My wife's career
My wife Julie and I have been married for 8 years. She is a personal assistant to the CEO of her company and has translation ability with Spanish and Mandarin. She has had essentially the same job with two other trade-oriented businesses in the last four years. She makes good money. I do financial planning, working from home.
Her problem is she is also hot: 32 y.o., 5'6", 32-23-34.
In each of her previous two jobs she did good work and wanted to move up the ladder. In each case her boss told her if she wanted to move up she had to f*** him on a regular basis. She quit both jobs.
Her present job seemed like a great opportunity, and for six months she loved it. About a month ago she began to come home depressed, but she wouldn't tell me why. Finally last night she told me, tearfully, that her boss has started pressuring her to f*** him if she wants a raise or a promotion. A few days after he started telling her this she had lunch with a couple of other women who work in similar jobs. When they heard her story they told her that it was lousy, but their bosses did it too- it seemed to be standard in that career niche in our area. Each of them said she f***** her boss whenever he asked for it, but after a while he moved on to another woman.
Her only options were to quit, refuse her boss and get less and less opportunity in the company, or f*** him. She didn't think going to HR was an option because they had a reputation for covering up the executives' indiscretions.
She asked me what she should do. I was furious at her boss and screaming, which didn't help anything. When I calmed down I asked her to let me think about it overnight.
The next morning, after tossing and turning most of the night, I told her what I thought. I said I would give her a hall pass only good for f****** her boss to help her career. She cried some more and then said she would do it. Then she left for work and it was my turn to cry.
