Another great reason that she'd find for getting out of Dodge is the condescending way in which John hoodwinked them all into the poorhouse. He, after all, thought so little of her that he bribed her into compliance like a recalcitrant child. It's only with great reluctance that John ever tries to look at things from anyone else's standpoint and when you factor in his belief that women and rational thinking don't mix, the smug, oily grin on his face gets easier to understand. Since she's been kept too busy over the years to develop any real outside interests, she's started to believe his patronizing bullshit. Not only that, she's fallen for his lie about not being totally self-serving. When push comes to shove, though, you can bet that the dork will do or say something that reminds her how low his real opinion of her is. Once she reminds herself how full of crap the douche in the conductor's outfit is, she'll finally rid herself of his worthless presence.
