OverheardI wasn't eavesdropping on a public cell phone conversation (not this time, anyway), this is from an episode of ABC's new show, Notes from the Underbelly.* Cooper, the never-say-pregnant career gal, advises her newly pregnant friend, the series protagonist Lauren, not to quit her job with these choice words:
You can't just drop out of the working world and waltz back in. You'll be the annoying old lady who can't figure out the phone system. And everyone who didn't take five years off to find themselves will hate you for constantly having to tell you, "It's pound 7. #7!"
It's true that if you've taken a few years off of work, you may need some time to catch up with technological advances, but still. The annoying old lady? Ouch.
*not sure when this episode will air
