  1. Yes Marva, one has to be careful about job descriptions……
    …..I remember some years ago there was a card in a shop window stating “Flexible Car Driver wanted good pay”
    Me thinking it would bring a bit of extra money into the house. I telephoned the number and a lady told me she was slightly disabled chiropodist and she wanted someone to drive her to clients in their own homes. I told her I had a main job but if her appointments were when I was free I’d be happy to take the job she agreed. She was a very nice person very kind and caring smart and paid me very well, after about eight months of driving her around all over east Kent I told her my wife had an In growing toenail and could the she look at it. She replied “ toenail, toenail, what do you mean”
    I said with her being a chiropodist. She laugh out loud and told me she was an escort on the game!!!! I had inadvertently been driving her around to her regulars totally unaware what her real job was. She told if she had told me she was on the ‘game’ “ your wife might not have liked it”. She was totally professional to me and never offered any perks, not that I wanted her to.
