“Oh Adele, don’t be such a snob,” Gladys said. “I think it’s kind of campy.”
“I sort of agree with Adele,” Arlene said. “The decor does seem kind of kitschy.”
“Campy? Kitschy? Seriously, you two are just being bitchy,” Gladys said. “This is a restaurant, not a gallery. We came here to eat, so shut up and let’s order.”
