There are countless reasons why the Stripclub can be compared to high school. You have your cliques, class clowns, the kiss ups, the couples, the rich kids, and of course tons of drama! The cliques are somethings I’ve tried not to get involved in. I try to be nice to everyone alike. Come, do my job, and leave with a goal in mind — save save save! Even though I literally only have a few short more shifts it’s still entertaining.
One of the cliques at the club is what we like the call the OGs. They have been in the club or in this particular secular of the industry over 10, 15 and some even 20 years. One of our cage girls was first a stripper for 10 years and when that never grew successful became an employed cage girl. Now at nearly 60 she is still there with her select couple of friends/cocktail ‘supervisors’ — these are what we call the OGs. They bully, steal and at times try to demean the younger, prettier employees. They have never personally offended me, just based on their current situations. Well, there has been times when the cage girl has shorted some of us girls money and was made to pay it back– other than that its pretty simple.
This past week I gave my two weeks notice. I explained about the stealing and how I truly felt I needed to move on. This one particular cage women sat behind the curtain listening to a bit of mine and my managers conversation; one she wished to remain confidential in order to figure out the matter for herself. So now she has been going around telling people I am a rat! I few girls came to me and let me know and told me they would also go to management and defend the stealing. I mean who really likes having their money taken from them? They appreciated that someone finally was brave enough to tell management in the first place. It is a hard situation because you are scared to tell in fear you will get bullied out of your job. But I think, like myself, people are getting tired of leaving everyday shorted money by the ones who are supposed to be leading by example. I just hope whatever job I have next I can always set good examples and that my attitude be good and positive due to a true reflection of my leadership. #realstriplife
