I just had a guy in my clinic yesterday for a DOT physical.

He's moving to NoDak.

Oh, he won't make 350K per year, but he's going to make a lot more than I do as a doctor.

Much as I like $, you couldn't pay me enough to move there.

Sorry, North Dakota. Great people and great politics, but the ungodly plains and emptiness. I'd go nuts.

Well, working in a strip club is not a glamorous life, that’s for sure, even working behind the bar.

The two “normal” women I spoke of didn’t do it for long....a temporary cash-crunch solution. The one without kids was between jobs. Interesting person, and the reason she made as much as she did was because she was trained in ballet. Even though when I first met her, we started off on the wrong foot, but we got to be good friends after awhile. The other one was nice too, and was never a problem. Because she was a genuinely nice human being, of course, all the other gals hated her guts.

Both of subsequently moved on to well-paying, normal jobs; both finished their university education (practical degrees, too: engineering with one and a law degree for the other - she passed the Oregon State Bar) and I still keep in touch with both of them. The others I wouldn’t give a plugged nickel for.

My friends wife was a stripper. Apparently she made more money stripping than finding use for her masters in literature from Yale.

I’ve heard similar stories.

One of the women I worked with had a Bachelor’s in....(wait for it).....

Humanities. The “Would-You-Like-To-Supersize-Your-Order” degree, in other words. But at least she was making decent money stripping, enough to keep a roof over her head (as well as her useless husband) and food in the fridge.

And of course, oceans of booze. In fairness, I guess I’d be an alcoholic if I were married to her loser husband as well.

Sad but true. How cheap we are to ourselves.

Nice ending to your story of those two. Hope the others grew up an out of that crap.

Hmmmm...You know....you’ve got a movie script there. I think everybody THINKS that a “decent” woman could put herself through school doing this and have wondered about it.....

For that kind of money, I’d take off my clothes so people could gawk. (make a great weight loss program)


I was thinking of giving it a shot but I’m afraid they’d want me to shave my legs. and pits. and chest. and back. and shoulders. and knuckles.

The money doesn’t seem worth all the trouble.

but club owners were concerned with IRS attention and prohibited employees from speaking to the press.

Now why would club owners not want attention from the IRS in an (almost) all cash business?
