Eden is where the trendy little humorless bimbos we loved to hate in high school end up. It looks like The Gap showroom, not an agency. Also, all the girls have that ever-so-slight affected Valley Girl drawl, similar haircuts and expensive bronzers which make for a pretty funny scene. I'm a comedian and my imagination wrapped itself around the endless posibilities!

I interviewed there for receptionist jobs, but never worked for them. They asked me to be on stand-by for almost two weeks, but nothing ever happened. I called them for work but my counselor was ALWAYS unavailable and calls got put into voicemail. It was pretty clear they didn't want to work with me for whatever reason. I can accept that.

Two week later, after I'd forgotten about them, they called me, out of the blue, for a job. I called back to get the details. There was a big moment of silence. She then put me on hold for a few minutes. The couselor came back and said oops, they'd called the wrong Deborah! She quickly got off the phone without an apology or anything.

Then two weeks after that they left me a voicemail message asking if I could do a job. They decribed it and asked me to call back ASAP. I returned the call literally within five minutes of their leaving the message. In that five minutes, they'd given the job to someone else.
