In January of this year I got real stupid and moved to Oklahoma for a woman. Things were going great. Got a great job, lots of smootchie smootchie, except I lust uncontrollably for my ex, Sierra. So I just quit my job last week. I must head back to CA to reunite with my EX. And to make up for my transgressions I will spend the entire summer alone with my true love, Sierra.

That bitch Sierra? What a slut. She'll give it up for anyone with two boots that's willing to hike her flanks.

She's got lots of boyfriends dude, trust me on that.

Hope you don't mind sharing yer woman....sheesh....

He who laughs last laughs best. Right, Weege?
Yeah, I turned down a prime position in a similar janitor's closet in an
almost windowless building in Langley, Virginia. It was also waaay too
far from any sort of climbing I liked. Hell, I turned down an even better
job in Berkeley because it was too far from real mountains like Seattle.

But Seattle's a city.

And it's Sierra Nevada, clowns.

Ha ha.

El Cap,

It sounds like you made two good decisions: (1) concerning the promotion; and (2) concerning the thread deletion. Your thread asked for specific advice personal to you, rather than a general discussion. As such, I would classify your decision to delete the thread as a one to conserve space, not running off and pouting.

Congratulations again on the promotion.

Its completely unimportant if some (few) Taco users get their granny panties in a bunch when someone deletes a thread. They can f*#k off!

And also only the person involved really knows what's at risk, what's to gain, and how those things relate to their life.

Like some here, I too balked as I rose up the corporate ladder. I saw it for the trap it was - in my particular situation. Others desire, need, avoid and reject different things and that is good, because the world needs all types.

I had ElCap take swipes at my abilities, when he can only guess as what makes me tick, and what ticks me off. I knew better to state my unqualified opinion, when it was he who asked for input.

Besides, it is really doubtful that he actually needed input from the Supertopo crowd to take the step toward that job or not. Likely he knew very well inside what his decision was. If not - then maybe leading others WOULD be a questionable pursuit....

One thing that I know, is that I KNOW what I want/don't want, who I am/am not, what I am capable of and what I'm not capable of. Those are qualities of a leader, at least one who who can be safely followed!

Being in management also causes one to sometimes be a hemorrhoid !
