    I beleive him Mafia Mama. Chris4x4 and I have chatted about this. It was a big adjustment for him. I went thru the same thing at a different job.You find a way to make it work. And as you can see. He has.

    He can do things like this because they stuck him in a back cubicle near the restrooms where no one can see him. I beleive most of his fellow office workers wish he was back in the field. :annoyed:.
