No Empathy

I tried saying everything I conveyed in my last blog to another taxi driver that was struggling with my overweight luggage (still in the UK, on the way to the airport).  After pausing slightly after hearing me say that the extra weight consisted of goodies for my volunteer boyfriend in Kenya and the deaf children he is teaching, the taxi driver without empathy or humor commented, “Hmmm, are you saying your boyfriend is in this luggage?”  So I guess even the truth didn’t help, bummer.
