Job Hunting

A couple of weeks ago, I reported that My Beloved had been summarily fired (and via email, the low, slimy cowards!) from a line he had advanced by 10-20% every year he worked for them. He was Rep of the Year for this company year before last. Well, that's business in America for you - it's a cutthroat world.

Anyway, enough bitter ranting about those turkeys!

We have some good news to share for a change. Some of the industry friends who took the time to call him and commiserate had leads on other lines that he could apply for. He met last week with the head of one of them, and came away with not one but two offers, with a possibility of a third!

So, enjoy this shot of My Beloved in his robe and slippers, leisurely reading the daily paper. He won't be doing this much longer - he has lines to rep, people to meet, and a great big smile on his face.

And the "sllmy" ones will be crying in their beer when that 10-15% doesn't materialize again. Go Beloved.

Well congrats on the offers and sorry for the loss of all that free time.Hopefully the offers will be in direct competition with the slime balls that should have known better, Cheers!

Jann, let's hope so! >:-D

Toons, we can only hope. It would be fun to eat their lunch.

Cookiecrumb, yes, he's adorable at all times of the day.

Chilebrown, and how would you know? Been watching '70s porn lately?

Chilebrown, oh, I see. I thought you were suggesting that as My Beloved's porn star name. What moniker would you suggest for him?

Zoomie, what wonderful news! Congratulations to your man--he'd better enjoy those leisurely mornings before he's back to the old grind! Cute picture, too!

You GO Mr. Zoomie's DH. What great news! He deserves the best (well, he's got you) but a job would be so peachy-oh!
70's porn look? Oh do tell. I'm Miss innocent here but never to old to learn something new.

Nancy, I'm afraid I can't enlighten you here as I'm pretty innocent regarding porn looks, too. I'll leave that to Chilebrown, who seems to know. :-D Thanks for the kind words.

I am having a good chuckle at your denial of the Adult film industy of the 70's. It was the end of the era of 'Free Love'. I have a feeling that you Golden Girls had a secret longing to have Ron Jeremy (The Hedgehog) as a roomate.

Chilebrown, I'm glad you are amused but then so am I. The Hedgehog??? Really???

I'm not sure how the comments ended up discussing porn (from the 70s no less!) - - - I just stopped by to say congratulations on the job front!
And here's to a sweet retirement whenever that day comes by his choice, not the foolish ones!

P.S. Now all I can hear is that odd 70s porn music: bow-chicka-wow-wow... ;o)

O good news indeed. Wonderful.

Greg, yes, we are pleased. This opportunity won't replace all the income lost from the other line, but it's a good start.

Pink Granite, I think Chilebrown was inspired by the photo of My Beloved in his bathrobe and the rest just took off from there. Sorry about the bow-chicka-wow-wow in your head. :-)

Ms. Mouse, happy news, eh? It made him feel much better.
