I feel like I missed something. Upon finishing Scales' piece I found myself scanning back through, looking for meaning. Attractive female becomes fed up with office job, gets hostess job at swanky nightclub, nightclub loses prestige, hostess leaves. Am I missing something?
The anecdotes were fun and the overall piece was light, quick, and fairly entertaining. But I don't feel like I learned anything I couldn't have already guessed about swanky nightclubs. There wasn't a 'big idea' she was driving at, whereas with other pieces in this book had two or three big ideas. This was a year's worth of diary entries condensed into twelve pages. Meh.
