Texts From My Sister: Special Pop Quiz Edition!

OMG my job, shoot me. Just had 1hr argument about why u can't wear the pants u peed in to the movies. Now I just feel like a bitch.
Hahahaha. And now, the $64,000* question: What is Zoe's job?

[Cue Jeopardy music.]

[*I don't actually have $64,000. If you win you just get to feel superior, which is truly a gift that keeps on giving. I think Gandhi said that.]

[Bonus hint: It's not "Personal assistant to R. Kelly."]

    I bet preschool teachers have arguments like that all the time

  2. She's a mom. Dur.

  3. Ok so I will take a stab at her profession in a moment but what I really have to say is THANK GOD YOU'RE BACK... perhaps it's a glitch you were unaware of, but your blog was UNAVAILABLE for at least the 15 minutes I kept hitting refresh for. It was crushing my day- thankfully I waited an hour and tried again.

    Preschool teacher?

  4. Immediately, of course, my mind went to paralegal. I feel like this is the type of conversation that at some point might be had in my office, but that's only because the partners will work until they die. Realistically, this conversation would happen at any institute for the criminally insane, but they don't go to movies...do they?
    So, obviously, your sister is the assistant, much like Pepper Pots to Ironman, to an eccentric billionaire. Obviously.
    Please make the next pop quiz harder, this one was so simple.

  5. I'm going to guess either:

    (a) she's a nanny

    or

    (b) she works in a home for wayward hipsters.

  6. The Impenetrable Man9:55 AM

    Babysitter/Nanny?

  7. Pop star? Dentist? Fancy shoe designer like in P.S. I Love You? Toy tester like in Big? A lot of people are guessing Nanny but unless it's been previously referenced prior to my wonderful discovery of your blog, I'm not feeling it (Nanny, that is, I totally feel your blog).

    That sounds creepy. Sorry.

  8. Excursion chaperon at a nursing home?

  9. She works with people with disabilities?

  10. that's a tough one. i work at a startup software company, and (1) we have similar discussions on a regular basis, and (2) they don't pay us enough NOT to wear soiled clothing to the movies...although i can't really afford a movie ticket these days. so she probably doesn't work at a startup software company. i give up.

  11. A doula or a fraternity house mother.

  12. Good GOD I hope she's a nanny.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I agree. She's some sort of caregiver/nanny.

    Or a Mom. That's a big job!

  14. Well, Nanny/Preschool has been covered... the only other thing I can think of is that since you didn't say when you received the text, it's possible that she's a bartender or something similar. I'm not a bartender, but I've still heard a LOT of bad ideas in the bar.

  15. Group home/Social worker?

  16. My guess is that she's an Executive Admin Assistant to some big CEO. Just because they wear big-boy pants, doesn't mean they've grown up.

  17. OH OH i know i know!!! okay.. so my best friend works with autistic children.. she works with severe to moderate cases and i recall a similar situation happening with her.

    So my answer is.. a child and youth worker at a elementary school level!?
    am i right!!!! the anticipation is gonna kill me.

  18. I'm guessing something in retail. Don't ask why. Trust me.

  19. Sorry, guys, I should have made this quiz harder. You all pretty much win -- she's a nanny*!

    Cheez-Its for everyone!

    *Not to be confused with THE Nanny. I'm not trying to throw down, Fran Drescher. You kind of scare me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. "Depends" tester...it's not a career, just something to tide her over...geesh.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Fran wouldn't have a problem with the pee-pee pants as long as it all was color coordinated and goldily accessorized. I'm guessing.

  22. I was going to say "She's the manager at my local United Artists theater, of course!" but then realized you already answered. Drats!

    The managers at the movie theaters downtown have to deal with that stuff on a regular basis, though!

  23. I'm going to guess...

    Intern for a US Senator.

  24. I'm not surprised, I've had similar conversations with the kids that I nanny. It isn't pretty.

    PS I love your blog!

  25. I never the leave the house without an extra pair of panties in my coat pocket because I'm a... mom. I guess mom. (Psst, the panties are for my preschool age daughter, not for me.)

  26. I feel confident Zoe works for the City. I think she is in charge of allocating space for Graffiti "Artists" covering the Long Island City area of Queens. She is doing a mervelous job I might add.

    ReplyDelete
  27. She's Lindsey Lohan's stylist.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nice one, Mountain View Medical -- way better than my R. Kelly joke!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Social worker...I have chats like this all the freaking time with crazy cat ladies, 4 year olds, and parents who are on the edge.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Howdy! What a amazingly looking personal website you own! Did you create this site with our own help?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hiya! I simply wanted to state the fact that you definitely managed to create a stunning blog. And there is one thing I wanted to ask you. Do you consider the option to write as a professional or this blog is basically just a?
