Why is this in the General section when there is a Parenting section?
About the retarded video, BTW aggrandizing used by nathanm is a fantastic description.
It's the subtle deception by omission that gets me. It's reminds me of the nonsense one would encounter in a commercial for becoming a paid killer in a green costume.
1. Only one prerequisite/qualification: that you can have sex
2. You can't get fired
3. Your "associate" can become your slave up to including physical beatings which are not only tolerated, but in many cases encouraged by your peers
4. You can work part time hours even though everyone will assume you work full time
5. You have untold amounts of power
6. You will receive constant praise, at least initiallly, even if you suck at the job
7. You can discharge any fucked up shit from your past into your "associate" with little chance of getting caught or being held accountable
8. If after years of doing a lousy job, virtually no one will have the courage to reprimand you
9. Your peers and other associates, with few exceptions, will take your side should you choose to employ and inflict emotional or psychological distress on any associate that expresses a grievance towards you for a job NOT well done.
