Down and Out

Once again I am facing the unemployment line and looking for work. At least for this weeks Workshop Wednesday at Mamakats cause the prompt I choose is this one:

2.) You were recently laid off. Instead of moping around, you've viewed it as a chance to start fresh. Pick a new career and write about your first day on the job.

"Damn, this is just great!" I mumbled as I slid over and pushed myself up out of the booth, half stumbling as the alcohol hit me. I got laid off today and I need to find a job fast to pay the mountain of bills I have. What's a girl to do?

I figured I had two options. I could find another job I hated like the last one and end up going no where again. Or I could do something I loved and get paid to do it. What do I love you ask? SHOPPING!!!
So I signed on to be a personal shopper for an agency that caters to big name celebrities. I could tell you who they are- but then I'd have to kill you.

My first day was fabulous honey I got to fly to Paris and
shop for this gorgeous handbag and this fabulous Armini
dress. Then it was on to London where I found this to die for Valentino shoe. I was in heaven and didn't have to die to get there!!!! There is nothing better to a true blue SHOPAHOLIC (and ladies I am one) than spending someone else's money.
After an exhausting day of jet setting all over the world (OK until you have tried getting on and off a private jet in several different countries don't tell me it isn't tiring!), I finally made it back home, kicked off my high heels (bought at Target by the way) and opened a bottle of wine to toast my success in finding a new job.
Here's to picking myself up, dusting myself off and getting out there to do something I love. Who knew that I could take an addiction and make a career out of it?

So if you find yourself unemployed and have nothing else to do , head over to Mamkats and read all the great stories over there. Or better yet, write one.

Ah, if only, if only.
Well, no, I'd probably buy all the wrong stuff and get fired.

I thought about personal shopping also! That would be a great job!

Debbie said...

Is there a job available for me? We could shop together.

Tiffany said...

What a great job you chose!

Shopping in heels? That makes me feet hurt just reading that. And shopping for others? Isn't that a little like buying gifts? Gift buying stresses me out. No thanks. Can I be a professional vodka taster instead?
