Power Outrage

The other night my friend Lisa had dinner with us. She was talking about an elderly woman who told her, “My sixties were my favorite decade. I didn’t give a shit what anyone thought and I felt totally empowered!”

I said, "Wow, that's great to hear! I can't wait!"

Wes said, “If Debra gets any more empowered she’ll be a sub-station.”

Which makes me wonder: can someone be too empowered? Does Wes think “empowered” is synonymous with “bossy?” And exactly what is a sub-station?
