Fired and Rehired in 15 minutes


Hey guys! Tryin to catch up a bit on the thread, been through a lot in the last week. We bought our segment from corp last week (100% employee owned now ) so we are free from the "man". Bastards all but torpedoed the company that we built from ruins. They basically robbed all of our computer forensic guys and tossed us to the side. Fully loaded our bottom line with HR, exec wages, insurance and whatever to show us a loss. Well, we are not a loss and will prosper in the future...F them...

Mr. G, could you please plug the snow hole in the wall .

Cheers,
Don

I was taught to SHARE! In this case it's called MISERY.
Say, I see that you folks there in that area set a new record for snowfall for a day......9 inches. Hang in there, pard......spring will eventually get here.
By the way, congrats on the employee owned company!! Perhaps you could hire my son....been outa work for 8 months now.

Predictions here were that we would get at least an inch of snow. Turned out to be a false alarm but I can in great confidence tell all of you that if the snow had fallen and the temps allowed any ice the local roads would have looked like a Saturday night demolition derby and beer bash. No one here has a clue in regards to driving in icing conditions. None.

A big "way to go" to you, Don, and your fellow employees!

Are there even snow plows in Texas?

Sounds like a stupid question, but I'm curious.

They have everything in Dallas... including 12'' of snow predicted at the airport today. Just want to thank "ya'll" (from everyone here in montana) for takin the snow hit this winter. Its been nice to see someone other than the north get to experiance the fun of shoveling that crap. El NINO is a wonderful thing....

I figured they would, but wasn't 100% sure.

Don, thats such a great thing! God only knows whats happened behind the scenes. One thing that has me seeing total red is the blatant corporate fiscal rape in our world, internal or otherwise. I'm happy for you mate, sounds like you guys have earnt your place in the world well and truly through struggle, long may you live and benefit your industry.


Snowplow, whats that?

Given the condition of (what's left of) the plane, I'm not sure they'll ever be able to find out. I don't believe it's ever going back to "altitude" again, unless it's being transported.

Dwells, congratulations on the buyout! I hope you guys have a long, profitable history.

Ok guys, I'm back from the road trip. Saddle sore and ready to get some sleep here in a bit. Weather wasn't worth a hill of beans for flying but there was this beautiful field with a lot of room and great country all around it just begging to be flown. But with snow coming down I wasn't going to chance icing up in those conditions.

Got home to Bonaire (about 20 miles south of Macon) to find snow in the yard still! Highly unlike the normal weather in this neck of the woods! But we made it back safe and sound and I'll unload the flippin truck tomorrow! I'm off to bed here!!! More tomorrow
