Maybe they’re thinking of modern incidents or cases involving calling the manager or the cops. Now that smartphones make it easier for women to make those calls (and other people to record them), people get the impression that it’s mostly women who do this. I agree that people might be less likely to record a white man engaging in this behavior, because historically, they were the ones the women were calling to harm others on their behalf.

Just watched that, and I wish I had the delivery guy’s level of coolness and eloquence when confronted like that! I can only think of the right response half an hour later…
Grace under pressure, indeed.
And another clue to ‘Dick’s’ character is the fact he carries his cellphone in one of those belt holster things - apologies to anyone here who uses one, but they’re so last century!

L’esprit de l’escalier or l’esprit d’escalier (UK: /lɛˌspriː d(ə l)ɛˈskæljeɪ/, US: /lɛˌspriː d(ə ˌl)ɛskəˈljeɪ/, French: [lɛspʁi d(ə l)ɛskalje]; literal translation ‘staircase wit’) is a French term used in English for the predicament of thinking of the perfect reply too late.

Fun fact: a group of Karens and Kens is called “a privilege”
