Labor Day is here to signal the end of summer. It's the last day for primary colors, anything white, straw hats, seer sucker suits and for packing the gauzy skirts and halter tops away. But by no means was Labor Day created to mark the change of season. It is to commemorate American workers who help make our business and country thrive and a reminder to treat them with respect. Where would you be without a personal assistant to anticipate your needs; or a Word Processor following faithfully your illegible scrawl or your driver waiting patiently to bring you to and from the office? But too often, you take their services for granted. That's when a bottom - blistering spanking from a strong Disciplinarian is needed to remind you of proper protocol.
For your own good, you are put in the subordinate position; this means in your office and fully bare. Then you're lead by the ear to the corner with your nose touching the wall and hands behind your back. There you will stand, flush with fear and anticipation as she recites the litany of reasons it is wise to respect your staff; and that your zingers and tirade inhibit creativity costing the company potential earnings. For that alone, I feel you should be publicly thrashed.
From the desk, you're bent over a chair and positioned just so. Then, on behalf of all terrified personnel, your bottom is generously sprayed with water and a flat leather strap roundly slaps your bare behind. And since a sound spanking should be - full of sound - the snap of leather on your wet skin will ring in your ears.
Then after sixty or so lashes of the strap (or before her arm gets tired) sterner measures will take place and you feel for the crack of the hairbrush on your bruised and sore behind. Scream 'til your face is blue. She's heard it all before. And please, spare her the Three P's: Protests, Pleading, and Promises. By now they are music to her ears (and that water bottle can be replaced with rubbing alcohol; so quit while you're ahead).
And then she's done. Congratulations! This valuable reminder will hold you in good stead the coming fiscal year. You won't soon forget a happy worker is a productive one and the key to success is an appreciative boss with a nicely burning bottom.
And that is the purpose of Labor Day.
