I was at work until 9:30 this evening building demos for the trade show next week. This is the latest I’ve biked home since the summer, and it wasn’t too bad: very light traffic, wet roads, 34°F and clear sky illuminated by a sliver-short-of-full moon.
Near home, it got interesting. The temperature had dipped below freezing. At the top of the hill, I could see the moonlight reflecting off the ice crystals forming on the sidewalk. I didn’t think it would be that bad, but there was some fishtailing whenever I’d run over branch remnants. At home, my lawn, car and almost everything else were splattered by little white hail pellets. It’s weird how much the weather changes in a mere few hundred feet above sea-level.
Anyone know how I can get a gold-lined parachute like Robert Nardelli, ex-CEO of Home Depot. Check out this contract. I don’t think I could decimate their customer service as thoroughly if I tried, especially the dysfunctional self-checkout system, but I would be willing to work for half the cost.
Director Mitch is right: Carly Fiorina’s severance seemed excessive, but Nardelli’s is obscene. The compensation board has some ‘splainin’ to do to the shareholders. (But it won’t happen. Ever.)
