On a flight to Florida, Mary was preparing notes for one of the parent education seminars she conducted. The elderly Jewish woman named Rivka sitting next to Mary explained that she was returning to Miami after having spent two weeks in New York visiting her 6 children, 18 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Then Rivka inquired what Mary did for a living.
Mary told her that she was an educational psychologist, fully expecting Rivka to question her for free professional advice.
Instead Rivka sat back and said, "OK. If there's anything you want to know, just ask me."
