Occupational Hazard

I just had a phone call with an elderly client of our service here at work, during which she launched into way too much detail about washing her nether regions, as she put it 'when required'.

a) No matter how hard I pretend, I don't think she was referring to the Dutch, b) ewww and c) let's hope the 'requirement' = 'daily'.

Oh my. How funny and horrifying.

On a related (and synchronistic) note, check out the vagina hat post I just put up. It'll make even more sense to you!

I just saw that! "I have a big black pussy." Indeed!

Now I have several images seared on my cerebellum...

As do the rest of us, thanks very much!

Still, I suppose the post was its own warning which I blithely ignored.

I wonder if/hope there'll be an audible signal or something inside my head, warning me that I've clicked over into that geriatric lack of any sense of modesty or decorum when it comes to genitalia.

It's crazy. Don't even get me started on old lady pussy stories.

We know you have moved to a new job at the Big Christian Charity, but exactly what is in your job description?

Something like this I figure... 4. Fix the spreadsheets; 5. Train untrainable office temps; 6. counsel old ladies regarding their personal hygene...

Just as kenyo asked, I, too, was wondering what exactly your job could entail that would lead to this call. Was the lady asking you to lend a hand, so to speak?

We help frail aged and disabled people stay in their homes, by helping them with bathroom aids, modifications to their homes, maintenance work - that sort of thing. Hence the bathroom discussion, although it went to a place I was not used to it going to...

Ja, pretty much. I'm thinking about applying for worker's compensation.
