...it hurts. It makes you feel less than...exciting. It makes you wonder if your sexual technique was less than stellar, or if your conversational prowess was lacking. FFS, this fcuker was also fcuking bald. It was all about money, I'll tell you. He had lots and I didn't. Happily, I saw the bird in question a few years back and she's turned into a mangy, gopping, disgusting Crocadillamongasaurus so it serves him right. OTOH, Mrs. Veg is utterly stunning. Mwuhahahahaaaa!!! The reason I'm posting this is because I'm pondering the very important issue of when you got dumped by a bird (or a bloke or a Alsatian or whatever), what was the occupation of the tw*t they left you for? This will then go into an interesting ARRSE NAAFI statistical vortex whereby we can develop a BARSTA*D JOB WIFE-STEALING INDEX (BJWSI). This will allow us to keep a look-out for certain occupations and thus prevent our other halves having anything to do with them, unless (A) you want to be dumped or (B) you are a groovy swinger. I'm only going to put The Accountant in because I'm only going to count serious relationships (for example, I was living with the bird who ran off with The Accountant...did I mention how painful it was?). Army types may list offenders by Trade/ Corps/ Regt. if they wish. Civvies can also join in, for example The Accountant was in insolvency. I'm wondering what occupation is going to pop up the most...I've found that people in medicine are pretty suspect too. Please post away, and make sweeping and offensive generalisations about the professions in question. V!
