Getting around by scooter

A few days ago, I saw a young woman on a small motorized scooter at the mall. She and her girl friend were going in to Starbucks for some refreshments. They were laughing and obviously having a good time. It struck me that as girls together, about seventeen years old, others could see them as they are, a couple of friends on an outing. How different it would have appeared, if the girl on the scooter, was with her mother or father. The dynamic would have sent a different message.
