Hey y'all. Happy New Year and all that Jazz.
It's the first Pirate post of the new year and ya know what? It's short.
Holidays went well. Christmas went off without a hitch, just the fam and the mother-in-law, luckily she likes me. Took her about 12 years to realize that I was indeed a decent guy and for her to stop calling me by the wifes first husbands name but hey, guess it was worth the wait.
For New Years had my cuz and his family stop in on their way back from the northlands. They spent a few days and a relatively low key New Years Eve with us. Sweet Pea and Baby Girl went out to their own parties, the old folks stayed home. Since the Mrs. had to work New Years Day we started early. Beers were flowing around noon, Lemon Drops were served starting at about 2pm and by 6 we were all pretty much in the bag. Needless to say all but the Pirate were in bed before 11 pm. We simply fucking rock. Doesn't seem like all that long ago we'd drink and partake of pleasures all night long to watch the sunrise, what the fuck happened here?
Now, the BIG announcement. Should post this on Business Wednesdays but I can't wait.
The company just got it's biggest contract to date. $224,250.00. FUCK YEAH! Since we only had about $160k in work on the books we basically doubled in size overnight. Guess the good things are worth waiting for eh? I am one happy fucking camper. This is gonna look real good on our resume.
And the best part? Not that I like to cause a stir. Okay, I do like to cause a stir - piss off. There are about 4 competitors in town going who the fuck are these guys? The contractor called me yesterday to tell me that people are having a fit cuz 1) they didn't get the work and 2) they don't have a clue as to who the hell we are. So, not only did we get a simply fucking beautiful contract - we got the competition tripping all over themselves. Life is good. See what you get for answering your phone and taking care of your customers?
Take a note competition - y'all been around long enough. You don't take care of your customers and most of you simply get work cuz there's no other choice for the customers to make. Now there is, and it's me. I don't want to be the biggest, I just wanna be the best. I won't take all your customers, just enough from each of you to get me my $2.5 mil a year. And from what I hear, it ain't gonna be too damn hard.
As far as the Pirates health goes, he's about back to normal. Then again I've heard that "normal" is just a cycle on the washing machine. Have a few follow up appts to make and I'll get them done. The biggest resolution for the new year is to delegate, something that may be even tougher for me that not smoking or eating right, but I gotta do it. Just need to move past those trust issues...
Well, so much for a short post. Softball Slut
