A colleague (we'll call her Judy) and I, who have both been off with the flu and are still feeling lousy, had to attend a meeting on the other side of the city. Just as I was walking out of the office I got a call asking if I could give a lady a ride. I said sure, got directions and told her we would pick her up.
So off we go, thumping headaches and all, pick up the 3rd lady and proceed down the freeway.
The radio was on NPR but so low that I forgotten it was even on. Apparently the lady Judy and I had picked up on the way heard something that set her off. She began ranting about 'how could people be so stupid to vote for Obama because he was going to .......bla bla bla. When neither Judy nor I responded, she whipped out her talking points and asked us 'are you better off than you were four years ago?'
Before the woman even had the words out of her mouth, Judy turned around, glared at her and asked 'if the Republicans take all your rights as a woman away, will you be better off in four years?'.
Only Judy and I drove back to the office together. Apparently she found another ride.
I hope it was something that Judy said.
