Hello dear friend, I love this, sometimes firing an old husband would be nice if it was that easy. How about a computer chip to reprogram our mates. a 7 hugs Eve

You never mentioned being late. I'm at the Quayside awaiting the Ferry. Being ex Navy, I'd rather sail to Douglas, erm Jan, not Douglas, that's the Capital. Phew, you never mentioned being dumb either ;-) hugs always, James xx

lol thanks James I just hope they have the apprentice elsewhere so others understand the humourous aspect here:-) Ohhh I hate people being late it is so irritating my ex used to do it - no wonder he is an ex :-) Hugs Jan xx

Jan one of the marks of a good writer is that they can write from another point of view in a believable way. And those who do not know anything about you will believe this whole heartedly. Wonderful job! ;-p Janet

Jan, I like this one. How artful indeed!! I wish you the best for the contest. (I gather that this is fictional from the comments below.) A "7" from me, and all the best!! Gary

Broken wings it is pure fiction for the contest - in fact we are celebrating 24 yrs on 22nd June - am glad it is a realistic write though:-) Hugs jan xx
Date: 6/7/2015 8:49:00 AM
Jan, this is freakin' hilarious. Jan I once bought my wife a beautiful ring on a Tuesday. She asked "why did you buy me this ring? I replied "because today is Tuesday." The ring has forever been called the "Tuesday Ring". Hope you find a worthy candidate to fill the position.

Aww John that is a wonderful story. My hubby is not a jewllery buying man - I just buy my own lol. We are celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary on 22nd June - when I saw the title of the contest 'the Apprentice' TV programme sprang to mind so I went with you're hired he's fired as my starting point - just hope Judy likes it:-) Hugs Jan xx
Date: 6/7/2015 1:05:00 AM

ha ha ha :-) I am not sure if it is what Judy is after but the idea came to me late last night and I have to go with the flow of my muse. 'the Apprentice' TV programme - came to me when I saw the interview theme - guess marriage can be a job for life hugs Jan xx
Date: 6/6/2015 11:20:00 PM
lordy...if I didn't know this is fiction, I'll be sad with the Loyal quip! This is very good, my friend. Funny and yet people can relate. A 7. Blessings for the contest! Hope you're having a nice weekend. Hugs! :-)

ha ha ha you are learning fast - I expected someone else to get in first lol was amazed mine was lol - I just came up with the theme and went for a bit of a humourous take - am not sure if you have 'the apprentice' in the US but thought it went well with the 'vacancy' theme - i just hope Judy likes it:-) Hugs jan xx
