How to win friends

'I think you should read the part of the drug dealer because you're rough.'
'Oh yeah?'
'I mean, well, you sound rough.'
(Quizzical look.)
'No, what I mean is ... well ... you're from London.'

I'm thinking of a career change: there must be a diplomatic post in the Middle East for a woman of my talents.

P.S. Fortunately 'rough Londoner' was laughing. I say fortunately because not so long ago his reaction might be have been entirely more physical.

I'm sort of considering a long term career change into counselling, a friend pointed out that the one piece of advice I gave her about her marriage situation some years ago that she acted on led directly to her divorce... hmm maybe we should team up we'd be a sure fire hit don't you think?

I think we could be the 'alternative therapists', furtheron.
