So quit, already

 

I want to be respected for my mind

I want to be respected for my mind

Buffalo Bills cheerleaders feel underpaid and degraded, so they sue. Here’s how one plaintiff explains her plight:

I have always been a huge Buffalo Bills fan and it was always a dream of mine, since I was a little girl, to be a Buffalo Jill. I have danced my entire life and have also been a Zumba instructor for the past six years, so this was a huge accomplishment for me. What I had hoped was that it would open many doors, for this to be an experience of a lifetime.

But soon after joining I realized that it wasn’t what I expected — basically when I first saw the contract.

There were things in there that made you think, “Really?” Do they really think we don’t know this stuff? Just getting down to ridiculous detail about how we needed to act and talk and walk and dress.

So that’s when you walk out, girl. When I was 16 I decided to flip burgers at minimum wage and applied at MacDonald’s. As I sat in the back filling out an employment form I watched a kid report in and don a paper hat with “Trainee” emblazoned on it. Although that looked discouraging, I figured I could put up with the indignity for week or so, but then another kid came in, clearly past the trainee period, and his hat said “Hot Apple Pie”. I handed the uncompleted application to the manager and left to seek other employment.

Point is, no one has to be a Buffalo Tit Twitcher; it’s a part-time job, which I presume some girls want because they get to flounce around in front of crowds and maybe have a chance to date a tight end. Fine – but they don’t need the paltry wages, and they certainly don’t need the job. If they feel the position with its rules is beneath their dignity then good for them – I’m with them all the way, but the answer is, just don’t take the job to begin with or quit after you do.

It’s a free country.

    Dude –
    You passed on being a McDonald’s trainee? WHY?? You would have been PERFECT! A pimply faced, disgusting little 16 year old loner, who on his breaks reads “Catcher in the Rye”, alone by himself in the parking lot, instead of trying to bang the other 16 year old hottie burger servers?

    You would have been working there when it was still a teen paradise, and 75 year old PHD’s didn’t need to work there because of Libtard economics. It would have been McMuffburger Heaven Dude!! You could have been the Snatch Burgler!! You loser.

    And you would have looked good in one of those banana boat hats. To the extent you could ever look good. And you gave up a burger career to sell dirt? What is wrong with you? DON’T ANSWER THAT!!

    What do Michael Jackson and McDonalds have in common? They both stick their meat between 4-year-old buns!

    And back on topic – Why is a cheerleader like railway tracks? Because she has been laid all over the country!

    What do you get when you put 28 Alabama cheerleaders in one room? A full set of teeth!!

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    Also, the waiting list of young women who want the job is , from what I understand VERY long, so the employer can call the shots.

    I’ve always been given to understand the women who take the job on aren’t doing it for the job itself, but for the “benefits”, potentially meet and date football players, potentially raise one’s profile ( “Oh, yeah, I’m dating a Cheerleader with the NFL” apparently has a certainly cachet with some men, so it raises the young ladies desireability.. hence improves the dating pool for them.).

    And aside from looking for an man, I was given to understand it had other intangible bene’s too.

    But basically the entry requirements are fairly low and not that rare and the desirability of the job by candidates is high, so the the employer can be as picky as they like, and if they do not like you….NEXT candidate.
