Such as Randi Newton, a former financial analyst at Morgan Stanley who got canned and decided to climb up on the pole to make a few shekels ("A few nights after I got laid off, I went with friends to a strip club to get drunk and forget my unemployment troubles," Newton said. "The manager offered me a job as a dancer. I thought it was different. And fun.")
Ahhhh....... the law of unintended consequences strikes again. Being a Chippendale has always been my backup plan.
