Hey, I once worked in telesales, for about a week! :P People say mean things, it's hard to stay upbeat you know. Would it be better if these people were unemployed, claiming benefits? ;)

Nice Alan! :D

Dotsie, I know how you feel. I used to be one of those "fragrance models" in a department store. Although, I refused to hold a perfume bottle. You might as well be pointing a gun the way some people would react! They were sure that I would spray them no matter what. :roll: I would just hand out the samples or cards with the fragrance on them if we didn't have samples.

I've just spent way too much time skimming through this thread, and :o what a finale! Although minus points for the general lack of high heel shoes... (with a couple of exceptions, although those were not very high either..)
