Sounds like the father is smart, but not quite smart enough to keep his family out of the business.

My father used to work for a large family owned business. The owner hired the smart son to run the business, and paid the dumb son a LARGE salary to stay out of town (seriously!).

That's what happens when you sleep with thier mom! I'm serious when I say that XXX couldn't hold down a job anywhere else.

There was a daughter that used to work here. Another piece of work. The guy than ran the shop then convinced the dad to pay her not to show up.

Sorry guys, my computer locked up and I hit the submit button 3 times and the result was 3 posts.
Does that make me a post whore?

Now back to your regular scheduled programing.

How observant of you. The boss and I do laugh about the "experts". When I'm left to my own devices (the boss and the vp and the nephew that runs one of the shops, are all gone at the same time) there are 2 schools of thought.

!. "You were here, I wasn't. I trust you to do/act in the best interest of the company."

2. "What got screwed up while we were out?"

The boss's attitude is the first one.

This thread is bringing a tear to my eye, it's too wonderful.


But, it can be better. Please go out and purchase a voice activated tape recorder ASAP and keep it with you when in the office!!

Hell, I think we'd be happy to take up a collection to buy you one!!!

I will happily contributre funds to some sort of listening/viewing device to be planted in XXX's work area.

This dude sounds awesome!

Frankly, I'm amazed you haven't shown up yet with the "XXX low-sides the 1000RR at the local Dairy Queen" story...

*does not want to jinx XXX on the CBR*

Highly unlikely. Not with the big, fat chicken strips he is sporting right now.

The nephew at work is a friend of mine. He had a conversation with XXX this morning. I almost dropped my coffee as he re-told the story.

As XXX, in his bright yellow scooter chick half helmet and matching ICON patch laden jacket, walks through the shop past the nephew's desk....

Nephew "You look like you should be riding a scooter."

XXX "I don't know of any scooter riders that wear a $400 ICON jacket."

Nephew "I was talking about your helmet."

XXX "This is my 70 mph helmet. I don't go over 70 mph with this helmet on. Any faster than that and the stuff that hits my face hurts."
