This illustrates how self-absorbed and superficial Mildred is. Clarisse thinks of other people, she is empathetic to other people's feelings. Clarisse is caught up in herself, she can't think past her immediate wants and needs. Both Clarisse and Mildred are opposites who bring out each others personality.
