It's Not Porn..

Hey Lifers...

So I've been pretty busy this week, sorry for the lack of posts. I know how much that bothers you all...

This past Monday I started a new position at work. I've been looking forward to this move for the last couple of months. It's one of those deals where another department needed to fill a position and I interviewed for and got the job. Only bad thing is, I had to wait until my current position was filled before I could transfer over.

So anyway I'm in a new position starting this week. Which as we all know when we start on a new job there's the honeymoon period. You know you're trying to make a good impression, learning the ropes, and trying to remember how to fill out the TPS Reports.

Now most everybody that I know, knows that my DW is an awesome photographer. However not everybody at work knows, and now that I'm in a different position even less of my co-workers know.

So today one of my co-workers asked me about her business. How's it going, what type of camera does she have, yada, yada, yada. I jot down her web site address and tell him to check out some of her work.

Like I said my DW is awesome. I'm very proud of her work and the countless hours she puts into her craft. She does the typical wedding photography, family portraits, seniors, babies, and boudoir portraits.

So this guy goes to her web site and checks it out and obviously shared the link with another lady we work with. No big deal right? Later this afternoon we have another meeting.

Keep in mind, I've been on this job now for exactly 4 days.4 days people. That means my current supervisor, and this group of people have worked with me for like 32 hours. 

So there's 6 or 7 of us around the conference table, and as soon as this clown gets done presenting, he looks at me and says:

Hey man so do you get to go with your wife on the boudoir shoots? Said in my best Joe Dirt voice, like he's 13 or something.


Classy.

So I try to be cool, and calmly say no sure don't.

Look, my DW is a professional. Her work is tasteful and beautiful. Her clients love what she does. Her clients husbands love the work she does. I am neither embarrassed nor ashamed of what she does, however I don't exactly think it should be discussed during a meeting at work with the office 13 year old, AND NOT IN FRONT OF MY SUPERVISOR WHO HAS KNOWN ME FOR ALL OF 32 HOURS!!!!. you DB.

Then the lady with whom he shared the link decides to help the situation by saying:  

Oh I went and looked at some of those pictures and they are amazing. Just beautiful. I had to quickly close it out though because, you know? Well, you know, I mean it's not porn or anything but...

OMG PEOPLE STOP TALKING...PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS THAT IS NOT PORN PLEASE STOP TALKING. 

So I'm pretty well convinced at this point that my new boss thinks the DW dabbles in the Porn. So much for making a good first impression.....
