If I Could Save Time in a Bottle

We fired RD.

If I never run across another republican who thinks he knows how to run a business (or a country) again, it will be too soon.

The truth is that if I hadn't gone to work and looked at the books, RD would have run the company out of business within the year.

When I mentioned this to him at his "exit interview" he said, almost blithely, that "companies are going out of business left and right, right now".

Not ours, buddy.

So I've been trying to figure out everything that he did, both right and wrong, and get us turned around. It's taken all of my time.

I've started a few blog posts about the whole situation, but then I toss them because they've been a bit too whiny.

So that's where I've been. All is well and is getting weller. At least I hope so.

Holy crap woman.

I've missed you and am glad to see you, albeit less frequently right now.

Be well and weller!

Joe said...

Good luck--I'm glad you caught it in time!

We'll be here when you get back.

Claire said...

Good for you; that's just one more incompetent Republican out of a job this week.

Sorghum Crow said...

Welcome back. We missed you.

Mauigirl said...

Glad to see you again - and glad you figured out what was going on and took care of it!

Yay! Jess Wundren is back! :o)

Matthew Hubbard said...

Best of luck at work. With that best of luck, the company will survive and you'll have blog time again.

That would be sweet!

Way to kick ass & take names!

Better now than after the fact, when all you can do is sit and wonder "should I have...?"

Jess Wundrun said...

to all **blushes** thanks, guys.

This has really felt a lot like a divorce, and I know that's not hyperbole because I have been through one.

There's more turds floatin' in the water as it were, and when I can give more details, I will.

Wow, Jess! I've missed you, but you've got your priorities straight. Good for you!

Randal Graves said...

Good thing you didn't kill him 'cause then you'd have to blog from jail.

Yikes. Good luck with the cleanup. A microcosm, eh?
