Thank you to everyone for their wonderful advice. The response was overwhelming, and I really appreciate all of it...

Except for whatever asshole keeps popping in with the comment "everyone who works in a strip club is a whore." Seriously, get a new line, I've had to delete it like seven times.

Someone in a previous comment was curious as to what went down between Monique and Duke. I asked around tonight and this is what I know:

While Monique was back in VIP with Purity, Monica, and Chris; she was called to the stage for her set. She decided she was making more money in VIP than she would onstage, so she ignored her call to duty.

That pissed Duke off. Here's why, for those of you "not in the know."

There is a list in the DJ booth of all dancers in the order they arrived and signed in. The girls are called to stage to perform their sets in that order, so after a while the girls know approximately when they're going up. Therefore, it makes it easier for them to know when they have time to sit down, do a lap dance, etcetera before going on stage to perform.

When a dancer does not go up for her set, the DJ has to call the next girl on the list. There's no telling where this girl is, or what she's doing; considering she figured she had approximately 9 minutes before she was supposed to go up. Meanwhile, customers are stuck staring at an empty stage, wondering what is going on.

That is why Duke went to find Monique, to figure out where she was and why she was no longer on stage. As it is with any good dramatic incident, one argument turned into another and ended up with both of them in the dressing room going round for round.

Now there's a sign on the mirror warning the girls if they're late for their set it's a five dollar fine.

No one was late tonight!

I have a question:

Why is it that whenever I go to a strip club most of the guys there are sitting around with frowns and not looking happy and such?

When I go to the strip club i always have a smile on my face and am as happy as can be!

Good to hear the details.
I was kind of hoping for some kind of torid and fun reason for it all.

Does that make me a bad person?

I remember being at a club on the road once where the DJ was constantly breaking in to songs to bitch at dancers to not be late for their stage show. Threatening them on mic with fines. He was seriously cramping my good time. I completely understand the need to keep on schedule, but I wanted to go up and tell him to keep that stuff out of earshot. Customers don't need to hear the drama. At least, I didn't!

Good explanation, by the way.

I really enjoy reading your posts for the past couple of months now. Just wanted to say thanks for spelling etcetera right. NOBODY ever spells that right and they always abbreviate it wrong.

Anal retentively yours,

Read Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt. He will convince you that a $5 fine is not the way to go, but that a $10 bonus for being on time will work.
