…And She Won’t Even Go Out with Me!

Suit #1: So, you heard who the new VP in my division is?
Suit #2: Yeah. She’s… a character, I’ll say that.
Suit #1: The Brits came to meet with her, and they left looking like… totally stunned.
Suit #2: Yep, she’s a force of nature, all right.
Suit #1: I just can’t believe they’d give her that job… That they want her dealing with all that political sensitivity when…
Suit #2, interrupting: When she’s a maniacal feral wild woman?
Suit #1: And she openly admits that she doesn’t think men should be in this division! She keeps making jokes about how we have no idea what the ladies want, and I’m like, how would she know either? She’s not a lady, she’s a monster!
Suit #2: She’s like a Hindu goddess of fire and destruction!

So Basically All Your Problems Are in Your Head?

Girl on cell: My life totally sucks right now. I went to an intellectual conference and people were saying smart things and I was asking myself, ‘Why can?t I say things like that?!’ And I?ve forgotten all essay-writing skills I learned in high school! Ugh, I am, like, totally ESL right now. Like, what am I doing with my life?! I’m not getting into law school, I’m not going to get a position at the UN… Ugh! I might as well get married to a rich Arabian prince!
