We won the biggest project in the history of my company today. I can't tell anyone what it is at the moment, but we won it and it's really cool.


Arrrrrrr! (Flex, flex.)


Receiving line is at the right. Feel free to offer your congratulations or to jealously tell me to do obscene things to myself.

Very cool. Love landing those big projects. They're what helps the company move forward and put them in a better financial state. Which could be good for you. ;)

Congrats!!

This is great to hear, Rain Man. I remember your work well, and especially how much you told me after the one that didn't go the right way a while back, and I'm extremely happy for you. :thumb:

I know everything is going great for your company, so I really feel like I need to take this thread down a notch with a balancing story from my company.

Two months ago, I bought an enclosed trailer for my business. It was a wise investment. I like it very much.

A week ago yesterday, a client backed into the trailer while it was parked in his driveway. Today while I'm pulling up to another client's jobsite, his neighbor backs into the trailer while I'm looking on in horror.

Combine this with the stolen car, shredded knee, drive shaft issues, and all the other crap in my life and death would be welcomed at this moment. I expect my wife to run off with another man at any moment.

A month after being told I was going to pick up enough work to increase my yearly load by about 30%, I come to find out I didn't get the account afterall. Near as I can tell, the reason boiled down to a difference of about $30-$40 per house. It feels like I'm going backwards in my business right now.

What happened to the Knee?

Also, it sounds like you need to invest in some armor plating for your trailer.



Oh, BTW, Congrats Kev!

I could actually profit from the trailer. I'm planning to park it in conspicuous spots frequently in the future. Maybe my customers will eventually pay for it and I'll have a trailer with a few dents and dings.

You asked rope or pills. If you wanted a 3rd option you should have phrased your question differently. Do you run your whole life this way? If so I'm thinking this is more a case of operator error as opposed to bad luck. In that case your streak of bad luck may still be in your future. I'd bet againt you surviving it, unless you clean up your act.

You raise a valid point, Mr. Mickelson.

FWIW, I've reconsidered my previous statement. Somewhere there is an ex-girlfriend of mine walking around with the name of another ex-girlfriend of mine carved in her forearm.

How do you suppose she explains that?
"Hello (squinting), uh Tina I presume?"
"Nah (chomps gum), my name's Krystal."
"Uh - your arm."
"Oh - that's my ex-boyfriend's ex-girlfriend's name."
"WTFBBQ"
