Snarky Candiru2

Elly is not Canada's Worst Driver.

The interesting thing is that in two years, Elly will be dealing with a rather annoying problem: a traffic ticket. What happened is that some rich moron with more money than sense thought nothing of passing a school bus on the right like some kind of aggressive dolt and t-boned John's joy wagon. Rather than accept responsibility for it, Trust Fund Timmy blames her for the accident and, well, since he's a rich kid and she's a housewife and policemen in the Foobiverse are unsympathetic civil servants who fawn over criminals while threatening to jail the innocent just for standing up for their rights, she's slapped with an unfair ticket that she has to fight in court. She manages to win the day only to get nailed for failing to feed the parking meter.

The reason that I mention this is that despite the nasty jokes men make about Elly's driving skills, Lynn awarded her avatar a trait she clearly wishes she had herself: fairly good driving skills. She might prefer to drive minivans and station wagons and wishes that everyone drove something safe and practical that can carry lots of groceries and kids but she is fairly adept at driving....unlike Trash Bag Johnny who has a slight tendency to be a lead-foot.
