I'm really, really not looking for work

by Suw on July 25, 2005

I never knew that to some people, 'looking for work' == 'being a hooker', but apparently so:

“I just thot you might like some feedback from someone else w/ a lotta time on their hands. The Welsh emphasis caught my eye, tho I would imagine you're much better at singing than Geology. I was saddened (a little) to learn yu are looking for work, because it seems so universal & a lesbian I met yesterday, looked for work (she claims) only went to hooking to make ends meet. Around here, (mtns of North Carolina), there are tons, no wait, tonnes of young people looking for work, I think. They carry skate bds, and wear raggedy clothes, & appear to be unbathed, but you appear more employable in yr picture, I am past employment, soon to be 74 yrs, retired in '94 but if I hear of anything, you may be among the 1st to know.
“I don't think hooker is a good option.”

I'm touched that one of my readers, somewhere out there on the hinternet, felt moved enough by my plight to email me this caution, but can I just make it clear that on any blog posts or websites wherein I may have said 'I'm looking for work' I don't mean 'give me enough money and I'll shag you'. I mean, I'm a freelance, and I'm open to offers.
Oh, wait, that sounds worse…

Welsh? Hooker? Nah, love. You're more a fly-half. Nimble, you see.

Suw,
Aren't you glad you don't appear 'unbathed'? Not really sure why you would be better at singing than geology, though. Too feminine?
When I was doing my engineering undergrad, I was always amazed at the job interview questions asked. “We've never had a woman in the plant before, would you mind wearing a hardhat?” What, as opposed to a head injury with brain damage when your really big equipment falls on me?

This really made me chuckle, maybe it's because you've taken your picture outside by a brick wall. Perhaps you should go for a nice sterile office based pic to avoid confusion ;o)
