A burning question…
Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Because I’m buried in familial duties at the moment, I’ve been a slacker. My daughter has problems with her pregnancy and may deliver sooner than we all thought. The four-year-old had her tonsils and adenoids removed yesterday and is making sure that everyone feels as miserable as she does.

So, I’m leaving you with a question to answer. I’ll tell you my answer tomorrow. Bet you can guess what kinds of questions I get. :mrgreen:

When people find out what you do for a living, what is the most typical question that they are likely to ask you regarding your job?

    Ooh, a sexy librarian. Do you wear your hair in a bun and wear cute glasses and pencil skirts? LOL

    Nothing. 🙁 I stay at home right now with my youngest. I usually hear “Oh I did that too until mine started school.”

    When people find out I work in Financial Aid, their first question is usually a joking ‘Can you get me free money?’ followed by a more serious ‘Can you help me with my loans?’

    Love that name. One of my SILs is a Deirdre. Sexy librarian, huh? *snicker* So do you wear glasses and wear your hair in a bun?

    Wait until the kids are old enough to bring home their teenage friends. I was the cool MILF.

    Can you help me with my loan?

    You were all wonderfully game. Of course, I get “the look” and then sly questions about where I learned so much about sex, and did you actually ever try that position on page 76?

    What a fun thing to do! Committing to something creative is such a leap of faith but tremendously rewarding.

    When people find out I am an executive assistant, their eyes glaze over and I hear comments like, “Isn’t that boring?”, “Do you need an education to do that?”.

    the answer to both is “YES, now go away.”

    Right now I’ve the luxury of staying home with the kids, so I get either, “Wow, what do you do with all your free time?” or “Wow, lucky you!” 😉

    😮 You answer 911 calls? Cool! What’s the strangest call you’ve ever gotten. Believe me, I’ve gotten some doozies in the past 15 years.
