Confession: We have teenaged neighbor siblings, brother and sister, whom we hire on occasion. Brother mows lawn, sister baby- and pet-sits. I have been thinking about what I pay them (flat fee for mowing/pet care, hourly for babysitting) and how it reflects my priorities.

I heartily endorse the sentiment expressed by below, verbatim. If you're more offended by her language than by what was said to/about her, then I gently suggest you reconsider your priorities.

So these stories are unfortunately super common & I suspect why so many think this is a rare occurrence. Women end up stepping in for each other a lot. An older woman did something like this for me as a teen, and I make a point to intervene for girls now.

"I wanna see your warrant." "Who sent you? Is this a checkpoint? This isn't a border! I don't have to show you anything!" "I need your name and badge number, I wanna talk to your supervisor!" Hey, white people? Nobody does "I wanna speak to a manager" quite like us. USE IT.

PS- Yes, I know today has been a dark day in a series of dark days. None of my thoughts on these dark matters seemed as much worth sharing as a silly bit about faith and a sock.

If you’re taking suggestions: drench the crap out of it with a jug of Nature’s Miracle and let it air dry.
