Not. Enough. Money...

The radio station I left two years ago occasionally calls to ask if I can record commercials for them.  When I worked there, I was the only female announcer to do commercials, and they haven't hired any new female announcers since.
It doesn't happen often because it's a little awkward being having me there.
They start out offering me money to do it, then tell me who the client is.

Last week, I got another one of these calls.
"...wondering if you'd be willing to come in to record an ad.  We'd pay you.  It's for a political candidate."

When I worked at the station, it didn't matter what the subject matter was, I was required to record it as part of my job duties.  No questions.
But, they don't pay my salary anymore...

"Who's the candidate?" I want to know.

Omg, you guys.
It was this guy.

I said no.
In fact, my exact words were, "Oh hell, no."

There's not enough money, folks.  Wow.

Good for you! Stand your ground (they can't fire you, after all)!

Did you laugh manically? I would have laughed manically before hanging up...

I wish I had, Thumper.
I may have done a spit-take during the call, though. Is that close enough?

Because your comment was just so good, posting it once wasn't enough for Blogger. ;-)
