In those days, in the suburbs, the larger malls contained movie theaters with two or three screens; not like today where your have multiplexes with 20 or more screens in a separate building…
In this case, they live in a small town, so that town might have had one main street and one mall.
And make more of it at the Café…
At least the tab of the zipper is down, so it won’t unzip accidentally.

Once, I was sitting beside such a person and then I inserted myself into her conversation by making additional snide remarks, she ended the conversation and left the seat…Hooray!
As the father from “The Goldbergs” is fond of saying: “Chaz, you moron!!!”
Yes, all three, that’s how teens talk nowadays. I hear them in the fall or spring, when I’m outside and they are walking by our house on their way to or from school…
Resorting to an ad hominem attack….nice.
My question is why do you resent a pension to which a person has contributed all of their working life? As I said before, the pension isn’t free. That person paid into it. Do you know how much an elected official, for example, pays into her/his pension plan? Do you know how much a firefighter pays into her/his pension plan? Do you know how much a police officer pays into her/his pension plan? Or even a teacher? Your taxes do pay a very low amount per person for those pensions. These people pay taxes too, and they continue to pay taxes even after their retirement. So in the end they pay for their own pensions….
My point originally was that people who have worked in their teaching field for over 30 years should be given a package to encourage them to retire sooner, so that two or three new, with most recent ideas, and less expensive teachers could be hired in their place. I still stand by that comment.
That’s the way she’s drawn.

Now, that’ll stomp the teacher…that’s for sure.
