  1. funniest. rant. ever. and in a boston accent? so good, thanks selena. i live in chi town, so i really needed this!

  2. In the story Stop Signs, I was so angry.. how can anyone be so passive?

  3. Anonymous, you should have been angry — as I am when I think back on that time in my life. It’s not healthy or natural to be that passive. We’re made that way by things that happened to us and messages we got growing up. If anything, I want that story to be a message to adults that teaching kids to defer to others and be overly accommodating can have dangerous ramifications. Thanks for listening.

  4. I’m more sad that no one told Julie not to take abuse like that. People can be passive and know when to walk away from a situation if its dangerous. Julie is a very lucky woman since “Ron” never acted on what he threatened. I’m glad physically nothing happened and it was a lesson learned. šŸ™‚

  5. I don’t think Billy’s girlfriend was enjoying herself as much as he seemed to think she was.
