I don’t remember which movie that was, but there was a scene where a female character is running around the town to get her favorite flavor of icecream. Was it chocolate chip or coffee, I don’t remember. But she had a tough day and she desperately needed it. She rushed from store to store but no luck, and she started to cry like a mad woman in the store screaming why there isn’t.
It was about icecream, but it wasn’t about icecream. I still think this scene is the most accurate portrayal of that feeling.
