    J/K MN Jamie. You're still very vague about the job. What was it you did in your last employment?

    What about the Bears game. Do you have your ticket all squared away for that one now?

    All the McNuggets I can eat for the length of my employment with them ... Another of the many sticking points of the package that was negotiated.
    They initially offered, BigMac's , but I had to put my foot down for the McNuggets.

    I'm not vague, it's just as I stated earlier in the thread ... It's not like a normal job offer I have ever had ... it's that the COO liked me and felt my wide array of business exposure would fit into a position they felt they had a need for.
    I was told by the Director of H.R. today that the Director of Vendor Mana. made the comment about me that, "He fits all the weakness's that I have and then some".
    So from what I have gathered, I will be negotiating large contracts with outside vendors they have, creating a method and corresponding database to evaluate vendors they have contracts with using my newly aquired Six Sigma knowledge, and the rest is up in the air till I get my hands dirty and find out what is all needed.
    Again, doing basically the duties that the Director does, but feels she isn't "fully" versed in.


    It's an organization that is very aggressive, when it comes to growth and wants to go public within the next 4 yrs.
    It's a niche market within the mortgage industry that is kinda complicated to explain.

    Bears game ... Webby has invited me to be his guest.
    At least that is the last I have heard and nothing different to that effect as of yet.
    So, till I hear differently, that's the plan as of now.
    Been trying to pin Caj down for his plans, as I will be in town Thursday evening and have NOTHING to do all day Friday and Saturday ... so, anyone who wants to make some plans with me, let me know.
    As I have stated before, I'm coming to Minny just for the game and winging the rest.
    Also, if at all possible, looking for a ride to the game and back too include any and all tailgating, as the woman will have the vehicle available to us up in Detroit Lakes.
    I will be staying in the Rosemount/Apple Valley area.

    Six Sigma eh? Are you a green belt or black belt?

    As far as the game, I plan on staying overnight on Saturday & maybe staying in that area. We'll get you hooked up with a ride, one way or another.

    I just had a not-so-great expensive experience in Rosemount/Apple Valley last Friday that involved money changing hands, the police & terrorism, but that's another story.

    Green Belt Certified, no practical on the job experience as of yet.

    Yes, you do need to watch for the 5-0 in that area ... only ticket I have ever received was inbetween Rosemount/Apple Valley when we lived in Minny.
    Doing 38 mph in a 35 mph zone .... he was such an a$$hat.

    No, I did not get a ticket & I wasn't speeding. The cops were called because the security guard thought I might be up to a terroristic act. The cop was actually very polite.
