Sorry.. Is this a typo? Or does this acronym have multiple meanings? I didn't think one could use this acronym to describe oneself.

This is off topic.. I apologize... But I am confused and wanted to know.

Dee, it was Maureen5360 who was stiffed by the MSC, not me. Fortunately, I have never been stiffed by an MSC. I have had a job or two rejected with no pay, but it was clearly my fault. Just part of earning my stripes as a shopper. I try not to make the same mistake twice.

Well, it stands for Mother I'd Like to ... do adult things with...
Not necessarily the way one wants to describe oneself.

LOL - I'm such a moron! I had no idea, so I pondered the acronym a moment and decided it meant, Middle Income Latin Female. This does not show up on all-acronyms.com, though...

Take care -

Maybe I am naiive but I consider MILF to simply mean a midlife female and that's it- no innuendo/ double meanings. I don't use digsuting acronyms in real life much less on a forum !!!!

You should use another acronym. I'm pretty sure that every meaning of that ends in a word that rhymes with "truck". I have never heard it used any other way, not that I'm an expert but it's used quite a bit in movies, magazines, even on TV....

Carolyn, here is a link to the Wikipedia definition. It definitely doesn't mean what you think it means.

I'll try to bring it back around to the topic...I've decided to add some shops to my "Never Again" list;

---pizza shops where photos are required of the pizza flipped over and they *only* give reimb. I don't want to eat a manhandled pizza that has been flipped over!

---meal shops (besides ff) that only reimb. enough for one person but then "prefer" you have 2 people.

---merchandising jobs that pay about 8$ an hour and say "capped at one hour" but then don't take into account that you are at the mercy of the store and the manager and employees who could be busy/on lunch/ignorant

I think those To Go Pizza shops fall under this category. If you don't take the photo just right- POOF you are not paid. I think that is a little harsh. Especially since you are only allowed to submit one photo. Why not allow the shopper to post multiple photos.

Anita, I always take more than one photo of each pizza view. Although they only allow you to submit one initially, I have been successful in getting a rejection reversed by sending them a different photo when I get the rejection.

Repeat Rant: (maybe if people mention it enough times, SOMEONE will get the message??!)

I will no longer do a shop where I apply two weeks ahead, and then the morning the shop is due, some clown sends me an email that it's due at 4 PM. Don't care what it is. Don't care how much it pays. Don't care if I'm madly, desperately fond of the scheduler. Don't care!

I'm tired of scrambling my schedule for "professionals" who go, "Oops! Forget to mention that I gave this to you! Sorrr-eeee..."


Take care -

I've got a new one. I've never set up movie standees before yesterday. I've now done two. Never again. I got the proverbial desperate phone call yesterday to do an "easy" setup yesterday. The standee deadline passed a week ago and they were desperate. I was in the middle of putting out a fire for my own job and said yes without thinking. Not so bad. Today they called me again and this time waived big bucks in front of me. So I stupidly said yes again. This time the instructions said "difficult" and it took me over 4 hours to put together. I invited a partner to help, but he showed up stoned and other than providing me company, was worthless. The theater management took pity and gave me a free soda, one even offered free movie. I'm achy, I'm tired and I'm never going to do this again. Furthermore, after putting it all together I still couldn't get the giraffe's and donkey's ass to swing properly!!!!

Amen Sue!! Even after I say "No Thanks" and they offer a bonus, no longer juggling my schedule to accomodate them. Scheduling makes my brain hurt!

Amy--I think I would think twice before accepting any job that requires I get a giraffe and donkey to to shake their stuff!
