I do trouble-shooting for small business on a contract basis. I'm not paid enough to call myself a consultant.

I do mostly project management type stuff now for part catalogs. Before that I was a zone/dealer rep for one of the big three.

I like my description here best though.... "Auto industry trouble maker". I try to live up to that most every day.

(And thanks to the idiocy from above, today it's been remarkably easy....)

I said, "You know what David, I'm fine, not happy to be here and I hate you." He said, "You know what? That hurts. People walk in here all the time saying to me, I hate you. Imagine for just a moment how your day would go if every 3 minutes you heard that." I felt just awful, apologized and reminded him that when I get nervous or anxious, I get giddy, very familiar and sarcastic. So Larry, if I've come across over the last few months with you as being just that, I apologize to you too.

Ive been a dentist for about 13 years and married about 17 years, so as u can imagine , ive been called a lot worse than anything that might have been said in previous posts. No apologies required, its all part of the job. But to let u in on a secret, the reason we wear masks is not only for sanitary reasons, but to hide our smiles as we are giving shots Just kidding

At night I operate an Industrial Treatment Plant for a paper factory's wastewater stream, and during the day I'm a Civil Engineering student.

I'm a six sigma business analyst. It's interesting, changes every day and I get to travel to some interesting places. The only drawback is that I sometimes over analyze how I'm doing something to the point where I'll change the drawers/furniture/cupboard contents around to improve the workflow.
