Seriously though, I doubt you will go. But that brings up another question - why aren't they front loading CQ prior to the summer crunch? My category has 10 must go and only 11 slots. Seems like plenty of guys will enjoy June and July in Atlanta.


Oh well, as a wise man once said - "Mongo only pawn in game of life."


Scoop
My category is NYC 73, so by my count, there is about 269 new hires they are trying to cram thru training for this summer....guess us already qual'd guys will just keep getting pushed to our "Must Go" months.

One that could also turn a profit after we pass our big training years of they sold it. Itís just past the Marriott Courtyard on the left.

i asked this question, the answer i got was it has so much asbestos it would cost too much to fix so they just let it sit vacant.

Hey Buck. You want to apologize yet? I PM’d you if you are confused. Or go to the “New video from MEC thread” if you are confused.

You can’t throw a grenade and walk away without consequences bro.

No Tailhooka....can't say that I do.

I asked a pretty simple question about how much time you had on the property. Others felt compelled to ask me what difference it made. I answered their question of why it was important to me(civilly I thought)....if it's not important to others...so be it. You then answered the question of your length of service and then proceeded to leave the reservation. When people talk about burning down the house prior to openers, it peaks my curiosity. I do however see a common thread.

Carry on

Buck you were a jerk and hypothetically questioned my date of hire. So I will ask you again... when were you hired? Since you were such a jerk to me regarding length of service.

In many cases, the safest course of action is to leave undisturbed asbestos in place. If it required abatement, costs are in the range of $20/sf. Delta isn't in the real estate business and doesn't want the headache of remodeling an office into a hotel. If anybody knows who to contact about buying the building from Delta send me a PM. I have an idea...
