I was on a Qantas flight from Perth back to Sydney yesterday morning, after the wonderful bhikkhuni ordination at Bodhinyana. A woman sitting in a seat behind me said to the flight steward: ‘Excuse me, sir.’
He turned and said: ‘Did you just call me “sir”?’
A little surprised, she said: ‘Uhh, yes…’
He paused a moment, then smiled and said: ‘Would you mind doing it again?’
I love Australia.
