So Many Watershed Moments Happen at Banana Republic

(in the Georgetown Banana Republic)
Girl #1: I really love this dress, but I think it’s a tad too short for work. I’m only supposed to be buying dresses for work right now.
Girl #2: Really? It’s not too short for my office. But my boss only hires pretty people, so he likes it when we wear short dresses.
Girl #1: Did you think I’m ugly?
Girl #2: No! Buy the dress and send me your resume.

Model scout, handing out card to hot tall teen: I know you’re probably modeling already, but take my card anyway.
Shorter teen girl to friend, after scout has left: Fuck you. The only reason he gave you his card instead of me was because I’m eating a cookie. But it’s the only thing I’ve had to eat today!

It All Started When I Tried to Separate the Laundry…

Preppy teenage girl #1, before Sex and the City movie: Oh! I heard that Jennifer Hewitt is in this movie!
Preppy teenage girl #2: No, it’s Jennifer Hudson.
Preppy teenage girl #1: Whats the difference?
Preppy teenage girl #2: Jennifer Hewitt is the white actress who made a CD and can’t sing and was in the Garfield movie. Jennifer Hudson is the black girl from American Idol who won an Oscar for that movie with Beyonce.
Preppy teenage girl #1: Are either one of them singing in this movie?
Preppy teenage girl #2: I don’t know.
(long pause)
Preppy teenage girl #3: Speaking of black people, I got in trouble for being racist at work today.
