Chicks

A stylist advertising for an assistant just sent me an email asking me my age.  Huh? What chew talkin’ ‘bout Willis?  It was clear in my resume that I had more than enough experience.  So the issue was that she didn’t want an assistant older than she.  RED FLAG.  Insecurity, straight up.

I replied in the email that I never tell my age (who does?) and that I was raised to respect authority.  Great answer, if I do say so myself.  No reply.

It would have been $1,000 for a few days so I’m kind of bummed.  But maybe the headache would not have made it worth it.  I was tempted to lie, I have to say.  That felt too low down and dirty; everything I’m trying to avoid.

In other news, a very good friend, who has been blowing me off for the past  five years or so, is now back in touch.  What changed?  Well, she’s about to get divorced from her husband whom she met through me.  Yes, she blew me off when she met him and now he’s gone.

But that’s what chicks do, they put their man first to the exclusion of their friends. I’m not being self-righteous or even complaining.  I’ll even include myself in that category.  Hell, I might even do it the next time I get me a man WHICH NEEDS TO BE SOON!

"I spent a lot of time looking at the landscape to see what is out there and what other people were doing. I wanted to be sure that I was coming at finance and money topics from a different angle. I love the idea of taking things that are generally boring—sorry, finance is really boring, let’s be honest—and making them entertaining.”
