Yeah, I was pretty shocked too (obviously). So much so that I couldn't think of any snappy comebacks at the time. My brain just kind of locked up and refused to believe what it was hearing. It took me almost an hour before I realized I was PISSED!

Of course, the Central Valley here is about 20-25 years behind the rest of us in California. It's a fascinating place to be a San Francisco woman; see, if women work at all, it should be in daycare or a typing pool, and it should be because their man is laid up from a job accident or because he is a drunk. Certainly not for self-fulfillment and you damned straight better not be making a good wage. That's sick and wrong, especially if you have children, and God Will Punish You for Abandoning Your Family and Destroying the Fabric of America.
