Since my last post I have been recovering on an emotional and mental level.
I was fired from Shotgun Willies for how I handled a situation in which I was having items thrown at me. It was a slow night and there was a group of people sitting in the VIP area next to the DJ booth. A hard candy appeared on my stage and I inquired to some bystanders who put it there. It was thrown from the VIP area. I proceeded to toss it back to them in a playful way and as a rejection of their “tip”. I called the newer manager Roman over to address their disrespect. He “talked to them”. At the end of my set, I was coming down the stairs near their party’s side and I saw a beaded bracelet fly past my head as I simultaneously see a man’s hand coming out of the throwing gesture. I lost my temper and went up to him on the other side of the banister and yelled that I saw him throw the bracelet at me. He was wasted and proceeded to disrespect me verbally. I told him to go fuck himself and I knock off a dude’s hat. Some witnesses saw what happened and were defending me, creating somewhat of a riot. The manager Roman and I had a brief discussion about what happened before I dismissed myself from the shift and left early for the night. After this incident, I worked a Monday and Tuesday shift, which Roman was managing, with no issue. I came in to work that Friday and two hours into my shift, I’m called to speak with another manager Machiek. In the middle of this Friday night shift, he tells me I’m fired for slapping a customer. I say I never slapped anyone and ask to see the video footage evidence. Management refuses to provide evidence. I leave. And I’m not going back.
I was shocked into a depresssion for a week until I gained the courage to reaudition at Diamond Cabaret, who rejected me six months prior. I got hired at Diamond the last week of February and I’ve been thriving there since. It is one billion times better than Shotgun Willies and I make a lot more. I have realized how unhappy I really was at Shotgun’s. I didn’t quite vibe with people there. I kept to myself and got “why are you by yourself?” a lot. I wasn’t involved in the coke scene, which made the majority of people not trust me. I’m not a nark about cocaine. I don’t care at all. But of course coke users probably would prefer to chill with other coke users.
There’s something extra fishy going on with management and ownership. I don’t know what it is, but I’m an observant person and I was there three or four days a week for two years. Something isn’t quite right. Regardless, the owners did not give me a good impression and that’s all I’ll say about that for now.
I have been livestreaming myself pole dancing on Instagram and will be posting the videos to Youtube.
I fly to Tampa at the end of March to vacation and dance at Thee Dollhouse.
