Should I train my staff to stand to attention whenever a lady arrives at the manor?

Asked by ucme (50031points) July 29th, 2016

Or might that be considered inappropriate in this day & age?

THAT should have been done long ago. The butler should also be at her beck and call.

@ucme It would seem your “staff” would stand at attention in the presence of a lady with little or no training.

Since you are so obviously a genuine and renowned “bon vivant”, the sheer volume of women passing through the estate would compel the staff to a stance of attention for the considerable majority of time allotted their working lives. Alas, another troublesome reality confronting those of privilege.

You’re clearly getting old if you have to “train” your staff. May want to try the little blue pills.

Train my staff to remain calm & disciplined in the presence of ladies, no pills necessary, quite the opposite in fact

Thank goodness, magine how awkward it would be stunning around handing out blue pills to the already tense staff!

Sorry RUNNING not stunning! Keyboard doing its own thing!

What training methods will you employ? Shock collars?

Thanks to the mods for allowing this question, you have a sense of humour after all ;-}

Cheers for the responses peeps, no staff were fired as a result of this, although one proud member took particular exception at the suggestion of some form of medication, soon laughed off though

@Haleth Joan Rivers defined the rimshot as “ba dum dum”. I guess her drummer neglects the cymbals.

Humorous questions are allowed in the Social section. Purely humorous questions like these seem to do best.

However, framing a serious question humorously seems to not be well received here.

I’m not suggesting anyone should stop trying.

@SecondHandStoke Agreed, but I thought maybe it may have been viewed as a little self indulgent

SecondHandStoke's avatar

@ucme

No worries.

At least I understand that self indulgence is the meaning of life.

@SecondHandStoke self indulgence is the meaning of life

LOL!

^ Funny but true.

@ucme

Train your staff to stand at attention the moment a lady pulls her chemise off one shoulder.
