View Full Version : Adios, mi amigos

I've decided to merge my company with another company out of Pennsylvania. I've been in discussions with this company about doing this for the past 4 months. We have decided to move my office to the Pittsburgh, PA area.

Go Steelers! :Lin:

Anyways, it's a great economic deal for my family, and a nice way for me to retire in the next 10 years (which would make me 51 :deevee: )

Regardless, I'm starting over. It's scary, but it should be a helluvalot of fun. My office will be comprised of about 20 people, which I'll manage. One of their policies is a "No Message Board Policy". It was almost a deal breaker for me....;)

Between no posting at work, and lots of expected travel (gone 4 days out of the week - a lot of local travel ), I doubt I'll be back here except to peek in. That said, thanks for a great 5.5 years on the Planet. Lot's of good cyber friends and lots of great laughs. This has been my homepage for what seems like forever. I've shared death's in the family, to the birth of my son on this place. From American Hero to Mike Keck, and from Redman (one of my favorite posters) on the old KC Star bb to Iowainian (another of my favorite posters) on the ChiefsPlanet, this place has been a very memorable journey.

Take Care!

Best wishes. You'll find time to drop in occaisionally, I hope.

01-23-2006, 05:23 PM
Congratulations and best of luck.

If you don't mind me asking did you approach this company or they you?

I own a small direct mail advertising company and have been weighing the idea of trying to find either a buyer or a larger company to merge with.

Farethewell. Mr. ChiTown. May your venture be a grand success.


01-23-2006, 05:26 PM
Congrats dude! :thumb:

Remember, you can always drop by on off-hours.

01-23-2006, 05:28 PM
Best of luck, Chi. Hope your dream of retiring at 51 comes true for you.

Do your best to pop in whenever you can. The Planet is a better place with your smart-assedness. :)

At least I had the balls to tell everybody it was Nick Athan. Jeesh.


Seeya around, man. You're one of the good ones. First round is always on me whenever you're in town.

01-23-2006, 07:08 PM
Take care Chi we will miss you around here. Like Phil said you were one of the good ones. Drop in every now and then would ya?

01-23-2006, 07:18 PM
Damn Chi, hate to see you go.

Hope you do get a chance to drop by from time to time.

01-23-2006, 07:20 PM
Hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave....oops, wrong thread.

Best wishes in your new endeavor. You're good people, and the planet will have a void. Get yourself settled and back to slacker status and don't be a stranger. We'll miss your off season office window beaver hunt in the convertible.

If you get too much money, I'd be happy to keep some of it in one of my accounts.

Whaaaaaay can't aaah quit you?

01-23-2006, 07:21 PM
Best of luck to you and your family!! Hope all works out they way you wish!!

01-23-2006, 07:23 PM
I figured it out.

You've been bought out by the a North Eastern Penn football cult, to be a minion to skewer phildo?

Stop looking into the light!

01-23-2006, 07:28 PM
Tell Mr. Blond we said "hi."

01-23-2006, 07:31 PM
You've merged your company with another in Pittsburgh and you're only going to be a manager. I thought you owned your company?
And the new muckity mucks won't let you post on this message board.
What kind of f*cking deal did you make with the devil?
You're supposed to have SOME perks. Being the boss and screwing off is supposed to be one of them.
Your job must really suck. :shake: :)

01-23-2006, 07:33 PM
Good Luch Chi, hope it all works out for you and the family.

Let us know when you come back for games at "The Bill."

I have a hunch our new FB coach may get us to the CCG in a hurry. You'll have to come back for that.

Take care my friend. I wish you well.

01-23-2006, 08:23 PM
Damn, Iowanian beat me to the NEPA punch. Happy trails, Chi, and congratulations!

01-23-2006, 08:23 PM
Congrats and Good luck!

01-23-2006, 09:19 PM
Congrats and Good luck.

Good luck - always liked your input during baseball season. Drop back in sometimes.

I bet he's headed to prison.

Watch yourself in there, chitown. Join a gang, so you can protect yoursef.

01-23-2006, 09:36 PM
Only a few hundred posts short of the magical 12,000 too. What a shame. :shake:

Good luck!

01-24-2006, 08:33 AM
Years of service and all he gets is 35 replies? This is an outrage.


01-24-2006, 08:39 AM
Gaz is not one of his favorite posters?

Screw ChiTown and the horse he rode in on.

Wishes good things for ChiTown, even though he was shamefully overlooked.

01-24-2006, 08:43 AM

01-24-2006, 08:47 AM
See ya Patrick. Take care!

01-24-2006, 08:52 AM
And another one bites the dust...so to speak.

Gonna miss you ChiTown...as someone else said, there will be a void that wont be easily filled. It's always a bit sad to see one of the original gang that started this place, move on. I realize that we all will at some point.

01-24-2006, 08:52 AM
Congrats and good luck, Chi!

01-24-2006, 08:55 AM
Congratulations on the hopefully early retirement.

chiefs4mer should take up the slack of your departure from here.

01-24-2006, 08:59 AM
Best of luck Chitown!

Damn, another one bites the dust.

01-24-2006, 09:02 AM
I bet he's headed to prison.

Watch yourself in there, chitown. Join a gang, so you can protect yoursef.

Kick someone's ass the first day, and then hang your front pocket out, and make them follow you around hanging onto it.

Unfortunate prison showers are the True reason Donger doesn't wash his legs anymore.
(thats as close as I can get to the Million Dollar Baby Mo Coushle meaning right as you leave).

I always hate to see one of the Chiefsplanet icons leave. Good luck, you will be missed.

01-24-2006, 09:35 AM
This is obviously a thinly veiled attempt at locating your lost cat...good luck!

01-24-2006, 09:45 AM
I hate these feel-good, "I hate to leave but I because of a great opportunity that will better my life, I can no longer post on the Planet" threads.

The ones where some douchebag thinks he was wronged and posts a "Goodbye Planet, I'm leaving forever" thread, even though he is just really looking for attention and hopes someone begs him to stay so he doesn't have to register a new username next week are much more entertaining.

j/k, of course. Good luck, Chi, and hope you drop in from time to time.
