Scene: Couple enters a subway car, sits down and complains about their 40- minute commute home. Girl begins reading a book while the guy reaches into his bag to grab his. Girl spots something in her boyfriend’s bag of which she does not approve…
Girl: Did you steal Splenda packets from work AGAIN?!
Guy: No!…..these are from Au Bon Pain.
Girl huffs, goes back to reading her book.*
(*Author’s note: While I fully support being resourceful and stocking up on free stuff your job or coffee shops provide, the whole scene on the whole was just depressing. I mean, sitting on a train reading Wally Lamb and yelling at your boyfriend for stealing low-cal sugar packets? I’ll pass.)
