    My favorite is the one about the little 5'2", 120 lb guy who completely destroyed the cafeteria. Thousands of dollars worth of damage. When they finally got him calmed down and asked him why he did it, he told them that they were serving carrots and he didn't like carrots.

    Wow that's incredible. But, at least he had a reason.

    I'm general counsel for a non-profit arts organization with a music discovery radio station. Our mission is to enrich people's lives by championing music and discovery. This is sort of my "retirement" job, even though it's full time, as I was a corporate finance lawyer in private practice for 32 years in my prior life...

    We all have to have a passion for something. Hatred of carrots is as good as anything.

    I figured out that part of it. Just wondered how you track them down when they get outside of the system.

    For the last decade or so, I have mostly done environmental remediation, and management on mainline pipeline rights-of-way, in the upper Midwest. Basically, I am a clean-up guy.

    Did you forget to mention your weekend job? Or maybe that was intentional. :rofl:

    30 years in the U.S. Army retired and took a position as Executive Director of a port facility running a shipyard, an airport, several marinas, industrial parks et al. Retired again last year. Biggest decison I have to make now is what shave soap do I use next.

    Some days.... choosing which soap to use is a challenge!

    Thanks for your years of service, Col C.

    There is. All our customers get assigned an id number. So we create id numbers for their customers too. Our customers must transmit where they send the pallets. this is done via a web portal. From there the system tracks the movement. It gets broken down to if the costumer they sent it to is on our program or not. If not, then it gets reported to the region asset recovery department and down to the rep covering that particular part of the territory . If the customer is on our program also, we simply add those pallets to that customers inventory and the process starts all over again. When a pallet is reported delivered our customer stops getting charged the rental fee.

    You are quite right. The hard part is there is no breaks or leaving work stuff at work. Lol It can make ya a little kooky at times but its the hand that life gave me. I work with it.
