I'm gonna pass on this one....

I got a pretty interesting email yesterday.

Being on all the job boards that I am my spam/junk mail has just tripled. And not all of it gets caught in the filter. Add to that I really need to open everything that isn't obviously junk, just in case, and well, I'm reading a lot of shit.

So I sat down last evening to weed through some of it and came across this:

Dear Tammi,

Are you interested in helping people and making some money? If so, is looking for you to become a Mars Venus Relationship Advisor/Coach.

Applicants will receive extensive training on material from Dr. John Gray 's fourteen books, including Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Coaches receive calls at the phone number of their choice and must be available to accept calls 20 scheduled hours per week, and at least ten of those must be between Friday-Sunday.

*emphasis mine*

OK - the only thing funnier than me working as a relationship counselor are the folks who want me to work as a financial adviser. My idea of managing money is to simply make more than I spend - and sometimes I have problems with that. Yeah, that won't be a career I'd really excel at.

Anyway - me? As a relationship councilor?? I chuckled over that ALL night.

I can see it now, Miss Know-it-All helpin' these poor strugglin' folks try and find love. I'm the one with the tinfoil hat!! Remember my date with Ghingus Kahn and the other adventures in dating????

Add to that the fact that I seem to be a bit "old fashioned" in my thinking and well - that's just a disaster waiting to happen. I may just become one of the Top Ten Most Hated Women in America.

Yeah, two things you DON'T want my advice on - money and love. If you only knew............................
