I realize Dear Reader that we are in the worst recession we have seen in at least 3 generations. But sometimes it seems that our corporate overlords are simply trying to take advantage. Now, In my previous position before I was so kindly shit canned a week before Christmas. I admit, I was paid quite well. Well enough that I am quite realistic in the fact that I will probably earn nowhere near what I was earning previously. While this kind of sucks, it is simply a reality and indeed I was prepared for it.
Now to take the uncomfortable question of money out of it, Let us just say in my previous position I was making 1000 carrots a year. Now with what your Humble Narrator can bring to the table for a corporation, my estimate which is incidentally based on fact (more about that later). My present market worth is somewhere between 800 and 900 carrots a year. Which is indeed fair in these trying times.
So while perusing the job boards and indeed making calls to my contacts I noticed an ad from a rather large corporation in my area. They wanted an advanced degree (check). The ability to manage a team (check). Advanced statistical ability (check). Knowledge in online, and offline media (check). Finance experience (check), and indeed programming ability in numerous languages which indeed I have. Oh they also wanted 10+ experience
Now in a number previous positions that I have been considered for. For the most part the companies wanted to pay around 700 carrots a year. But for the most part, there was no team to manage and usually they do not need a number of my wide breadth of skills thus making the pay in my opinion fair for the market we are in today.
As you could imagine Dear Reader, I was overjoyed when they contacted me. In addition it was relatively close to home. So much so I might even be persuaded to come down to 750 carrots! The interview went swimmingly well. I indeed had just about everything they were looking for (which is quite rare). Until we discussed the issue of carrots. The interviewer queried me concerning my former salary which I explained I indeed knew the market would not bare my previous worth and indeed was realistic and flexible. To which they were overjoyed since they only really wanted to pay 500 carrots!
Now Dear Reader, as someone who has been in the game as long as I have. I know damn well there isn’t a snowball chance in hell that they are going to get anyone even remotely qualified for 500 carrots. In fact the base salary for someone with the skills in one of the arcane yet highly sought after statistical programming languages they so desperately needed a number of rungs down the ladder from the position they were looking for is about 500 carrots.
Obviously I didn’t indeed pursue the “opportunity” if you could call it that. But that indeed once again makes me revel in the idiocy of our corporate overlords. Let us just say I was desperate and indeed took the position. Do they honestly think I would stick around the minute I found something that paid more appropriately for my skill set? Of course these are the same people complaining about the lack of loyalty from the modern employee.
There is nothing wrong with seeking a bargain Dear Reader. But you indeed get what you pay for. Now with that off to the Spanking Updates of the Week!
It is indeed August Dear Reader. Which other than another month of enjoying the scorching hot temperatures it is indeed time for the annual release of the yearly spanking epic, Exclusive Education 7! Once again we are treated to a classroom full of naughty ladies getting their wonderful derrieres spanked in front of the whole class. While our now retired Clare Fonda usually did the honors this year she is replaced by Sarah Gregory and Snow Mercy who herself is an accomplished spanker. These girls will be going home not only with homework but very sore bottoms. From Girl Spanks Girl or the better valued 5 site Clare Fonda Pass.
I have been remiss in my Reporting Dear Reader! For that I need to apologize to my friend the Able Amsterdam Authoritarian. You see a couple of weeks back he was perusing my fine site and noticed the comment Danielle had written to Yours Truly concerning being spanked by “Very Fat Men”. Now of course with his slim and athletic figure one would not think he would take offense. But indeed he did! Not only that, but he was kind enough to mention Your Humble Narrator during his video in which he strikes many blows upon her bare bottom for many a stout spankers. Being spanked for it twice now I am indeed sure that she deeply regrets sending me that email. This is the follow-up spanking our friend Triple A gives her on Real Life Spanking.
It seems that Clover Rock and her friend have been spending an inordinate amount of time in the barn. This is rather curious since this is also the preferred spot to deliver their spankings since they apparently lack woodsheds in jolly old England. Thankfully hay is rather soft to sit on and kind to a bruised and spanked bottom. From English Spankers.
I don’t mean this in a derogatory way but I have come completely convinced that our beloved Mr Masterson is a bit of a stoner. How else does one stay as calm as he does while spanking the daylights out of naughty girls like Lila Night. Now given many of the signs like Cheeto stained fingers are lacking. But I simply do not see any other way! Well regardless stoned or un-stoned he delivers a very hard and painful traditional OTK Spanking on unfortunate Lila. From Real Spanking Institute or the better valued 8 site Real Spanking Pass.
So our conservative crazies who have spent the last 4 years screaming about releasing a certain person’s birth certificate which was already available. Seem to be quite upset that us liberal commie bastards would like to see their ultra rich robot’s tax returns from before he started running for president which every other candidate has done in the past 40 years! Now I am indeed not one for guilt by association but it does indeed make you wonder what lovely things one can find in there. The preverbal spanking he is getting seems to be far outweighing what indeed would happen to him if he were to release them. I mean if someone would rather get a spanking perhaps he should talk to Piper Hill on Punished Brats.
You know while I am indeed a big fan of OTK Spankings sometimes due to the height of a particular naughty girl it just indeed looks silly. Adrienne Black who is 6’ something is indeed one of those girls. But despite their height they indeed need to be punished. What better way than to have them touch their toes and expose their bottoms for a good hard strapping. From Firm Hand Spanking.
It seems our lovely Pandora Blake did not learn her lesson from her first trip to the women’s incarceration center at Bars and Stripes. You would think she would have mended her ways. But indeed this is not to be so perhaps another stay as a guest at the famed prison and liberal use of the strap will teach her. From Bars and Stripes.
Finally for today, Japan is indeed known for its weird and wonderful ways. Today I have learned they have made it illegal to be fat! Now I am not entirely sure what the punishment is. Perhaps it is a spanking! From Handspanking.
