Remember When for June 17, 2014
115 years ago
Susanville women were advised to pay their own carfare when others would pay theirs under similar circumstances. Women should always pay their own way when visiting. When meeting friends or business associates, they should not offer to pay her fare or allow her to pay yours. And don’t argue about it! A businesswoman never lets a businessman pay for her fare.
The social man or woman has met by chance and must be dealt with tactfully. A woman should offer to pay her own way boldly and briskly, but if the man argues the question, as a matter of self-preservation, by all means, let him squander the nickel!
