Patronizing

David watched the little people in their little lives as they wandered about their little tasks. He grinned, a benevolent lord.

The people browsed, picked up books, movies, CDs for themselves. Some read newspapers or journals. Elderly people sat in their chairs, clicking at the computer. Probably clicking the wrong things, David thought. About to ruin our system, make the world explode.

He chuckled.

“Excuse me?” a voice said from in front of him.

David came out of his reverie, looked up at the younger woman, and said, “Yes?”

“I’m looking for a book.”

“Oh, I couldn’t have guessed.”

“Umm. Okay. Umm. Okay, sorry to bother you.” The woman turned and walked away.

David leaned back, stretching his arms behind his head. Another good patron helped.
