The Devil Wears Prada



I know, I know, this book came out FOREVER AGO. Heck even the MOVIE came out FOREVER AGO. I actually saw the movie awhile back.

BUT, I just read the book. I didn't know if I was really going to like it, because lets face it, this thrift store girl isn't that into all those fancy name brands. I get excited by Levi's and Gap!

So I cracked open this book on Saturday night. I spent ALL DAY Sunday reading it. I couldn't put it down! I finally dropped it a few times when I would nod off Sunday night so gave up with a few pages to go. I got up Monday and took the kids to school and came back and finished it up.

It was a great book!

Although I really wanted to reach in and smack that Miranda beotch a few times!! She was sooo mean.

I had a boss like her one time. She wasn't quite as bad but she was BAD!

My friend had got me a job as her "replacement" during the week at this real estate office as a receptionist. It paid GREAT compared to my current job. So I gave my notice and started over at the RE office.

OH MY GOD. The woman was such a high stress yeller. At one point I remember she came in and was yelling "WHO MOVED MY FUCKING FLYERS" about her flyers on the wall. Thank God it wasn't me. Another time she was all worked up about something and turned to walk away and she had actually wet her pants!

I would drive to work in the morning and would get sick to my stomach just thinking about how it was going to be when I got there. After about 2 weeks of working there I called my old boss and begged for her to take me back! Then I had my friend tell the new boss lady that I just couldn't hang because I was too scared to call and tell her myself lol.

So I can definitly relate to how poor Andrea felt working for Miranda, only her stress was about 100 times what I had to deal with!

Now I have to go find the movie so I can watch it again.



OH and I have a copy of this book! It does have a little bit of wear but lots of life left in it. Would you like it?? Just leave a comment and I'll draw a winner next Monday!

I loved this movie! Meryl Streep is the bomb. I've never read the book, so count me in. I've been really fortunate not to have any psycho bosses in the many jobs that I've had. I've had some psycho employees though!

Just saw this movie, I'm really behind the times! I think I have the book on shelf from a garage sale a while back so now maybe I will read it. THanks
