    OK...so maybe it's just one of those days, but I'm really close to just packing up and walking out of here. Granted, I know that would not be good for me and my family, but what I wouldn't give to get on the air, say what I really think about "things", pack my stuff up and give everyone the one finger salute as I walk out the front door.

    Anyone ever have the grapfruits to do this?

    Man, aren't you the program director - who's making life tough for you? Owners? I guess if you decide to go, get a copy of the Johnny Paycheck song - that'd sound real good coming from a rock 'n roll station! On a different note - have you gotten your copies of the remasters yet - do you think you'll get them before the general public? You'll have to let us know about them if you do! Anyway, hang in there - could be worse - could be riding a garbage truck in Godforsakenville, Maine.

    You could just say it's "political"!

    As far as the re-mastered stuff goes, my WB rep acted like he had no idea what I was talking about. That really sucked...getting put in the back seat just because you don't work in a top 25 radio market.

    Hey...we're ALL Van Halen fans...even us folk that live in the "sticks".

    I just ordered a set of them from CDNow. $77 on the old Mastercard. Hope I can hide that one from my wife.

    Hey Cabo, you won't be able to hide nothing if your wife is like mine! Three months and she doesn't look at the Master Card bill, and as soon as I buy something, she's asking what CD's did I buy, LOL

    Everyday I try to figure out a reason to go to work, it sucks. Hopefully in a few months when I find a new job, I'll figure out real quick how to quit.

    I quit a job once years ago. I was starting a new one the next day.
    The guy said "You can't just quit. Aren't you gonna give me a notice?"
    I said, "Yeah, you can NOTICE I'm not here tomorrow!"
    He was not amused.

    LOL Blueeyed! Gotta remember that.

    I would love not work, there's just a few problems...Rent, soon-to-be husband, car, insurance, food, music, my guitars, and that nice shiny BMW M3 I wanna get next year.

    LOL Blueeyed!

    Thanks for the advice, Uncle Ted!

    Y'know, things just got a lot better considering I'm now at home and I got to go pick up my little girl from school today. All smiles makes a daddy's heart melt!!

    It makes me remember the scene from the Simpsons where Homer comes crawoling back t Mr. burns and he's pretty much guaranteed a sucky job. Burns even put the sign up that said

    "Don't forget you're here forever!"

    Homer made the most of it and put pictures of Maggie over the poster so it said...

    "Do it for her"

    I'll try and remember this tomorrow when I'm ready to kill (figuratively speaking) a few morons in the radio biz!

    I'd still like to quit in big fashion, though!

    A looong time ago in college I worked at Taco Hell and was written up for being late for work. (I had a flat and for some reason they didn't buy the story.) Anyway, the next day I walked in with the blown tire, (you Firestone people know what I'm yappin' about), slammed it on the counter and said," I QUIT AND I'LL HAVE A FUCKING BURRITO SUPREME WITH NO SOUR CREAM PLEASE!!"

    I think I'll set fire to myself and jump out of the window in the style of 'The Fall Guy'. Better make sure somebody is around with a video camera though...
