My opportunist pronouns

Reader comment on item: How to Answer When Asked for Your Pronouns

Submitted by Dave (United States), Feb 10, 2022 at 19:57

When I make a mistake at work and someone asks who's responsible, I point and say he or she.
When nature calls and the men's room is occupied, I become she, and use the lady's room.
On the question of who should bear the burden of higher taxes I say they, not I.
When asked, who will pick up the tab for the meal, I say you.
When asked, who are the best people of any country on earth, I say we.
When asked if it's obnoxious when people quibble over pronouns, I say yes, it is.
