Can't you make yourself invisible to certain people on Facebook chat? As an Old, I never use it, but if you can that solves it.
But I disagree with the gift-giver advice. You tell your boyfriend, "I love it, but I've realized I'm not going to have a lot of opportunities to wear it. Do you mind if I exchange it for some work clothes instead?" Done. Spilling something on it on purpose is just dumb.
@Eva@twitter YES YOU READ MY MIND...SCROLLING! I got so very very happy when I saw this post!
Amazing! I did not do one, because it would have been sooooo boring.
HA HA HA HA, 60 mile fun run, ha ha ha ha ha, oh my lord.
Cafetiere = French press.
@Eva@twitter UNLESS my intern-theory is correct and one of her friends put her name on a fake letter! I'm sticking with this.
@Eva@twitter I would maybe believe you, except your picture is RIGHT THERE, beautiful.
@cherrispryte That's silly. Everyone knows that people who send only a headshot rather than a full body shot ARE fat. Have you never done internet dating?
@feartie I also tend to look odd in photos, but several jobs have required a picture in the application. I'm really not sure why, unless it is some way to subtly ensure that hiring quotas are met (but then they ask M/F and race, so what they think I will lie?). Or maybe the quota is actually for hair color or fashion sense? (Employers, please, I will dye my hair and wear different clothes, if only I have money from your salary!)
@Eva@twitter I do that, but I thought it was sort of...I don't know, forward, egotistical, to put a mug shot in with the CV?
