QotD: Your Answers, Please…

I’m a transcriptionist. I sit at home, headphones on, listening to and inputting the spoken word. It can be boring – once I transcribed a whole talk about Food Quality Plastics – but generally it’s intriguing.

Just what do you think I was working on, when I transcribed the following:

Charity accountant stole over £500,000 to buy 105 car wrecks

You Act Like You Are 33 Years Old

You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

You're responsible, wise, and have enough experience to understand a lot of the world.

You're at the point in your life where you understand yourself pretty well.

You are figuring out what you want… and how to get it!

Seriously, have most people of 33 figured themselves out?  Wow – I've still to do this.  And as for deciding what I want – never in a month of Sundays!
