Recent conversation at a NY bar:
Fred: So what do you do?
Me: Well in our company we create engaging videos – they help with market segmentation.
Fred: So you’re in marketing. Interesting, I wouldn’t peg you for the marketing type.
Me: Yes! It’s definitely in marketing. What? Why wouldn’t I seem like a marketing person?
Fred: Well, I know a lot of marketing girls. They’re all good looking. In fact the last girl I dated was in marketing. And you just do not seem like you would be a marketing type of person.
Me: Oh! Well, what typically makes up a marketing person?
Fred: Well first off, they’re all pretty.
Fred: And friendly.
Me: (smiling, to demonstrate my friendliness.)
Fred: And it’s clear they put a lot of effort into what they are wearing and how they look.
Me: Okay, that’s enough.
Fred: So yeah, you just don’t seem like one at all.
Me: Yes, thank you for clarifying.
