Jeffrey Epstein was not only one pervy dude, he walked on the side of bizarre more than once.
The latest weirdness was submitted as evidence in the trial (which is still going on, mind you) of Epstein’s longtime girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell.
It is a 58 page manual — an actual instruction book — of things people were not allowed to say or do whilst in his house.
The weird — and LONG — manual was passed out to every single person who
unfortunately had the pleasure of working for Mr. Epstein in his home.
I am so glad — for more than one reason — that I was not a member of his household staff. There is absolutely no way that I would be able to keep up with his eccentric demands.
The manual, which includes directions like “do not address Mr Epstein, Ms Maxwell and their guests with your hands in your pockets,” was handed out to all staff members of Epstein’s Palm Beach, Florida, home.Yahoo News
This book had directions for everything from talking, to eating, to pre-arrival directions, to how to answer the phone, to escorting guests to their rooms, and SO much more — 58 pages worth of “more.”
Let’s just talk a minute about the things that people were not permitted to say.
- “No problem”
- “You bet”
- “I dunno”
Yikes. He was a serious taskmaster.
He did have a list of alternate things to say instead of saying something off the “no-no” list.
- “Yes, Mr. ______”
- “Of course, Ms. ______”
- “My pleasure”
- “It’s no trouble at all”
- “With pleasure”
- “It is no trouble at all”
- “With pleasure”
- “I would be very pleased to”
- “You are quite right”
- “I have no idea, but I will find out immediately”
Then there were other things like: Thou shalt not make direct eye contact, thou shalt answer the phone within three rings, and “the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs,” never disclose Mr. Epstein or Ms. Maxwell’s activities or whereabouts to anyone.
(Okay, I embellished that just a little … and threw in a quote from Gremlins. The gist is the same.)
Working for this dude was no joke. He seems to be even more strict than working for Disney — and they are notorious for their customer service expectations.
He even had directions for when and where pens had to be placed. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I lose it when my kids move my pens. But, he seriously had written specific details for pens.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial is expected to last about six weeks. The indictment against Maxwell accuses her of running the child sex-trafficking operation together with Mr. Epstein.
