Query 
I’m writing a piece about how women are working harder than ever. I’d love to speak to a women who either:

Takes anti-depressants to cope with my job
Had a baby so I could go on maternity leave/ have a year off work
Has no idea how much my partner earns
Lies about my salary to my friends (so they don’t feel fed up/ jealous)

  1. Ooh never thought of that…now I can get off the anti-depressants I take to cope with my job by having five babies to get time off work, and reduce my salary so I don’t have to lie about it to my friends anymore! Hmmm…now if only I had the courage to ask my partner how much he earns.

  2. Oh my, with such juicy.. I eh mean.. informative and ‘relevant’ facts about some vulnerable/naive woman’s life, this piece they have in the works is bound to be.. riveting.
