So apparently they add more value to society than surgeons do.
Ha! Yes. Perfectly put.
This is something best asked of someone on the operating table.
It's not like it wasn't their choice to become a surgeon. They should have become footballers. They sound like idiots to me!
People value entertainment.
Plus a footballer can entertain millions at once. A surgeon can not do millions of surgeries simultaneously.
There was one time when a lady asked me for my stylist. I was tempted to mention your name but I was afraid you would be embarrassed to make such easy money.
Society would very narrow and dull if we didn't have all types of roles.
I think it's a bit narrow to start identifying which jobs have value and which don't.
As PB said, you might have a guy who is not so confident in himself get a style advisor and through it gain confidence to get a 'serious' job (as you so put it) or find a romantic partner. Or just generally feel better about himself amongst his peers. Not everyone will have a guiding sibling, partner, parent etc who can say "you'd look good in this or that".
Could all be a placebo, but if the customer feels a benefit in the end, its a job well done and certainly shouldn't be dismissed in such easy terms. There are different ways to add value to society and as long as someone is not defrauding someone, I feel all jobs add value.
Be careful in the direction you are heading with your logic too. Think of the topic of this thread - these suits cost thousands of euros - there are people in not only the developing world but also the relatively poor in the Western world who would be horrified we spend so much on clothes when people are starving in our own countries, let alone those far flung places.... Surely we should all just wear basic and functional garments, replacing only when worn out and give the rest away? How can we justify doing otherwise when we have more than enough?
Just a thought...
Gentlemen, we are now aware of how we each value individuals. Perhaps best to get back on topic....Solito suits.
Insecurity is best dealt with by a professional. A psychologist perhaps? As for the third world comment, I agree completely. A point well made.
No, quite shameless about easy money. Please refer away!
In all seriousness, I was once invited to speak at a conference, which I did, and afterward several very nice ladies came up to me and said I would make a terrific image consultant. I asked them, how would I get clients? They had no answer to that, so I just went home.
You should have asked for their numbers
You're right! Sorry about that...
Oh, it will most certainly will look ridiculous on you. Why don't you give me your paypal address, and I'll take that length off your hands and remove the temptation completely?
Haha I figured cos I went back and looked, my patch pockets seem fine phew No need to apologise mate!
Every time someone patch pockets a worsted, a kitten dies.
