I have a chuffingly great idea. Really bloody good.

But I might cry at various points.

Should I?

AtYourCervix Wed 10-Jul-13 21:46:21

And I can't do sums.

Apart from that I'd be so good.

And my bizniz idea is a cracker.

SweetHoneyBeeeeee Wed 10-Jul-13 21:48:02

Ha, I always think about this...but

1. I don't think I am enough of an arsehole, and

2. I make a good show of being confident but I am actually not and I would definitely cry if someone was horrid to me sad

SweetHoneyBeeeeee Wed 10-Jul-13 21:48:34

Also tell me your idea (promise not to steal it wink )

WildlingPrincess Wed 10-Jul-13 21:48:38

As long as you don't turn into a Katie Hopkins style twat, I say go for it!

AtYourCervix Wed 10-Jul-13 21:51:21

I don't think I'm much of a twat. Mostly.

I don't wear heels though.

SweetHoneyBeeeeee Wed 10-Jul-13 21:53:31

Oh yeah, that's the other thing, I dress appallingly, have patchy make up and came be arsed to do my hair most days...sounding attractive, aren't I?

SweetHoneyBeeeeee Wed 10-Jul-13 21:53:48

Can't*

I applied for it many series ago and got an interview. They sent me a form to fill in and bring with me. That form was designed to make you sound like an utter twat and I suspect is responsible for a lot of the sound bites they use about things candidates have said about themselves. And if you didn't make yourself sound like a complete twat you wouldn't be interesting enough to get through to it. I didn't want to write crap to sound interesting and then have it turn up in the tabloids at a later point so didn't show up for the interview.

This series has been so full of twats I think they filter out the actual decent human beings in the selection process! Plus you have to be thin, pretty and a snappy dresser (not saying you aren't op btw) which IME have no bearing on how good you are

pigletmania Wed 10-Jul-13 21:59:35

God no, I most certainly would not want to work for that arse, and hate his sidekick Claude, he s just rude as he is

kim147 Wed 10-Jul-13 22:01:51

I couldn't do it. I need more than 1/2 hour to get ready in the morning.
Plus I'm quite good at maths.

I also wear sensible primary teacher like clothes.

CatsAndTheirPizza Wed 10-Jul-13 22:03:44

YANBU so long as you never want to work again ...

LEMisdisappointed Wed 10-Jul-13 22:06:32

Im too much of a minger

MrsPatrickDempsey Wed 10-Jul-13 22:12:48

Yanbu but only if your eyebrows are up to it! There really have been some serious ones this series. Oh and they mustn't match your hair colour!

decaffwithcream Wed 10-Jul-13 22:20:46

DO YOU ALWAYS GIVE 120 PER CENT?

jollyjester Wed 10-Jul-13 22:44:56

Who can take 6months out of their life with the possibility of nothing at the end of it?!

Don't these people have existing a businesses to run, bills to pay, families etc or have I just got a mega sensible head?

I've such a good idea but DH would run out of clean socks if I got on it! grin
