Google Tom Thumb.


I don't think I want to know, do I?

For God's sake, man! It's a kids story about a guy the size of a thumb.

After working for corporate america for 20+ years, I started my own business. Last week was my 1 year aniversary :-)

Working for myself instead of managing others has been a great experience that I highly recommend. ;-D

Babysit is the right word, my friend. One of the Controllers in my office is dating one of our Customer Service managers, and he has told her some insane stories about those phone reps.

At least you didn't forget that we have big guns too. Every single one of us has a rifle strapped somewhere in our trucks amongst the beer cans, and even our dogs know how to shoot something small like a .38. Be careful if you ever come to Texas Acs. Heh, heh, heh. }:-)

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.....

Yep my office is like an after-school special run amuck... Our female reps have 5 classes...
1. pregnant
2. pregant (don't know it yet)
3. will be pregnant within 3 months
4. post menopause
5. actually use birth control

Class 5 is a verrrrry small demographic in our center.
