PBN Blues Series: ” Vampire Women” by Spark Plug Smith

Welcome back to another installment of our PBN Blues Series. Today we examine the dilemma of the husband enslaved by a wife’s greed, and the wife disappointed in her husband. As a worker, you will find situations that come to your door that are very startling. Detachment is vital, and so are your ethics. You may find that you are the only worker in the area, and thus could face a similar situation. Here is an interesting case.

All that glitters

Doretha P. and Horace. P are loyal customers at your small botanica. Not a month goes by without products for their home being replenished from your shelves. Blessing products, cleansers, and prosperity candles are on continuous renewal orders. All seems right with the world.

Of special note is the glowing face of Doretha P. . Married life suits her. She is immaculately attired at all times, nails manicured, and make-up perfectly applied. Her car is never over two years old, and she drips in diamonds. Yes, life is very sweet for her.

Horace. P. is fairly well off. He works seven days a week at their business. On Sundays, he works alone so that his wife can attend church and volunteer. He is a modest man, very shy, and always fatigued. He picks up the monthly order of products like clockwork. Never does he forget to tip.

However, for the past few months, the orders have been picked up with smaller totals, and this time he did not tip. His eyes appear red and haggard. One look at his shoes tells the story of excessive wear and hard work.

His wife appears happier than ever. She is radiant and adds to the order, despite his objection, by using his second credit card. You smile and complete the transaction.

Later that week, Doretha P. comes in to order a selection of dominance products. Added to this are candles and Essence of Bend Over oil.  She smiles wryly, and tells you she has now secured a sugar daddy on the side. While her husband is working his way into bankruptcy, she is setting up a new relationship to which she can escape. Her intention is to drain Horace P. dry, divorce him, and move away.

You have known Horace P. longer than her. He conducts himself honorably, and absolutely adores his wife. He is the classic example of a fool for love.

But, twenty dollars is twenty dollars. You add the spell set to her total, and watch her leave. Your cash register closes with a snap, much like the trap she is setting.

 

An ethical question

Your ethics can come into play in this. There are multiple paths before you. What do you do?

 

Money is not everything

You choose to inform Doretha P.  that because of the relationship you have with them as a married couple, you cannot be a party to this. She is offended and reminds you that you are just a business person, and to mind your own. You ask her to leave.  She states she will find a worker elsewhere.

You wish her success in her future endeavors and close the door after her. Because you are morally outraged, you do some work to banish her. You also make sure to do some protection work for your business, just in case she tries to bad mouth you.

You wish her success in her future endeavors and close the door after her. Because you are morally outraged, you do some work to expose her to her husband. The next time her Horace P. comes into your shop, he picks up his last order and questions why you offended his wife. He then imparts a web of lies that she has told him about you insulting her out of jealousy.

You attempt to clear it up, but he is furious. He tells you how disappointed he is and walks out with his purchases. You shake your head and remind yourself that this is why you are not supposed to get involved with clients.

A year later, he returns to your shop. He is divorced and seeking to apologize to you. His wife’s lies have been exposed and he feels like a fool.

What would you do?

Ultimately, the question of ethics is personal. It is that which makes us individuals withing the societal whole when it comes to our actions. This case is only one of many, with different outcomes not discussed here.
