Extra-Marital Affairs Site Claims Accountants are Kings of Romance Because Their Jobs are Boring

Well this ought to brighten up your day:

A dating website that specialises in organising affairs for married people has said that accountants and those who work in the financial sectors are the most exciting people to go on dates with.

According to Illicitencounters.com, accountants are most likely to find an interesting topic of conversation – largely because they realise their day job isn't particularly interesting to most people.

Website spokesman Mike Taylor said: "Understanding that their job may not be the most interesting enables accountants to expand their repertoire of conversation topics and concentrate on their date, helping to make them feel more special.

Or, maybe it's the fact that they are looking to have an affair and save all that boring shit about PCAOB inspectors and inventory counts for their spouses.

The report goes on to say that those who work in the financial sector are one of the top five most common newcomers to the site, which suggests that millions of number-crunchers are desperate for thrills once they leave the office for the day.

Let's just hope that they're not cheating on equations as much as they are on their wives.

Equations? Guy, it's accounting, not math. Still, I could see how a reasonable person might assume an accountant looking for a little on the side might be one of those unethical toolbags we often hear about but do you think Scott London cheated on his wife?

Besides, why wouldn't you just lie and claim to be a doctor?
