A new career...?

So, I was waiting for the bus this morning all bleary-eyed and grouchy at the ungodly hour at which I am expected to travel to work, and this elderly gentleman started talking to me, despite FULLY being aware I was plugged into my ipod which frankly is bloody RUDE, but anyway he asked me what I did for a living and I can never be bothered to answer that question fully because it's sooooooooooooo long an answer and even then people never get it, (Yes, I AM the Chandler Bing of Wirral) so I just said 'I work for the Council' and he NATURALLY assumed I was a secretary...bloody old git - how RUDE! GRRRRRRRRRRR! So I was insulted about that - as if it's the only option for a woman nowadays - and THEN he went on to suggest that being a secretary was ' all well and good, but you should really move to London and...'

wait for it........................

'work as a LAP DANCER in the CLUBS. You'd make a fortune'


Happy Friday, y'all!

BFP xxxx

are you kidding? He said that out loud? ok, 2 things...1st, how much do they really make (hhmm....considering, considering, considering) ok, not considering.

More importantly, #2 - he thought you could be a pole dancer which means you must be one hot chic! In some roundabout way, that's a compliment...right?

Thanks for the friday laugh!

chia seeds are more commonly known as chia pet seeds, you spread them on this ceramic shaped animal, water it & it grows sprouts. I won the seeds, now I'm contemplating eat them. eeekkk!

I would take it as a backhanded compliment. :P

"I am the Chandler Bing of Wirral" - love it!!!

Sometimes I get sad that no one talks to me on the tube....but I think I'd rather be left alone than have THAT said to me! heh heh
