In math class I asked my friend what she did for a job. She simply handed me this note.

It was hard to create a sensible sentence here

What does it say?

Note: You may need a calculator! Then again, you may not...

The answer is

I SELL BIG BEIGE SEESHELLS (a misspelling of SEASHELLS?).

Why?

Type in the given number on a calculator with a seven-segment display and turn the calculator upside down so that 3 becomes E, 7 becomes L, and so on.

Much easier than usual from you, Tryth! :-)
