Just a load of...

SIAOLI adv. embarrassing

How many times have you been offered a TITLE for cash? For the average person, unless one actively seeks for it on the net, the answer is probably not too often. Besides, what good is a TITLE?

Well, some people feel that with a TITLE before, or after their names, they will feel empowered to do great stuff, like visiting welfare homes and feel the need to pat and look sympathetically at orphan kids. They might also think that TITLES gives them respectability, influence and status. In some cases, it is also seen as an opportunity to mingle with the rich and famous and, not too uncommon, an opportunity to generate extra wealth and income. A career boost perhaps.

Well, I have been offered one, at a discounted price! Embarrassingly, this offer (with an expiry date!) is done through a valid, registered professional channel. For a small donation, the Royal Society of Medicine is happy to grant me a Fellowship title. That's another four extra letters after my name. And it allows me to enter its London headquarters through a MEMBERS ONLY ENTRANCE and buy their merchandise at near cost price. Wow, tears of joy.

What a load of....

Titles? I really just want breakfast with double-yolk eggs eveyday.
