Can’t Do It Anymore

There comes a time when we need to face facts and make some hard decisions. I know it is the holiday season and all, but I’ve decided I need to cut back on some of my employees. Their salary requirements are simply too steep for my budget. I’ve been reducing my dependence on their services over the course of time. I’ve reached the point where I’m ready to sever the relationship completely and move on.

So, who am I cutting loose? All of those expensive actors, actresses, musicians and athletes who are now earning millions of dollars per endeavor. Don’t get me wrong. I love the entertainment they provide. And I’m fortunate I don’t have to pay their entire salary. Their expensive life styles and gigantic paychecks are starting to effect my bottom line though. The piece of their salary I contribute to through movie tickets, CD purchases, sports passes and such is simply getting to be too high. It’s not that I don’t value their effort or their talent. I’m just not sure it’s worth millions of dollars for a short piece of their time. Frankly, you’d be hard pressed to convince me anyone is truly worth earning in months what one couldn’t even begin to spend in 50 lifetimes.

So, that’s that. I’m putting my footdown and saying no more. When they are willing to work for me again at a more reasonable price, I’ll consider changing my mind. Until then, I’m going to seek out less expensive providers who are able to entertain me without bleeding me dry.

  1. We go to the movies only once in a blue moon. The Harry Potter movies for the boys and ONLY the really good ones for the adults. It’s just too pricey anymore.
