Your mouth is oily, I like that in a man!

wingette-2-180.jpgBlog Guy, we all appreciate the wise career advice you give in your blog. Recently you reported on the worst job for a guy. Are there also bottom-of-the-barrel jobs for women, so I can avoid them?

Yes. Every year there is this huge chicken wing-eating competition, and I always notice the “Wingettes” – women who wear sexy outfits and are supposed to appear interested in whether the contestants are choking to death.

I realize it’s just acting, and they don’t really care. But it just seems to me that if your job is to show cleavage at some low-rent spectacle while staring at vile, greasy mouths to see if food is going in or coming out – a strong indicator of whether something has gone very wrong – then maybe your guidance counselor has had a big laugh at your expense.
