Grosse Point Thystle

Being an accountant has, like, ZERO cool factor. When people ask what you do, and you say "accountant" most of the time you get a "how nice" or an "I hate math!" or something similar. Never shock and awe. Never jealousy. Never, ever a sincere that's so cool.

Henceforth, when people ask what I do for a living, I'm going to say

Professional Dominatrix

Bet they ask for my business card THEN.

I like Accounting Domanatrix....

'I will do your taxes and you will like it, or you will have to recite the entire times table to me while tied up. And then you will beg me to balance your checkbook and I will not do it until I see tears!!!'

it could work..

Accounting really is the biggest conversation stopper.
I usually get the 'oh, you do taxes?'
Um, no. Except my own.
Sometimes I say 'Financial reporter' because anything with financial in it sounds cool.
Numerical landscaper is my other favorite. That implies enough illegality to get people's attention. But sometimes I just go with calculating bitch.

No fricken way! I've often wondered how you spend your day and I'd have put money on just about any other profession.

I think you should go with Jane's Calculating Bitch. It's a perfect expression of fishnets and math.

Do they know about Miss Thystle?

Thank you Mistress Thystle may I have another!

I'm guessing this would put a whole new spin to your favorite expression--which is of course

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

I'm an office manager/hr gal and I get the same kind of ho hum when asked, "what do you do".

From now on Im going to be... a waitress at the waffle house. I bet those ladies have interesting stories.

Miss Thystle said...

AND now you can call everyone "hun" and "shug"! That's a good one!

Those are some rockin' boots! No wonder the boys at the coffe shop are always checking you out -- here I thought it was the rack, but I guess it's the whole ensemble!

Thystle + math = Calculating bitch = AWESOME. (How do you like that equation?!)
