Funny Little Boy

I got into the lift this morning on my way down to work. It stopped at another floor and a young mother and her tiny little boy got in and this conversation took place:

Mom (M), Little Boy (LB) - Not our LB!

M: Say good morning to Aunty (AUNTY?! Me?? *splutters* What happened to che-che?!)
LB: *looks around*
M: Say good morning to Aunty! *very firm voice*
LB: *turns around to face the wall* Good morning lift
LB: Good morning wall
M: That's very rude! Say good morning nicely! *very firm*
LB: Good morning button
Me: *stifling a smile*

When they went out, I heard the mom telling the little boy, very firmly, to say good morning to the guard and look at him when he was saying it! She then told him that he was very rude in the lift and she was going to have a talk with him on this! And her little son was all but 3 or 4 years old! Well, at least I'm sure he'll grow up to be a well-mannered young man!
