Before the club opened, I had a few staff members lined up. As an incentive, I told them if they only worked at my club, they would keep an extra 5% of their tips. If they wanted to work at other clubs, that’s fine but not tip break. Afterall, they can’t jump and come to work if they’re somewhere else, right?
Before we opened, one of the girls quit in a quite nasty message telling me I had no right to tell her how many jobs she could have, etc. You know, the drama queen. Thankfully I found out before we opened. But I was not smart enough to remove her from the group. Lesson learned too late.
A couple weeks go by and she comes in Carlton Club and starts asking me about why the club isn’t taking off and how I’m doing everything wrong. “Her men” laughed at the prices. I couldn’t resist saying “Did they think the prices were too high, or just too high to pay for you?” Yes, it was a catty jab but it went right over the bleached blonde roots.
She was telling me how I wasn’t making money, which I know isn’t true. She told me about all the men who come to see her and I said.. “So, go there.” She kept going on about all the guys who came to see her. “So, go there”. After about 30 minutes, the last “So, go there” was accompanied by an ejection and ban.
He’s where the lesson was learned too late. She popped into group chat and used the trailer park language she speaks to call me a few choice words. Naturally, the intelligent men and women of Carlton Club told her to go away cuz drama just isn’t our cup of tea.
I’m still quite flabbergasted that someone who doesn’t even escort, or own a club, or has ever managed a damn thing in her life, has the audacity to tell ANYONE how to do something the “right” way. This is the woman who told me that no one can tell her how to run her SL, yet she wants to tell me how to run mine. *SMDH*
Sadly, she probably won’t be the last.
