lace panty dilemma

Just got a call from the temp agency saying they have a job for me -- at Victoria's Secret.

Now, I do have a bit of a fetish for lacey, pretty underthings, but do I want to spend my days entering the data to keep the website updated so all you ladies can get your hot little number at the click of a button?

I seriously need help here. It would be an indefinite position (meaning I could be there til spring or longer if I wanted) and it pays ok. Or do I wait for something even better? Or do I just leave them in a huff when I get a better gig?

Oh, who knew that women's britches could be so complicated.

Take it and if something better comes along leave it in a huff! That's the whole reason you are (presumably) paid less than a full time employee with no benefits.
Also it's part of the accepted risk employers take when hiring temps. Even better - should Victoria's Secret be annoyed that you left with no notice, you can reply, "Don't get your panties in a bunch!" HAH!

Take it until something better comes along, my friend. You can always give two weeks notice.

two weeks? maybe two days.

and it may be worth it just for that, neil.

I'll leave the career advice to people who have jobs.

So, what I want to know is whether or not you get discounts.

There is something very David Sedaris about all this. I can see it now:
Me Talk Panties One Day.

Hmm David Sedaris is coming up everywhere lately... it must be a sign.


I've been silent lately too. SO. MUCH. WORK. I HATE THE SOAP. I HATE BEING BOSS.
