"Position Vacant: Two old women residing at Providence Retirement Villa seek male assistant for casual exploitation and good-natured humiliation. The salary is generous, how hard could the job be?" Well, none have lasted longer than a week. Most boys leave in tears. Ruthie Midona works in Providence's front office, and if she can run the place well, she has a shot at being the new manager. Then Teddy Prescott arrives in town. Ruthie knows how this sweetly selfish rich boy can earn his keep-and be out of her hair in under a week. After all, there is a position vacant.
