London scientist, Laura Fernee, says she can’t work because she’s ‘too attractive’
Being too beautiful has turned out to be a curse for one London woman as she claims that her good looks prevent her from keeping employement.
33-year-old Laura Fernee is no academic slouch, she has an earned doctorate in science, and she is surely qualified for employment in her scientific discipline; however, she says her appearance–slim figure, attractive face and glossy hair made her a target for sleazy advances from male colleagues and bitchiness from jealous females, according to a Daily Mirror report.
“It’s not my fault… I can’t help the way I look”, Fernee defends why she hasn’t worked in two years. ”I’m not lazy and I’m no bimbo.”
Apparently, the attention she got from men at her medical research job–being asked out for dates and finding romantic gifts on her desk, was too much for Dr. Fernee.
“Male colleagues were only interested in me for how I looked. I wanted them to recognise my achievements and my professionalism but all they saw was my face and body,” she said.
“Even when I was in a laboratory in scrubs with no make-up they still came on to me because of my natural attractiveness. There was nothing I could do to stop it.”
Fernee also says her fellow female counterparts at work were jealous of her beauty, causing them to hate her.
So now that she doesn’t work and gave up her nearly $50,000 salary in the lab, how does the 33-year-old Ms. Fernee support herself?
You guessed it…Mom and Dad.
According to a Daily Mail report, Miss Fernee’s parents – Catherine, 65, and Alan, 70 – inherited money from Laura’s grandfather, and now pay £2,000 a month in rent and bills for her flat in Notting Hill, London, as well as picking up her credit card payments.
That’s not all. They also shell out £1,500 a month for her designer clothes, shoes and handbags, and £700 on haircuts.
Miss Fernee pays £80 a week to work out at the gym and spends £1,000 a month on socializing.
Lazy, conceited, abused, cursed. What do you think?
