Should I fire the pool boy?

I need advice. First, how many calories could I really burn chasing a pool boy? Second, he has great abs and up until last week, kept the pool spotless. However, since the season began and all of my lady friends have been visiting, his role has expanded, to pouring champagne, fetching snacks, fluffing towels, that kind of thing. At first, I thought it was brilliant and maybe I could increase his wages. But then, I noticed he is consuming more champagne than he pours. This morning I swam straight into a raccoon. A living racoon. Should I fire Rudolf?

    Can I exchange lives with you? My gardener has bad teeth and looks emaciated, so sadly I have nothing to offer in exchange. Perhaps, a slummy sort of adventure?

    Yes please, fire him and send his butt over here. I'll see that he gets the punishment he deserves.

    So just the other day I was cleaning this ladies pool and a raccoon jumped right in front of her as she was swimming. I wonder if I will get fired.

    I say fire him, hire me, and let's talk about some more fantasies of yours, Ms. Betty. In a PM of course.

    Thank you, darlings, for your valuable input. It's like my third husband always said: "Dear, if you are unhappy with the first pool boy, just hire a second one to manage him". I abhor confrontation, so I've asked my tennis instructor to handle the whole thing. I can always just stock more champagne. And the raccoons are such precious little creatures, when you've been drinking.

    Exactly. Consider this thread an open call for pool boys.

    I don't have a pool either. :/ I have a hammock. Are their hammock boys? I want drinks poured, continuous fanning, and the hammock rocked. Please send resumes and uniform pictures for consideration.

    You are brilliant and have just created a new growth industry. Now, we just need to funnel applicants from the worst college fraternities & direct hire.

    indubitably, forthwith.

    Do you live anywhere near a major sporting university? If so you should have no worries finding replacement abs. Perhaps keep the old pool boy long enough to train up the new pool boy before firing him. One less chore.

    Um first off, and this is coming from a lady of leisure, you don't fire him...that's crass you are doing right having someone else handle that.

    Secondly, you need a valet to be fluffing the towels and such, the pool boy is there for the pool...he should be in his "uniform" flexing his muscles handling that big long pole they all have. He could give some hands on swimming instruction and possibly the odd rub down after a hard swim. But sweetie....you need to hire more help.
