S1E8 (follow-up): The Fight

A follow-up to the last post: It’s no secret that there was no love lost between Carla Tortelli and Diane Chambers. Name-calling, verbal spats, and practical jokes were a common occurrence between the two close-knit enemies. But on the day that Carla wore that perfect geometric tee, things got physical.

It started innocently enough:

Carla: Listen, Pencil-Neck, you’re startin’ to get on my nerves.
Diane: Please don’t call me Pencil-Neck. I am not a pencil-neck.
Carla: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to call you Pencil-Neck, Gozzle-Head.
Diane: Name-calling. The last refuge of the mono-syllabic.
Carla: I don’t know what that means but I heard “slob” in there.

But later on, more insults were exchanged and tensions heightened:

Carla: You wanna be my friend? Let your hair down!
Diane: How about I take your hair and scour the sink with it?
Carla: Is that a brillo shot?
Diane: Only if it offends you.
Carla: You sound like a lady who is getting tired of her teeth!
Diane: I’m tired of your teeth and all the vermicelli in between!

And thus…


At no more than five feet tall, the little spitfire, the beloved namesake of this blog, Carla had to be restrained. Gotta love her!

    So .who would like to offer me a job and transportation?! I went to post- srnacdoey for something I absolutely love and can’t find a job in my field if my life depended on it (even when I had access to reliable transportation). Now I’m stuck in this black hole that is Norfolk and can’t afford to get out .. and can only work where I can walk to, or car pool.And no, I am not collecting EI .or any other form of assistance ..but I’m finding most of the comments on here to be beyond repulsive.And I’ll be interested to see how this plays out in a few years: – How many more people will be on Welfare -How many more will be claiming for disabilities -How many more will be using the food banks -How many more people will lose their homes -How many more offshore workers will be here -And how this is going to effect the seasonal employers/employees who I’m betting will either have offshore workers, or employees who are being forced to be there and really don’t give a rats a$$. And yes, we have people who work in the agricultural sector that get 2 or 3 months in the summer off ..and are still expected to be on call if an order happens to come in etc etc. If they want the job, they are expected to be available. Best of luck to them finding a second job that’s willing to work around that especially for those who only have agriculture working experience and are in their 50 s or 60 s. Those people are going to get screwed.And many people around here only make minimum wage ..so how are they supposed to be able to afford to drive 2 hours a day to work? Heck, I’d bet that many people who are already only making minimum wage don’t even have a vehicle that’s reliable enough to be driving 2 hours a day ..especially in the winter.I’m not even sure why employees would be keen on these changes. Yes, they’ll be hiring local ..but who really wants someone to work for them when you know they don’t really want to be there. I’ve had several successful interviews for minimum wage jobs .and not one offer ..presumably because they’re all well aware that if I find a job in my field I’ll be gone in heartbeat ..which would be true.It doesn’t even remotely surprise me that most of the Norfolk youth who head to college and university never come back. Why in the world would they? There’s no opportunity here and it’s becoming less and less by the day. Frankly, at this rate ..my post-secondary education was a complete waste of time and money which is sad and a shame to find something you’re extremely passionate about and then not be able to pursue it.Good luck Norfolk. I think this whole thing is going to backfire disastrously.
