Accountants at parties

My usual ruse is to state that I do/or teach the most fascinating,interesting occupation in the entire world/known Universe.

This with a bit of encouragement (if the other person isn’t too boring!) ends up with a trail through occupations and ends up with gasps of surprise and gives me a chance to explain why accountancy (or to be precise tax) is so good. I usually end up saying it’s all about people and reeling off some of myexperiences, that’s what makes it so interesting!
