When is it ethically correct to punch a lady…

And I’m not just talking about a playful little prod into the stomach here ๐Ÿ˜ก

Answer…

When the lady in question has just bagged up her shopping at the end of the supermarket checkout and started to saunter off home, leaving behind on the conveyer-belt a small packet of chewing-gum. As I’m next in line I spot the packet instantly and ask who’s it is…

‘Oh it must be that lady’s’ the checkout girl informs me.

A few shouts down the shop fall on very deaf ears, so despite the fact that I have shopping of my own to buy and a rather heavy Sawyer under one arm I set off in pursuit, shouting as I go. The lady is well into the car-park when I exhaustedly catch her…

‘Hi, you left your chewing-gum at the checkout,’ I inform her and hand over the packet.

Without even uttering a single word, let alone a thank-you, the ‘lady‘ just nods down towards her shopping bags for me to drop the packet into ๐Ÿ˜ฏ I do so and she simply turns and continues on her merry way… Without even a single word ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

So I ask again… When is it ethically correct to punch a lady (very hard)?
