On a recent trip to a nail salon, I met what would be considered an outlier in the south.
A 10 year-old man-child who was obviously the boss of his family of women, managed the money and the decision-making for the family. The whole situation was like watching a sociological experiment gone awry. At first I thought it might be because the women could not speak English, but language was not an issue.
This little dictator actually handled all the money and the women asked him for permission to purchase items in the store. These women ranged in age from 5 years old to 50 years old.
Rather than asking him for money, I pictured one of the older women in my family lifting his already narcissistic fanny off the chair and giving him a dose of southern style reality known as hickory tea (a spanking).
What is wrong with people? I appreciate different cultures, but could we degrade women any more than having to ask a 10-yr-old boy for money just because he is a male? Give me a break!
