Adillo, very funny. Thanks.
Mr. Buller, I don't agree with you.
Enough said.

When you own your own company or restaurant and you find that some of your profits must cover the expenses of chronic mistakes, write to me again.

One of the companies for which I worked had to write checks in the amount of 20,000 dollars when paper was placed into a printing machine on the wrong bias. A foolish mistake would mean that ink would crack when the paper was folded, and the job had to be run over again.

How many 20,000 thousand dollars checks would you write as a company owner for "just a simple mistake."

It's always easier to criticize those who have to make tough choices when the money is not your own.

I took part in six corporate reorganizations.

a just jest

i worked as a telemarketer briefly at age 19. i was paid poorly to bother people with a bad idea. knowing that, i did a crappy job of it and quit soon after. telemarketers bother the crap out of me now. i know, full circle, karma, all of that mess. however here is an anger managment tip. when you answer one of these calls, quickly agree with their pitch. tell them to hold on while you find your credit card. set the phone aside and wait for them to hang up. this is the quickest way to get on the don't call list.

LOL, I just inform telemarketers that I am actually "my brother" in town to "close the house" due to Chico's recent death.

Usually they say something like, "I'm sorry I caught you at a bad time."

I tell them it was no problem, and that the death was coming for quite a while.

They might ask about the cause. I respond, "Married women."

hey Chico Buller,
this is just a post but you seem more than just pissed off at the present. no resaon that you shouldn't be. i found some of your posts to be darker than need be since many here are in a pretty good place in their life. i hope you get what you want out of posting here, and your ceativity is much appreciated. i just want to know how much of it is for fun and venting verses how pissed off you are.
