I'm never going back to a traditional office environment. I figured that out last week at the corporate Christmas party I got roped into attending. Who are these people? And how did I manage to fit into that world for so long? My, how things have changed since I checked out. Apparently it's now the "in" thing to walk up to strangers at these Christmas parties and say, "Hi! My name is Corporate Lackey and I'm in Finance!" What is one supposed to say to that? "I'm still in "Finance" but I don't have to suck up anymore!" *smile* seemed to be a little rude. But, thanks for the great line, current day corporate finance professionals. I think I'll start using it when I do have to put on a suit and go places... "Hi! I'm in Finance -- yours! And something just doesn't smell right with those annual reports you've been submitting to the government." *smile*
Anyhow, today's fun fest was hosted by transmission owner sycophant Transmission Hub (sponsored by Quanta! *insert infomercial here*). Transmission Hub cracks me up... they continually tell these energy execs what they want to hear, not what they need to hear. And I'm sure they're paid handsomely to hold up that mirror in front of energy exec faces and simply repeat the idiot's words back to him or her. It's bogus validation of the highest order!
During the webcast, one of the sycophants told the audience that PATH was cancelled because of coal plant retirements. What? That had noting to do with it! PATH simply wasn't needed in the first place, and tanking demand due to increased energy efficiency, increased demand management, and low gas prices killed it for good.
Patience submitted a "question" calling them out on their misinformation. Much to our amusement, the moderator actually took up the question during the Q & A and admitted that PATH really wasn't cancelled because of coal plant retirements, and then he blamed Herling for the misinformation. Good thing the "mute" button was on because we couldn't stop laughing!
Y'all just keep on telling yourselves all those self-serving lies, now. Meanwhile, we'll be living in our real world "out-of-office" office and concocting your ultimate demise. *smile*
