Lilly Faye's Guide to Business: Benefits Are Key to Employee Retention (Part 2 of 4)

Lilly Faye: Hi Cali.

Cali: Hey, how you doin' Lilly Faye?

Lilly Faye: Being a boss is turning out to be more of a headache than I expected. If Dizzie doesn't get his act together soon, I may have an opening for a new unpaid blog intern. Are you interested?

Cali: I'd love to be neighborly and help you out Lilly Faye, but I'm on guard duty pretty much 24/7. I really don't have time to take on another job. Thanks for thinking of me, though.

Lilly Faye: Well, do me a favor and don't mention this to Dizzie.

Cali: Don't worry about that. Dizzie and I aren't exactly water bowl buddies. 


Lilly Faye: Dizzie, I've been thinking. I still can't offer you a salary, but I do want to give you an incentive to keep working for me. How would you feel about an all-expenses-paid beach vacation, courtesy of the blog?

Dizzie: Seriously, Boss? Oh wow, I'd love that! Can we go to Tahiti? I've always wanted to go somewhere exotic.

Alfie: You should ask her how she can afford to take you on a trip, when she doesn't have any money to pay you.

Dizzie: Who cares? It's a beach vacation! Woo, hoo!

Lilly Faye: We're not going to Tahiti, Diz. It's too far away.

Dizzie: Hawaii, then?

Lilly Faye: Hawaii is almost as far away as Tahiti.

Dizzie: The Caribbean?

Lilly Faye: Somewhere closer.

Dizzie: Hmmmm. I know! Cape Cod! There's a huge Portuguese population in Cape Cod. I could immerse myself in my native culture...the people...the language...the food. I can't wait to taste salt cod and sweet bread. I can almost smell the fish stew already!

Alfie: Something about this does smell fishy.

Lilly Faye: Closer, Diz.

Dizzie: Closer than Cape Cod? How close, exactly, Boss?

Lilly Faye: We'll walk!

To be continued...
