Nolls from Harrogate

Nolls from Harrogate Report 20 May 2013 14:18

Woman claims she is too pretty to work according to today's paper!!! (|Shhh! The Daily Mail) A scientific researcher on £30,000 quit her job as her good looks which are so powerful got her harassed/bullied/disliked by female workers ... she now says "Work is not for her". Now living off her parents who pay her rent/designer clothes/handbags/haircuts/gym/socialising ...about £5280 a month (well they did inherited money so I suppose it's their privilege to do so LOL!) ....Me thinks some parents do have em! and rather them than me.

What an incredibly shallow, conceited person she is! The more I read the more angry I became. Her parents certainly don't do her any favours by indulging her. I must say, I wasn't exactly bowled over by her looks when I saw her photograph. She looked quite ordinary.

I quite agree Annie nothing special, think it would be her attitude to her co-workers that got their backs up!......at least we don't have to keep her on benefits (I hope) and why or how does this get into the papers has she gone to them herself? .. If she was my daughter I would disown her

If that woman thinks she is better looking than most other women then I suggest a trip to specsavers would help

She was on television this morning on the This MOrning programme with Philip and Holly.

Island Report 20 May 2013 15:48

'On television'. That'll be what it's all about, just like that other madam who 'other women were so jealous of' last year or the one before (?) who got herself a gig on Big Bother or Dump me in the Jungle.

She wants a short cut to being a celebwity. Bless her lickle heart.

George Report 20 May 2013 16:30

I haven't seen her photo, but I suppose to her she is good looking ;-) ;-)

It's a little like some mothers who think their children are pretty when in fact a lot of them are ugly little tykes :-D :-D :-D :-D

George :-) :-) :-) :-)

She's rather like that Samantha Brick person - who believes her beauty is a disadvantage, as all men find her irrisistable. They must be looking in very distorted mirrors!

I saw that this morning, but it seems to have disappeared. I'dhaveloved to have read some of the comments.........

I didn't read the full article (?) but do remember she reckons she's not a bimbo, as she has a degree.
She's obviously a bit dense, as surely being bimbo is a state rather than a sign of lack of intelligence.
Quite a few of the charmers on TOWIE had private schooling.......

Gee thanks, Barry :-|

£2000 a month!!! That's more than I earn.
Perhaps she's not so dense. If someone gave me that a month to live on, I'd gladly call them mum and dad :-D

Just tried that link Barry. She is ok, but no stunner.

Lots of more beautiful women on that page. In fact, I would rather go out with Jason Priestley (think that is the name) and she is about No 10 on that page for me.

Perhaps she takes a bad photo. I know I do :-) ;-)

'It is hardly too much to say that we all of us occasionally speak of budding celebrities in a manner in which these individuals would very little like to hear themselves mentioned'.

....... just thought I would mention....... she has written a book on harassment in the workplace ...... or something like that :-\

Obviously seeking publicity. :-|

And Joeva a big payout in compensation perhaps?

JustJohn

JustJohn Report 20 May 2013 22:26

I cannot see how Joeva is entitled to any compo :-S :-S

But I hope you share any with your friends on this thread.

I reckon you are all more attractive than this young lady. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is something within you.

Have I just said that Roy is more attractive than this "woman". :-S :-S :-S Actually Roy - I think you probably are :-) :-) :-)

I think she is a very pretty young woman.........but the rest of the article is rubbish :-(

Her mum loves her. Nothing else on this earth really matters.
