It's actually a funny promotion because I analyze the same reports that I designed. I even got to train my replacement, so I'm like, "Do it like this, and if you don't, I'll know."

I actually think that I got the promotion because I ruffled a few feathers last year. I pushed a $1.5 million write-off of expenses that were being held on non-commissioned assets, some of which were more than three-years old (a big no-no, according to accounting rules). Needless to say, that pissed off more than a few people since they hadn't budgeted for the rogue, pro-active accountant (a rare trait in the industry).

The division that I hit the hardest created a new position and asked me to fill it. I joked with my former boss that they were probably saying, "Just hire the kid. It's cheaper than letting him stay in his current position."

And for those of you who have no experience in the world of corporate finance, I apologize for just wasting 3 minutes of your time with a story that was absolutely meaningless to you.

:-b :-D

.........that's ok JT..it's not the first time !! ;)

Ouch!

You're on my hit-list now, Tom Thumb. Watch out!

B-)


Tom? :-?

And I'd like those 3 minutes back :-[ (although it doesn't actually take 3 minutes to read that; I read slowly, but not that slowly.)

I'm a certified bowling instructor, but make most of my money bowling in tournaments. B-) Online poker has been a very nice secondary (or would it be third? :-D ) income the last couple of years too. :-)

Wow, what a great way of life...

I'm a High School Student / Athlete / Tennis Player and in the Summer I detail cars / do odd jobs for our Family Ford Buisness.

Not only is it a nursery rhyme, but it's also a supermarket here in Texas. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Electical Engineering/Computer Science double major. :-o I'm working for a couple professors now just doing odd-job type stuff. Doesn't pay great, but it's mind numbingly easy (compared to the semester) and looks good on the resume. ;-D
