If I were to start out all over again I might have done things differently.
Having done a lot of "outside the box" in my career I'm ready for a schedule and time off. The grass is always greener, etc.

While you have a decent point it was kinda overshadowed by your trip back to middle school. Just sayin'.

Your mom said hi by the way!
Yes, it's possible, but probable? Lots of 135 and 91 guys out there who have given up on that scene to go do 121 to either improve their resume or just have a life.

And while it "could" be more lucrative, it could also be the 7th circle of hell. Think there's bad regionals out there? There are far more bad charter outfits. Grass is always greener, etc.

Oh, and way to stoop to his level. Good save.
