George and his real-life love story
“When we got married we laid our cards on the table – about what we wanted for ourselves, our children, our future our lives everything. We were not rich – we were middle to maybe middle-upper class- my children went to very expensive private schools where they learned French and German very unusual for a school in Buenos Aires at that time- I worked in international banking. Now it’s all gone in the crash and I am driving this cab sending money to my daughter and son in Brazil when I can.
Carmen – I came home and found my husband in bed with two women – it was the end and now fifteen years later I am looking, I am ready to be married again- I am looking everywhere.
Cashier: Are you sure this is how you want to spend your time and money; consuming I mean?
Customer: Oh well I.. ummm.. I don’t. I don’t know.
Cashier: Why do you come here so often. No family? No kids? Are you alone?
Customer: Did you get my discount card? Always like to make sure the card is swiped.
Cashier: Have you thought much about the future? Where will you be in ten years?
Still, spending lonely afternoons filling your closet with clothes at designer discounts?
