We end the week with Chain-Smoking Bingo Fanatic Frieda telling Elly that if she can't keep up, she should just quit.

(Strip Number 4860, Original Publication Date, 12 September 1987)

Panel 1: The first game of the night begins with the caller telling the players that it's two lines in any direction and the first ball of the night is I-17.

Panel 2: Elly proves Frieda wrong about her being able to handle four cards by taking too long to mark it off before the caller announces that the next number is G-57.

Panel 3: She complains about not being able to keep up as if people are actually going to sympathize with her for being too slow.

Panel 4: When Frieda tells her that if she can't drive in the express lane, she should get off the highway, Thelma laughs.

Summary: This is an on-going problem for Elly. Her ultra-slow reaction time makes it difficult to deal with children and the scary difficult Machine. Also, they're supposed to be 'fair' and allow her time to keep up because she is special and they are not.
