Auntie Mavis suggested I change my job... she said I should be a lap-dancer!! I pointed out that I was really not a suitable candidate for such a position in physical terms. She said it's ok because "some blokes like fat, unattractive old women". Auntie Mavis is coming to visit my mum for a couple of weeks.... should I go and collect her from the bus station tonight or just leave her there?????

I reckon you may have put this one in the worng place Wizzy! You know where it should've gone, 'cos it sure is quirky enough! I hope you DID go and pick up Auntie Mavis and then made her actually demonstrate how it is that a supposedly "fat, unattractive woman" lap dances! Once she did that, I can only assume that you then put her in her plave by pointing out that you're lacking the credentials to ever give her suggested role any justice. If you haven't done any of this yet, you did say she's staying a couple of weeks, so hopefully she's still there and you can still pull this off!

I collected her... she gave me a bottle of perfume - one that I actually like (& I have used over half of it... well,obviously, given the olefactory nature of my job!) I am not sure if you are being overly flattering or echoing her (& my) opinion of me As an ex-nursing sister, she has told me that our hospital is not being run properly and that I shouldn't be allowed to work there with pink & turquoise streaks in my hair! Furthermore, I am being given the wrong treatment for a medical condition. When she was out shopping with my mum a few months back, she persuaded her not to buy a new kitchen rug saying the one she has is 'lovely'. This time, she walked in & said,'You should get a new rug. That one's bloody awful & looks like someone's been sick on it'. She has a heart of gold really & would do anything for anyone... except boost their self-confidence I guess. There's certainly never a dull moment when she's here!

You get to be on your toes at all times AND you got free perfume! Ladies and Gentleman, I think we have a winner! Why don't you try and colour your hair the same as the rug and see what type of response THAT gets from her?

Yes, my mum has her moments... like telling me I dont have a big bum & then spoiling it by saying, 'your fat is more round your belly...'
