There is no way I'm being someone's personal bit#h for that amount of money. After a day, I'd probably tie the owner up, take a dump in his mouth, and line their precious yacht with explosives.

I'd rather wash dishes for minimum wage.
That's why I have worked the sportfishing end of the "yachting" world. The "yachty's I have been familiar with seem to dislike their jobs. Some of their boss's can be very demanding. I worked for a good boss who had a motor yacht as well as the sportfishing boat that I worked on. The yacht was crewed by Brits and a New Zealander. He hired them because they are more service oriented. For the sportfish he wanted an american crew because he wanted us to be able to guide him to the fish and not suck up. It seems on the sportfish he liked to cook and make drinks where on the yacht he had crew members for that. needless to say there seemed to be a bit of resentment towards us from the "yachty's". The steward wouldn't even buy drinks and assorted other things when stocking the yacht unless the boss and his family liked it. On a provision run in Panama we went shopping together and the yacht crew kept saying to us that we couldn't get such & such because the boss didn't like them. Oh well, we liked them. And the boss knew we always had a secret stash of junk and he would raid the sportfish. It was actually pretty funny.

Different world. From what I've seen, I could never work on a motor yacht but crewing on sportfishers has been my life. Similar but so different.

I would like to add that while I think Mitt Romney would have been a rotten president, he may not be that bad to work for.
