Some (most) people don't get me. Had this excellent chat with our quality assurance engineer yesterday.
QA Guy: Mike, you should apply to be a manager in our company.
Me: Nah, I've got no interest in that.
QA Guy: (Astonished) Why is that, Mike? You would be very good at this job.
Me: It sounds horrible. I have no desire to manage people.
QA Guy: But Mike, it is a good job and you would be very good at it, sir.
Me: It's not for me. It's one of many jobs that I have no interest in. I don't want to be a garbage man, or the President, or a manager, or a hooker, or a...
QA Guy: (More astonished) Hooker?!?!
Me: Yeah, hooker.
QA Guy: Why do you say hooker?
Me: Well, it's a job I don't want.
QA Guy: But what would make you think of hooker?
Me: Geez, I don't know. I was listing a whole bunch of jobs that sound unappealing to me. Hooker is one of those. Manager too.
QA Guy: But Mike! When people ask me what kind of jobs I would not like, I would never think to say hooker!
Me: Do you want to be a hooker?
QA Guy: No! Ok, sir, you are right. From now on, when people ask what kind of work I would like to do, I will say that I do not want to be a hooker.
He's coming around.
