Stephen is working as an assistant in Carrie’s antiques shop and thinks he is doing a good job, but when Carrie turns up to check the day’s takings, she doesn’t seem too pleased. She has noticed that a Chinese vase has been sold but that there doesn’t seem to be much money in the till.
When she asks Stephen about the vase, he tells her that he sold it for £20 as that was what was on the price ticket. Carries can’t believe it as the vase is worth £2000. Carrie is furious and says that she will have to take the money out of Stephen’s wages. Stephen objects as he realises it will take ages to pay back the cost of the vase and asks if there is an alternative. Carrie says that she will reduce the amount he has to pay if he accepts a punishment and says that she will reduce the amount by £10 for every stroke of the cane that she gives him. She also says that he will have to be completely naked for the punishment and that she will warm his bottom up before the cane with a good spanking and some implements. Although he’s not happy, Stephen knows that he will have to accept the punishment.
When she has finished punishing Stephen, Carrie goes to answer the phone. She comes back a few minutes later and tells Stephen that the customer who purchased the vase has rung to say that he had the vase valued and found that it was, as he thought, worth a lot more than £20. As he didn’t want to get the assistant who sold the vase to him in to trouble, he said that he would pay the full price for it. When Stephen hears this, he says that he has been punished for nothing. Carrie agrees and asks if he would like to spank and cane her in return. Of course, Stephen accepts the offer and at the end of the day they both have very red bottoms but Carrie has made a profit on the vase and gives Stephen a bonus for selling such an expensive item.
