Twilight Got Me In Trouble At WorkI used to work in a bookstore, and quite often parents would ask for recommendations or what I thought of a particular book.
When they asked me about Twilight I couldn't help myself. Instead of trying to sell it I told the truth, which is that it was a poorly-written waste of time.
I also used to call Edward "Pedward" for dating teenagers. Think about it, he's around a hundred years old, lives with his "parents", and goes to high school?!
So he hasn't learned or grown at all in a hundred years? WTF? The perfect guy is a pathetic loser? If Edward wasn't a vampire he'd be the star of "Failure to Launch II - The Eternal Adolescent"...
Alright, whatever, uh-huh.
Needless to say I was told to stop discussing the book with customers. Had to revert to making fun of Dan Brown :P
