Penny may be the most normal member of the gang on The Big Bang Theory, but Mrs. Leonard Hofstadter has made her share of blunders.
Nobody’s perfect, but Penny from The Big Bang Theory was created to be this “perfect” vision of a woman. She’s blonde and tanned; and was able to get along with a group of people she wouldn’t typically hang out with. She was the perfect package. But she is also a human so she has made a few mistakes that we all can learn from.
However, being seemingly perfect has its downsides. Not many people take Penny seriously and judge her for being a beautiful woman dating a brilliant man. She may not be a genius like many of her closest friends; but she has more common sense than a few of them, which gets her into trouble sometimes. After watching Penny grow for the past 12 seasons, we’re taking a look at 10 of her biggest mistakes and how we can learn from them.
LEAVING YOUR JOB BEFORE FINDING A NEW JOB IS STRESSFUL
Penny moved to LA from Nebraska looking for fame. She went to try many auditions however nothing truly happened to it. Following quite rejections, she chose to put all her attention on acting and quit her place of employment at the Cheesecake Factory.
While her thought was excellent, she actually had bills and lease to pay. How could she anticipate earning enough to pay the bills assuming auditions didn’t turn out well for her? Leonard attempted to warn her however she followed up on nature and quit in any case. Having a new job before to stopping your old work makes for an easier financial change.
WORKING WITH YOUR EX ISN’T GOING TO MAKE YOUR HUSBAND HAPPY
Penny may have more common sense than Sheldon or Howard, but sometimes she totally ignores common courtesy in search of what’s best for her. In the 10th season, Penny wasn’t happy with her job as a pharmaceutical sales rep, which is why she became excited when her ex-boyfriend Zack offered a job at his marketing company.
The mistake wasn’t working with her ex, her mistake was not talking it over thoroughly with Leonard and making sure he was okay with it. The job eventually fell through but it did cause a few disagreements in the couple’s relationship. Working with exes can be tricky and should be handled delicately if in a new relationship.
WORDS CAN BE HURTFUL…
Being careful with your words sounds like a warning given to children, but it’s something adults would do well to consider too. Thanks to Penny’s pretty appearance and sarcastic tone, she gets away with most of her insults, but there are times when they’re taken to heart and she’s left in an uncomfortable situation.
Instead of having a proper conversation in the second season with Howard about his perverted behavior and how uncomfortable he makes her feel, Penny explodes and says he’ll “grow old and die alone.” This realization sent Howard into a small depression. Her blunt honesty was also taken to heart by Amy when she told her she didn’t like her wedding dress choice.
..LIES GET YOU IN DEEPER TROUBLE
When Bernadette was pregnant for the first time, she asked Penny not to tell anybody at work because she didn’t want to be viewed differently. Penny promised she wouldn’t. But when news got back to Bernadette that some of her co-workers knew about her pregnancy, Penny swore she didn’t tell. As soon as Bernie left, she admitted to Amy that she was the one who told everyone because she can’t keep secrets. This broke Bernadette’s heart, and she kicked Penny out of her office.
NOT INVITING FAMILY IN BIG EVENTS
Was it selfish of Penny and Leonard to steal away? They didn’t have any of their dearest friends around to celebrate and they didn’t tell their parents until afterward. Of course, individuals might have watched the wedding online yet they just educated their dear companions regarding it. At the point when Leonard’s mom Beverly looked into the pre-marriage ceremony, she was shockingly disturbed that she wasn’t welcomed or told about the much participated day. This surprised Penny despite the fact that it seemed like good judgment to tell your folks and parents in law about a wedding.
