Beverly, the store’s manager, started working at the dry-cleaners as a teen mom. After being knocked up by her boyfriend, who shortly thereafter was killed in a motorcycle accident, she was forced to take on a tremendous amount of responsibility at a very young age. Now in her mid-thirties, she’s been the store’s manager for well over 20 years, and, after dealing with a constant barrage of irate customers, she’s all but given up on her life, her job, and the responsibilities that come with it. Thus, she relies on her employees to run and operate the store. She’s emotionally damaged, easily frazzled, and at times delusional and out of sorts, but is revitalized when Melissa, the store’s newest hire, is introduced into her life. Beverly tries desperately to fill the void created by her daughter’s absence by trying to get Melissa to move in with her. But Melissa wants nothing to do with this.
A great deal of comedy comes from Beverly’s inappropriate admissions and unusual interest in Melissa.
