Playing the snob

My boyfriend called me a snob today after I admitted to being pleased that I don’t work somewhere like McDonalds. I find quite a bit of (probably too much) satisfaction in being able to say that I work for a “business consulting” company. That label of course works happily until I get back into my Corolla and turn the air conditioning on and off according to revs. Off at traffic lights, off going up hills. I drive a crap car. Apperances are all in my head. It’s fun to pretend.

I start back at MBO next Thursday. I’m on a permenant part-time basis this time, instead of casual which means… (goes and looks the info up to confirm it) that I get annual and sick leave, at still the same rate that I asked for. Best of all, I know that I am going back into a positive working environment, where the work is reasonably varied, I am exposed to interesting business… stuff and have good bosses/colleagues.

    Ohhhh I say the same thing.. about not working at Maccas.. and I have the same feelings as you. But the feelins are short lived as I remembered that I once applied to work there and was rejected. If that doesn’t shoot down a persons ego, I don’t know what does?

    How is working somewhere un-crap and liking it snobbish Geoff?

    I’m glad I don’t work at Maccas either.

    Hey, I’ll join that club!!
    I’m also extremely grateful to not work at macca’s…and to go and add shallow to my self description, I’ve always thought those maccas uniform pants would be incredibly unflattering on me. 😛
