PushyMum: You like taking pictures, don’t you?
JadedSnapper: Well I’m not sure about the use of the present tense, but go on..
PushyMum: Great! It’s my oldest daughter’s SweetSixteen this weekend so..could you do it, as a favour? I’ll pay you!!
JS: A favour? You’ll pay and everything!? For some kid’s birthday party? No sorry, their SweetSixteen? Sounds utterly degrading, but as you’re a friend, then yes I’ll do it for you. It’s 3 buttons
JS: I’ll have to reschedule a little job I had that day, but no problem for you PushyMom
PushyMom: Why are you calling me ‘PushyMom’?
JS: Because a SweetSixteen is nauseatingly American
PushyMom: Oh.. well thanks for that
Ring Ring –
PushyMom: Erm, hi Jaded
JS: All set for tonight? I turned down a job to do it for you
PushyMom: About that –
JS: About that what?
PushyMom: Well I’ve got someone else to do it, you see they’re charging a little less than you and you know credit crunch –
JS: Yeah blah blah, you’ve hired a limo for goodness sake
PushyMom: Yeah it’ll be a real blast –
JS: So, despite asking me first and knowing I’ve turned down jobs to do this you’ve gone and hired someone else when you’re splashing out on a limo?! Who is it?
PushyMom: MonkeySnapper, I got him off Jade’sList
PushyMom: Yeah, he only want peanuts
JS: Well that’s okay then! You best go with MonkeySnapper..
PushyMom: Thanks for being so understanding
PushyMom: Hi, Jaded –
JS: Oh, you
PushyMom: Yeah, MonkeySnapper did a rubbish job.
JS: Quel surprise
PushyMom: What? Well he put his price up –
PushyMom: – and started a fight with one of the girls
PushyMom: – and to cap it all, he did a rubbish job –
JS: So, you paid peanuts and got a rubbish photographer, who then proceeded to ruin the night and give you a set of incompetent, useless images? Cry me a river
PushyMom: Yeah…So I was wondering if you’d do my mother in laws 60th next Saturday
