High school. Was waiting with the date at a bus stop to catch a bus to see a movie. She goes "I think that car was my grandfather's". Car stops. It is. He asks her what she's doing and who is this. Waiting for a bus and no one. He offers her a ride. She accepts.
I get to the movie theater. She's not answering her phone. Movie has started. Look for her in each row. Not there. Do not enjoy Sweeney Todd as much as I could have. She calls me later. Her grandfather got lost.
I to this day suspect deliberate sabotage.
Obviously I never go out with her again, right?
Wrong. Off and on again until she tells me in sem she won't talk to boys anymore. Because I was pathetic.
My wife rescued me from myself.
Mind you this is the same girl who showed me that the background on her phone was a (her words) bloody sanitary napkin so I kinda dodged a bullet. Kids, there's a difference between "weird and quirky" and "has serious issues" don't confuse the two
Years later. Wife and I went to a shabbos meal in Washington Heights. She was there. She now talks in an exaggerated accent she very much did not have in high school. Dodged a bullet.

What's infuriating about ami magazine going after Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt is not that ami magazine is gross. We knew that.
It's that, after constantly telling people "no you can't criticize the community when you're not part of it" (not just ami, but a lot of Haredi voices and apologists) and "you need to go through the proper channels"....
That's how they react to someone who has always been a part of the community, defended the community when appropriate, and has largely colored inside the lines, so to speak, starts raising some critiques.
