  1. “4) The Imperial War Museum, London, England”

    Preach! What a joy that was to visit this museum. I went there after flying all night to London so I couldnt last all day, but the place was crack to a military history nut.

  2. You mean repo-man?

    Nothing that sane.

    I worked for a company which contracted to provide certain services to a multinational corporation.

    When the contract expired, several other companies bid the contract, and one company owned and run by foreign nationals won the bid.

    Unfortunately, my co-workers and I had unionized.

    This new company had managed to underbid our old employers by assuming that my co-workers and I would take fairly significant cuts in pay and benefits.


    I was the part-time business manager for the union. When both the president of the union and the vice-president suffered accidents on the job site, it was up to me to renegotiate the union contract with the new company.

    Contract renegotiator.
