.
