Hey Charley, @Sunbreakers     I didn't want to hijack other dude's thread. :lol

@Bham It was good to get to stop for a visit today. Told you I would try to make it more frequent :D.  I wish I had read your post above before I stopped by. I would have told you in person what I will type to you now.

In life I have learned that for every one or two good decisions you make there is bound to be a bad one. Not hiring you back in the 90's was a terrible decision on my part and an oversight that I should not have allowed to happen. I wasn't willing to give you a chance, didn't think you had the drive for it, and I let other folks influence my decisions when I should have at least given you an opportunity. You have proved me wrong many times...you have certainly been driven and you have achieved my achievements...your own shop. That one mistake of mine not only was very obviously my loss, but it also alienated us from each other and put a strain on our friendship maybe even still today. In front of all of these good, professional folks here on this forum, Jason,  I want you to know I am very sorry. I hope others here can learn from my mistake and always be willing to take a chance on others. I am very proud of you for what you have achieved.

The past is what it is.  Can't change that, only learn from it.  And can't let it beat you up because of the choices made or what happened due to those choices.  

Who knows?  If we had actually worked together, we might hate each other at this point. OR, we could still have a shop going somewhere and be just fine.  No way to know how that all would have turned out. :dunno    We were still able to hang out and be friends even though I was working for Rusty at the time.  There is nothing to apologize for.  Like I said, neither of us knows how it would have gone 20 years ago.  Life itself affects people and life might have gotten in the way of business, for either or both of us,  and it might not have gone the proper direction.  But we are still friends and that is the main thing. :thumb  :beer   

 

I am trying to make it work here at my little bay.  I haven't had an actual "Boss" in over 8 years now and as most anybody knows, it's slow going to get to,,, quote " That Point", where you can be comfortable with what you have built. :wall    I know I don't have the flashiest shop or a bunch of accessories and lights and radios etc, etc.  I'm also not the fastest tinter on the planet by any means, but I try.  I try to do it right, and have happy customers.  That's really all I want.  A steady schedule of happy customers.  Don't need all the headaches that come with the accessories side of things.  I can do and have done all of that and don't really enjoy that part of it, so for now, I will just keep on trying to get my little bay on the map. :D 

 

 

 

still don't have a shop pig though. :poke

@Bham I appreciate your gracious response. You are absolutely right that we never know how it would have turned out or even ended. Regardless of what could have been It was very obviously the "elephant" in the room and I simply wanted to address it here and now...Life is too short and you never know when you might not get another chance.

Haha.  Wasn’t trying to make you feel uncomfortable, sorry if I did.  I was just trying to being funny and thought you might chuckle at the way I put it. Maybe I didn’t say it well.   Not trying to push any unnecessary buttons. Please understand I am not upset or have any hard feelings about anything.  Yes, I was messing with you but I was just putting a spin on my story knowing you would understand part of it.   

 

Cheers :beer

No, not at all. You didn't make me feel uncomfortable in the least. It was great to understand and remember that cool part of our past. I appreciate you have such a great memory of it all. I simply felt it important to apologize to you. Glad we are friends and can share the blessings we have today.
