Here's a deleted [Ed. — But it's right here in my hands?] scene from Girls. Can you relate?
television, jobs, girls, Cupcakes, lena dunham
Say what you like about Lena Dunham, she is excellent at writing believably awful characters.
@darklingplain And she's the best at writing and performing those moments when someone says something strange or off-putting and you hesitate before reacting and the moment just. hangs. there.
I cannot relate, because when I worked in a cupcake shop, all the super cool bakers would hang out in the back and I'd be up front all by myself like a chump folding boxes and trying not to get murdered by brides-to-be and their terrible mothers. CUPCAKE SHOPS ARE ROUGH.
@sudden but inevitable betrayal The other week I was at a cupcake shop (whose brilliant idea was it to put that cupcake shop between my therapist's office and the bus stop, seriously?) and there was a guy standing in the cupcake-working-on area with like 800 unfrosted cupcakes and a giant tub of pink frosting muttering about how much he hated cupcakes.
We had a nice conversation about how one gets burnt out on cupcakes after frosting the zillionth one. It was good times.
@every tomorrow@twitter -I'm willing to take on the challenge of eating a zillion cupcakes and seeing if I ever get sick of them.
I like this scene, because there are free cupcakes.
God. Say what you want about Lena Dunham, I love this show.
Say what you like about Lena Dunham, but hi.
@lilly pilgrim - Can someone tell me what people will say about Lena Dunham?
@KeLynn Let me know if you hear of anything
I love this show, and i thoroughly enjoy following Lena Dunham on twitter, but i suspect that this scene was cut at least in part because most people can't identify with it at all. When have you ever followed up on a resume (especially at retail/service jobs) and been met with sassy honest advice from a cute ragtag group of employees? Never, because you were met with boredom or annoyance or indifference or fake sincerity.
But also: yay, season 2, almost!
@deanna I don't know about that, but I can relate to applying for a job you thought you'd totally be a shoe-in for and getting, "eh, no" in response.
I never got any free cupcakes, though.
