My very same pacifist friend, who dislikes Kid Rock is opening a store in Istanbul called Tulu. Besides the Kid Rock e mail yesterday I received another one asking for my input on possible job titles she should put on her business card for the store. Some possibilities were: ~Grossly Negligent ~Party Enhancer ~Boozer and the last one she had thought of was ~Wildly Inappropriate. While all these accurately describe her and give my a huge chuckle, I told her my personal favorite was ~Grossly Negligent. I think it's just so funny. If someone gave me a card with that on it I would be so much more apt to keep it, stick it on the fridge and smile every time I passed it then if I got the card that said ~Store Owner or whatever. So when I told her this she e mailed back and told me where it came from, I am going to share that here too. Cause it's funny.
Once again, copied and pasted from the e mail:
yes grossly negligent is one my faves too. a few years back i had a customer on a trip who is a big time human rights lawyer. she has become a good friend and has travelled with me in turkey twice and Uzbekistan as well. one night after staying up with a group(all 60yrs old and older) partying, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and playing air guitar until 4 am....we took a hike the next am - i told everyone(mostly senior citizens) that it was a leisurely hike- more like a walk. well.....it wasn't so much. and we nearly lost one guy in the first five minutes. 5 hrs later we did all make it but we were all a bit shaken and sweaty. i personally was sweating from the stress and the hangover. when the guy fell down the cliff- i looked over to Joan (the lawyer) and said " how well does that little release form i had you all sign protect me?" she said " well, if they can prove you to be grossly negligent it doesn't work at all....." i said what would an example be?" she said, " plying old people with alcohol until 4 am getting them up to take a walk that turns out to be a death-hike"
so after that- the group got together and made little cards that said elizabeth hewitt- grossly negligent.
glad you like it...i still think it is so funny and gives me the best giggle.
So think of some personal titles for yourself, make it interesting.
