To answer your questions about my RC status
« on: January 19, 2007, 07:09:17 PM »
Well Iíve had a couple of emails wondering why my name is no longer on the Peterson RC list.  Well The short story is that I got promoted at work and had to drop the commercial side of my sawmill business and also working for Petersons. 

The only reason I had to leave Petersons is because the new job requires me to be available within 2 hours of a call.  This means that I canít take mill deliveries and train new mill owners.  I sure could not tell a new mill owner ďsorry you traveled 9 hours to get training but I have to go to workĒ.  That is just not right.

I still will help answer any questions anyone may have and the couple of owners here on the forum that I helped sell mills to and trained I just want you to know that you can call here any time with questions or problems.  Iím just not official anymore. ::) ::) ::) ::)

And here I thought that you were going to say that the Misses finally hooked you up to a remote control so she could make you do the honey do list quicker. ::) :D :D :D

Great news on your promotion. 8)  And sad news for Peterson also. :(

sometimes those types of promotions are more deserving of sympathy than congratulations!

I hope you're in the congrats camp!

I'm glad some people still concern themselves with customer service.  It seems that the sawmill business has a lot of that going on :)

Dan

Your a little closer to the truth than you know.  I'm at work right now waiting to work on our piece of junk electric boiler. This will give me a 26 hour day when I get done.  Not much time for milling or anything else for that matter.  I believe that the term railroaded is closer than promotion. ???

Not all bad though I do get to pick my jobs for the day and deligate the others out ;)

As far as the customer service goes Petersons was and is all about the customer.  As are all of our sponsors.

Tom,

Did it start out with, "How would you like to..."?   :D

Regardless, it is good to be recognized from time to time. 

Anyways, it seems I remember something of that before I self-promoted to owner (perpetual flak catcher)  once upon a time long ago, in a land far, far away.   :D

I'm certain the responsibility was placed in capable hands.   ;)

swinging sawdust- I'm still just a shout away.  Katie was wondering if Otto was ready for another beef sandwitch ??? :)  BY the way how are you coming on those big oaks or is there to much water down there also. 


tcsmpsi  I think it started with "Lets go to lunch, we want to talk to you about something" :D :D :D  I shoulda know better, as we were walking in to the restaurant Jeremy was whispering "dead man walking,dead man walking".   :D :D :D  It's so nice to have friends.
