Is there a proper career path for sexting?

A big dilemma was resolved at work yesterday when a local politician - who had been invited to speak at an event of ours before a big sex/budget/work scandal and a criminal investigation - finally resigned. We would have had to uninvite him for obvious reasons.

Emailing a volunteer, I wrote that it was too bad that he had fucked up like this (no pun intended), because he was really good on our issues. If he would have screwed around with someone outside of his workplace - someone he didn't get into a much higher-paying, cushy job - he probably could have kept his.

And she wrote back: 

"Or he could have just have kept it in his pants altogether.
I do get tired of all the politicians being so superior to everyone to think that they're not going to get caught in these things. They're in the public eye. If you want to cheat on your spouse or sext people, go be a plumber, politics is a bad idea. It shows a tremendous conceit to think that everyone else is too stupid to notice."


Which immediately made me think, sexting plumbers? All of the equipment right near the belt? 

Is there a proper career path for sexting? We could come up with some spiffy taglines.

Firefighters...too hot for your phone to handle!

Electricians...doing it without shorts.

Butchers...the best meat right here on display! 

Engineers...wait, that won't work, there would be too many discussions and meetings to get anything done. (Which is why I never need to worry about Mr. RK doing this. Thanks, honey!)

Divers do it deeper.

And yes, I agree with your friend. If your life is on display (politicians, actors etc) don't do anything that you don't want in the public eye. And I don't want to see quite a lot of the things which are pushed into our faces...

Well, I don't have any puns but there have been multiple times my husband (a letter carrier) has been propositioned by women. The last one was a few weeks ago who stopped and invited him to lunch and said she would make it worth his while.

One of our pollies here got outed by a scorned lover a few weeks ago...he'd sexted her a pic of his "old fella" dipped in a glass of red wine!

Silly man! It would've been easy to just drink the wine the usual way!

So, she, having felt cheated on by a glass of red wine, decided to share her emotional heartbreak with the rest of Australia...and the world, of course!

I work in a library, and we all know how kinky librarians are!

Granny Annie said...

Blue collar workers are too busy WORKING to have time for sexting. Politicians don't have to do anything else so they have lots of our time and money to keep it up. (Pun intended).

I was following along until you got to "butchers." egads, now I have a thought I'd prefer not to have in my head today. :)

Lawyers -- see what's in our briefs!

Abby said...

That's why I married my husband the engineer. That and something about force equillibrium, fluid flow, concentrated loads...

When I ponder the sexting (and worse) politicians, I think it's a chicken-and-egg situation. Does the office make them prone to egomania? Or does the egomania make them prone to run for office?

I find that interesting as well, that people in such a public eye, don't think they will get caught. Perhaps they think they are smarter than the average cheater.

Funny tag lines. I don't know the perfect line of work to trend into sexting but I think Firemen would be the best. First of all there are so many good looking firemen. Then by the time you throw in words like hot and hoses...

Very much against the plumber idea. Plumber's crack is just not sexy at all.

EC: Excellent ;)
Birdie: That is hilarious! And he wants to retire why? :)
Lee: AGH. I need some mental bleach now. Wine, for God's sake?!
Kelly: I hope my librarian friend Mike reads that!
GA: HAHA!~ Good points.
CG: Sorry about that...focus on the electricians.
Debra: Fantastic!
Abby: (Laughing my ass off) and good question. I'm guessing they have to have the ego first.
Cheryl: Yeah, I have to agree on both the firemen and plumbers.

The truth is, with the Internet and Phones with Cameras, EVERYONE is in the public eye!
Frankly, I an disgusted by the knowledge that there is no longer any Privacy, AND, that there are so very many people who are so involved with sharing their Body Parts for ALL the world to see! Just what the hell did people do before all these very public platforms existed---Such Ego Needs....OY VEY!!!!! I mean...these people were called "Flashers" back in the day....! Now? Anything Goes, and it is okay??? Nor by my Old Fashioned Standards, I guess.

A plumber probably wouldn't get in much trouble for sexting, especially if he was just sending pictures of his crack. "Come on, it's not like people don't see this every day anyway."

Lynn said...

I'll never understand that sexting thing anyway. Funny post. :)

CraveCute said...

Love the puns! :)

Riot Kitty said...

Naomi: It's not old-fashioned not to want to be bombarded by pics of everyone's junk, IMHO, just good manners!
ABFTS: Yeah, good point ;)
Lynn: Thanks! Me neither.
CC: I just couldn't help it...

Tons of people pay for phone sex and online sex conversations.

You could probably make a decent living to send sexy texts to someone.
