Anyone else find the admonition to 'not be late' in this spot odd at best and most probably noxiously patronizing? How bizarre! What, does Anna think that 'regular people' can't be punctual or something? Is there some secret connection between income or fashion sense and the ability to be on time to a political fundraiser? What a raging non sequitur.
