  • Break the Cutie
  • Really Gets Around
  • Small Name, Big Ego: A common thread among her many jobs was that she always tried to talk them up to make them sound a lot more important than they were. She tried to make it sound like she was the star of a high school play when all she did was raise the curtain. When she was injured in the line of duty as a police officer, she always tried to talk it up as though she took a bullet saving a baby carriage, when in reality she pulled her back after she tackled some fat naked guy and they both fell down the stairs.
  • Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?: She rotated through factory worker, police officer, truck driver, theater actor, diner owner, before finally settling into stay-at-home mom.
