Some people can make an occupation out of anything……. like this bloke. Not a bad way to spend your working day.
I answered the ad and they stuck an umbrella in my hands and said, “Hold it for anyone who asks, particularly women.”
They didn’t need to say it twice, I like women.
I like being close to the water. I like the smell of salt in the air and I like to eat so I needed a job.
To be honest, I was more used to handling an umbrella in the winter; rain falling down, that sort of thing.
Women don’t like to get too much sun which is wise in a country where the sun will peel the skin right off you in a very short space of time.
I was a bit hesitant at first but I soon got the hang of it. “Excuse me madam, would you like to be ‘umbrellaed’?” Mostly they looked at me a bit funny at first but usually they said yes.
