As some of you know I have 32 fleeting minutes of happiness during lunch, which has been eaten up again and again by the same especially badly dressed student- and I finally thought I would rather have the dark nothingness. Have a nice life without me fuckers. //The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
After Joël has left Anita turns her phone back on. There are several missed calls from George, and one text asking if she’s okay. A voicemail message from her boss asking her to go in and sign some papers so he can grant her long service leave. Another voicemail message from Saffy, asking her where she is. She rings Saffy and tells her that she decided not to go back to work today. And that she spent the night at Joël’s. Saffron: Shut up! Weren’t you supposed to be having dinner with that other guy? The one with the motorbike? Anita: Yeah, I did. But…I had to face facts. It wasn’t really working. We just weren’t compatible. Saffron: Wow. I just can’t believe Joël took you back.
