Yes, Sir!

March 10, 2019 | by Aish.com

Three-year-old Moishie Rubinstein had been told several times to get ready for bed. The last time his mother told him, she was very insistent. His response was, "Yes, sir!"

Correcting him, Moishie’s mother said, "You would say, 'yes, sir,' to a man. I am a lady, so you would say 'yes, ma'am,' to a lady." To quiz him on this lesson, she then asked him, "What would you say to Abba?"

"Yes, sir!" came the reply.

"Then what would you say to Mommy?"

"Yes, ma'am!" he proudly answered.

"Good job! Now, what would you say to Bubbie?

Little Moishie lit up and said, "Can I have a cookie?"
