(Strip Number 6010, Original Publication Date, 25 March 1983)
Panel 1: We find Abashed Elly sheepishly telling a quietly furious Beeweather "Um. I'm sorry...I didn't mean to hit your car...look, heh....There's one little scratch on my bumper."
Panel 2: Her attempt to laugh things off by saying that it's a lucky thing that there was no serious damage doesn't get the desired result of his agreeing with her.
Panel 3: He snorts in disgust and walks off, presumably to write a letter to the editor about the idiotic, irresponsible women they're handing licences out to these days.
Panel 4: Since she doesn't know why she's hated, Elly acts like one of her children and declares that she'd rather be yelled at.
Summary: This, I think, defines Elly right here. When she's clearly in the wrong and knows it, she tries to flee from a confrontation lest she have to apologize and thus be revealed as having no power. To paraphrase an old cliche, being a stupid bully means never having to say you're sorry.
