RENT AND IDIOT-True Story

RENT AN IDIOT

INT. TARGET STORE BURBANK CALIFORNIA - DAY
(RENT A COP, STEPHANIE)

STEPHANIE ATTEMPTS TO LEAVE STORE HAVING NOT PURCHASED ANYTHING

RENT A COP
Excuse me, can I see your receipt?
STEPHANIE
I don’t have a receipt, I didn’t buy anything.
RENT A COP
I need to see your receipt. (THEN) Ma’am.
STEPHANIE
I don’t have one.
RENT A COP
You can’t leave until you produce a receipt.
STEPHANIE
What?
RENT A COP
I need to see your receipt ma’am. What is it that you are not understanding?
STEPHANIE LOOKS AROUND TO SEE IF ASHTON KUTCHER HAS REVAMPED PUNK’D, BUT SEES NO ONE.
STEPHANIE
(SHAKES HEAD) Are you being serious?
RENT A COP
Of course. (THEN) Ma’am
STEPHANIE
Do you see any bags?
RENT A COP
No.
STEPHANIE
Okay then, you can clearly see that I haven’t bought anything.
RENT A COP
I need to see a receipt before you can leave the store.
STEPHANIE
So tell this to me like I am a two year old. In order to leave Target, I have to buy something?
RENT A COP
(LAUGHING) No, that would be ridiculous. (THEN) You just have to show me a receipt.
STEPHANIE
Okay. (THEN) Would you like to search my purse?
RENT A COP
I can’t do that ma’am. Just show me your receipt and you can leave.
STEPHANIE
I don’t have a receipt.
RENT A COP
Well then you can’t leave. I can’t let anyone leave until I see their receipt.
STEPHANIE
So I have to go buy something?
RENT A COP
If that’s the only way for you to get a receipt, then yes.

    No?

    My God, that man deserves to get tasered for being so stupid! Or maybe he was just taking pleasure in being obnoxious? Or maybe Target is suddenly losing tons of money?

    It's a little funny, though. Heh.

  2. I know right?
    I figure probably he was knew and they told him to stop every one and he just wasn't on the ball enough to think about what he would do if someone didn't have their receipt. :0)

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …
