Feeling empowered in FL [View all]

I was chatting with my irrigation guy - pleasant guy in his late 30’s I would guess and a native Floridian - we were discussing how payments were made back in the day pre-credit cards, etc. I said my first credit card was Sears and “did you know that prior to 1974 a woman had to have permission from a male relative to have a credit card?” I said if they keep rolling back my rights I will have to have my grown son vouch for me -haha. He stopped and said I did not know that. And then the conversation went onto something else.
Anyway, I was pretty proud of myself for dropping a little fact about women’s rights for him to consider without getting all preachy as I tend to do. I also have a hard time keeping my temper in check when discussing any political issues.
Going forward, I will attempt to educate instead of rant. 🙄😂
And yes I assume most everyone down here is a right winger.
