How to Be a Cute Chick and Make People Do What You Want Them to Do With Your Sex Appeal

…and/or money.

When I was a kid, about the same time the following episode of Adam-12 was on TV, my father came home from work and said, “I told her not to buy the hot little red sports car.”

My mother inquired as to what he meant, and he explained that his secretary had purchased a hot little red sports car, and he warned her that she’d get pulled over right away, and again and again, by the cops. And that morning, she was late for work because she was, indeed, pulled over.

I didn’t understand that, and I don’t understand this:

But I’m certainly glad the TV taught me how to be cute and get whatever I want just by using a big bright smile and a cute little dog! Or perhaps the right pair of shoes…

    Since we’re discussing the expectations we grew up with, I’m just wondering why she didn’t get Tazed the moment she jumped out of the car without being told to by the cop.

    I understood it – in a far-off, theoretical way. I was never that pretty, RICH, or ever allowed to be that impolite to anybody! I grew up with CONSEQUENCES! And very full of the thought that I wasn’t important enough to be better than any other human being, and that justice was swift and sure, or at least swift, even if I thought it wasn’t so sure when it aimed my way.

    So: she was naughty, rich, and beautiful. The last two made the first possible. Not my world.

    And to MPL: did they even have tazers back then?

    Admittedly, they did not have tazers. They did have nightsticks though. I’m not sure a cop would want to beat a young woman with a club though (they seem willing to use the tazers on just about anybody lately though).

    Well, things were more casual back then. If someone at a traffic stop in 1968 got out of their car, it was not a big deal.

    I guess she had the wrong shoes. Like anyone saw her shoes.
