If you're near Atlanta, let me know. Maybe we can hook up for dinner somewhere.

I'm flying into Atlanta on Tuesday night. I don't leave Orlando until 6:00pm, then I have to Uber to a hotel 30 miles away in Duluth. Busy day on Wednesday, then I have a 5:40pm flight to Charlotte.

Tuesday the 27th. Scheduled to land in ATL around 7:40PM which doesn't get me out of the airport until 8ish probably. I was originally planning on trying to grab a bite before my flight in Orlando. Lets touch base again next week,

Not the big leagues and I'm not important - just cheap labor. Being salary I get to work 12-18 hour days and they only pay me for 8


Enough thread hijack - back to Woodstock

But soooo many people dream of getting out of their paid-by-the-hour jobs for a nice cushy salaried position...failing to realize how many more hours they will need to work and when. Enjoy!

Yeah...in my case I was a manufacturing manager for a local family owned business, working 45-50 hours per week. I've been here since 1993. Like every other company in corporate America we were acquired by a larger nationwide company in 2015


Since I was managing the local company so well, they put me in charge of managing and building new manufacturing companies in the US, and I also occasionally have to visit customers with our account managers (that's what the week of the 26th is).


Unfortunately, remember that original 45-50 hour per week job for the local family owned business....I still have to do that as well. That's why I'm up at 4:00 every morning working before the rest of the country wakes up I usually work until around 8pm when our Seattle branch closes.
