I have a very funny story to tell about a gift one of my clients gave me...........
She is in her 80s and is always giving me little things
WELL......... the other day she asked me if I wore knickers or thongs :eek:
can you imagine being asked that?
well I answered her of course and for the men on this board shut your eyes now........I mean it, get them SHUT........I answered her with, thongs when I`m a bit lighter in weight but knickers at the mo............
Can you guess where this is going??????????
She bought some knickers for herself and they don`t fit and didn`t want to throw them...............SSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOO she gave them to me.
Oh my goodness, you should see them, and yes, your images in your head right now are spot on.
I came away from there with 6 pairs, no less, of proper granny knickers.
What could I say, she is soooooooo sweet I couldn`t offend.
All I can say is I hope its a one-off, never to be repeated gift. I certainly don`t want them in my xmas box.
SO, what do you get from your clients, I bet you can`t top that.......

And yes you're right, I can't top it. By the way I think you should be pretty damned pleased you get given anything:biggrin:

Oh but I am, I am...........I`ve had a half tin of biscuits, a 3 way buffer she bought thinking it was a nail file and didn`t want. She is such a sweet lady, I couldn`t possibly upset her by not accepting her pressies, lol

I don`t think they will somehow, they`re definitely not a tiger print, or have any bondage chains either, lol
I may just keep them for posterity though, if only to cheer me up when I`m feeling down, cos they certainly make me giggle.
They must be pension compulsory wear, what do you reckon?

LOL!

Nothing like that yet. My Ladies bring me Coffee and biscuits to try, one lady bought me perfume for Christmas, but it wasn't the stuff you would wear, and they bought me some gorgeous paper flowers in cream and brown that look beautiful with everything in by Salon! Oh.... and most importantly I got a bottle of wine, and one lovely lady brought me some homemade mince pies.

I suppose I am lucky really! :biggrin: (But if they keep it up I will be Lucky and Fat! :) :) )

That was very very funny. Perhaps you could use them as shorts in the summer - start a new fashion!

I did a present recycling thing this Xmas (hope none of my clients read this). The first one that came in with a present gave me a box of chocs. I re-wrapped them and gave them to the next client who gave me a present and so on and on!!

I couldn`t bring myself to do that, I know a lot of my clients talk to one another and I`d be sooooooo embarassed if they found out

Now thats an idea, I just knew they`d come in handy. It might even lure a fella my way too :o
