  1. This is a simple testament to the fact that these people do not know what they are doing. All the hoopla about closing down and sending their workers into a panic, now this talk about looking forward to a good summer. They don’t know their a** from their elbow.

  2. Improve all the time schedule and customer service you want, it’s the financial accounts that need the overhauling to see where all the leaks are.

  3. You are an attractive lady. I would have loved to see you 20 years ago!!! Must have been a real peach of a lady!
