Overheard at Booth 2: Daughter's New Job

Wife: ... and don't go telling people that she works for the owner of the company.

Husband: Why not?  That's cool.

Wife: It makes it seem like it's not that important.  You are making the job seem less than what it is.   By saying the lady owns her own company, it makes it sound like it's a small firm.

Husband: Well it is.  They only have ten employees.  But it's cool.  Our daughter is the executive assistant to the president of an interior design firm before she has even finished her degree.

Wife: And that's all you have to say.  Just stop there.  You always give too many details and people won't imagine that it's all that important.

Husband: I know you're wrong on this one, but I just don't know how to say it.

Wife: Then say nothing.  It's better if you just stop talking.
