One was expected to take part in local celebrity events whenever invited. One of the editors briefing me on my new role wanted to be sure I understood that most local celebrity events took place in the evening or even on weekends, outside normal working hours.

In my youthful cynicism, I may have assumed the lack of overtime pay was the real point of the whole stupid conversation. I was so thrilled with my new job that I would gladly have agreed to light janitorial duties in order to keep it.
