I was filling out a form the other day and it asked my occupation. I ended up putting housewife cos I had to be quick and couldn't think but it's been annoying me ever since grin

I'm too young and feisty and independent to be a housewife lol.

So what do we call ourselves these days? grin

Lol thanks, I like it! The form was to witness something for a neighbour and he read it and laughed and I felt a bit silly then!

Superhero it is grin

Sorry, but I hate housewife.

Me too! Like I said I was in a rush and panicked!

Although, no matter what you wrote, your neighbour was very rude to laugh. I wouldn't help him again.

If I stayed at home to look after my child (or if DH did), I'd say SAHP.

I thought so too... He's a strange man but they've just sold the house so he won't be there for long smile

Wouldn't "unemployed" be the obvious answer...

Superhero is a good one! grin

HelenHen Wed 12-Mar-14 07:44:48

I don't really consider myself unemployed though... Way I see it my husband's wages pay mine too!grin

Next time I'll just write 'none'. Tis none of their feckin business anyway! Grrrr!
