re: Why Are People In Such a Hurry to Board a Flight? - MonreauxTiger
"Yeah, but sometimes I can't afford 40 fricking minutes. I had an interview once, tons of counts put their purses in overhead, and it took literally an hour and a half for me to get my carry-on from baggage claim, barely making it to the interview in time. It's not the money, it's the time a-hole." ...

re: Completed Week 1 of My New Job - MonreauxTiger
Most people live their own dream and everyone has a different barometer of happiness. I wouldn't take your job for $5mill a year, but the scenery is stunning and I'm sure it is a fantastic opportunity. No point in trying to convince each other who is living the better dream as it is completely...

re: THE most culturally diverse City in the US - MonreauxTiger
Just moved from Houston to Minneapolis and there are 40+ nationalities represented at my workplace. Houston is diverse, but heavy in the top three/four. Completely surprised me when I got to Minneapolis, but the level of diversity here is incredible. Interestingly enough, or not at all, I live ...

re: If you had $100k to purchase a car, new or used, what would it be? - MonreauxTiger
Hard to say. New R8 will be $160,000-$200,000 so I suspect you could get a 2-3 year old R8 with low miles for $90,000-$100,000. I love the classic cars, but I've just never wanted one for some reason. I like all the features on newer cars and the handling/acceleration of the 911. Never been in...

re: If you had $100k to purchase a car, new or used, what would it be? - MonreauxTiger
Porsche 911 Carrera 4S. Last year I bought a black 911 Carrera S and now I know why anyone would want to waste that kind of money on a car. Of course, I like driving fast and pissing my wife off and that car allows me to do both simultaneously. Would prefer the 4S but would still get black o...

re: Return of Honey Badger??????? - MonreauxTiger
Not even close. Every team is different and every player has flashes, but players like TM7 are once in a number of years type of players. In my days of watching LSU football, Kevin Faulk, Cecil Collins (for a few games), Josh Reed, PP7, TM7 were just unbelievably special game after game and yo...

re: Your Weirdest Interview Experiences - MonreauxTiger
Interviewed with Chevron years ago and they asked one question only. How many ping pong balls could you fit in a 747? Obviously they just wanted to get your reaction, see how you work through a problem on the fly in a pressure situation, but I thought it was a poor tactic. I have interviewe...

I have a 73" sharp flat, ps3, x-box, 6 theater seats, in ceiling surround sound, theater lighting, pictures and other theater decor, heavy insulation, double door entry. Maybe $7,000 in it? Kids love it, I love it but honestly don't use it as much as I thought I would because I have a 65" in my ...

re: Why do layoffs always happen on a Thursday (MSFT laying off 10K people today) - MonreauxTiger
[quote]Why would it be? The company already sold its stock to the public.[/quote] As soon as the layoff goes public if it is substantial it will impact stock price significantly. It could be strategic to allow no trading over the weekend so the full details of the company strategy can be absorbe...

re: Why do layoffs always happen on a Thursday (MSFT laying off 10K people today) - MonreauxTiger
It gives people the weekend to get over the shock and initial emotional reaction. In cases of individual layoffs or packaged out scenarios, they can spend the weekend calming down and putting a game plan together for the next work week as opposed to going out the next few business days job hunting ...
