The problems of the beautiful. For Laura Fernee her looks cause her all kinds of hassles, the biggest being that she can’t find a job.
Fernee has a PhD and says, ”I’m not lazy and I’m no bimbo. The truth is my good looks have caused massive problems for me when it comes to employment, so I’ve made the decision that employment just isn’t for me at the moment. It’s not my fault…I can’t help the way I look.
In the end, as much as I loved my work, going in to work became very, very difficult because of the psychological impact on me. I know people will judge me for choosing not to work but they are underestimating just what a curse good looks can be in the workplace.
London is an adorable, friendly girl who was surrendered to the Chilliwack SPCA. She is a white maltese (possibly mixed with poodle) and about 4 years old. London needed a makeover so off to the groomer she went. Turns out she is not comfortable with the grooming experience (something that is being worked on right now) so she ended up getting a close shave while at the vet’s office for her teeth cleaning and spay. London is a friendly girl who gets along well with other dogs and loves to curl up and be a lap dog. Please contact the SPCA at 604-823-6612 if you’d like to meet her.
