Fact: Some temporary tattoos are not that temporary.

Fact: It helps to know your audience.

When you go into a rather important meeting, after which you’ll either have a new job or be in the exit lounge, you need to decide which side of your arm to face to the big boss:

a) the side with a big green and gold tattoo saying “Aussie Legend”, which when reading between the lines also says “I had a big piss up on Australia Day yesterday”; or

b) the side covered in hives, which when reading between the lines also says “I am diseased!”


Yep, I decided he probably had a big piss up too. And yep, I got the job, and the payrise I asked for along with it.

    So temporary tatoos are perminant, and perminant tatoos are temporary. (Speaking from experience.)

    yay! new job, payrise, australia day and a piss up. What more could a girl ask for?

    “not much” comes the resounding response….

    I don’t know that term either because I’m American or because I’m boring, but I assume (and Google confirms) that Australia Day was fun for you. Congratulations on the job – so happy for you.

    Ah of course the pay is now an issue again. I’ve said NO to the job, unless they come through with the money. Still waiting to hear, here.
