One day when women's dresses were on sale at the FarEast Department Store, a dignified1 middle-aged2 man decided3 to get his wife a piece. But he soon found himself being battered4(连续猛击,磨损) by frantic5(狂乱的,疯狂的) women.

He stood it as long as he could; then, with head lowered and arms flailing6(打,用连枷打) , he plowed7 through the crowed.

"You there!" challenged a thrill voice. "Can't you act like a gentleman?"

"Listen," he said, "I have been acting8 like a gentleman for an hour. From now on, I am acting like a lady."
