Wanna know what goes through a Temp's mind when things don't work out in Hollywood? Following is an actual transcript of a conversation between Temp X and a Friend after another Hollywood decision that defies logic.
I'd offer a witty concluding remark here, but there's not much left that can be said other than, "So what? So let's dance..."
Temp X: it's always nice when my temp assignment feeds me blog material on a silver platter
Friend: oh yeah?
Temp X: yep. they won't interview me for an open position, but they've requested me multiple times to fill in and want me to come back for another week
Temp X: i'm good enough to request, but not good enough to interview.
Temp X: logic does not prevail in this town
Temp X: and the person they will hire -- not someone they know
Temp X: not a contact
Temp X: not an anything except a 24 yr old perky blonde
Friend: did they give you a reason why they won't interview you?
Temp X: no
Friend: i mean christ, even if they think you're not right (which is still frustrating), why not just yank your chain and bring you in?
Temp X: i choose not to ask. there's no answer that will be satisfactory
Friend: where are you working at?
Temp X: [Company Name Redacted]
Temp X: i've learned to control my anger and frustration (years of therapy helped me with that). i just channel it in a different direction
Temp X: i blog about it. or use it for material at some point
Friend: sucks dude.
Friend: fuck them.
