My story was ABOUT talking to someone. That’s what I wrote about. Of course I talked to my other partners too. The point of the tip wasn’t so much for her, but for them. They’re tightwads. Giving her a hundred dollars stung them more than any lecture I could have given.
But really, the point of my story isn’t to relay everything I did that afternoon, but to share something that worked for me in winning over somebody who had been reflexively anti-trans and no longer is.
