Miss Tastrophie has been around. At least in the terms of her careers. In previous lives she has been a secretary - want to know who knows all the company dirt? The secretary. Trust me people, do not piss her off, because the secretary can turn your life to a living hell with the flip of a Rolodex. A waitress - where she learned that she really was not meant to serve the masses. You want your order right and not to get charged for drink refills? Be nice to the waitress. You want a watered down scotch & soda - piss her off. You want to afford oh so cute Coach handbag - get another job. A bartender, but that didn't last long - something about the vodka being for the patrons, not the bartender to suck down with her ho-ho's during her many "union" breaks...whatever. A personal assistant - ditto to the secretary thing here. And a health information systems analyst - yeah, it was as boring as it sounds, but the perks and pay made up for the "dork" factor. Plus, it put Ms. Tastrophie in too cute hand bags and shoes for several years. But for the past three years, Ms. Tastrophie has been living a different, sensible shoes and handbag life as a teacher...and I FREAKING LOVE IT!!!
So recently I was sent the following little tidbit of humor that I found slightly appropriate for dealing with those snug @$$ people who don't realize that if it wasn't for some poor teacher way back in their life; they wouldn't be so smug. I don't know who wrote it, but they are forever in the heart of Ms. Tastrophie - 'cause you know she loves a good comeback.
