I was reading Marie Claire's story about how George Clooney and his girlfriend Sarah Larson are engaged. While, I don't think they are engaged yet, I do think that my Valentine's Day prediction will come true. I only saw them getting engaged. At this rate, she will already be married and four months pregnant by next February.
While reading the article though it started talking about how they met, and how she gave up her waitress job to be with him, and I'm thinking, "so what?" Then, I read this next line.
"Since Sarah met George she has ditched her £100,000-a-year job..."
Give me a wig and a skirt because I'm off to be a cocktail waitress in Vegas. Is Marie Claire guessing here? Is this like a President trying to guess the cost of a gallon of gas? I want to know who told them she earned $200,000 a year wearing a short skirt and calling out "cocktails" for 8 hours.
She might have earned $200,000 a year, but she didn't do it just carrying around a tray. If waitresses could make $200,000 a year in Vegas, there would be people lined up at the casinos for hours each day trying to get a job. Waitresses would have to have bodyguards because everyone would be trying to kill them. Waitresses who worked downtown would dream of someday carrying a drink tray on the strip while confessing this to the waitress who has lost her looks and is on her way back down the waiting ladder. I don't know who plays the up n comer, but I see Teri Hatcher as the wasted, worn out waitress on her way back down the ladder.
Next stop, Denny's with maybe a stop at Whiskey Pete's.
