About...To...Lose..Mind...Someone....Plz...

....come to my office and kick me in the dick or some shit just so I can forget the worry pain and focus on the nut pain

(2) of my deals for this quarter have been verballed to me today and it is now just a waiting game by the fax machine or email in box - Both total about $750K in Revenue to the company with well over $100K in profit (which is how I am measured to keep my job) - Finance signed off on the big one last night and will be faxing today and the other not so big one needs CFO signature because it is over budget but they can pull from different pools to cover - GAWD I HATE THIS PART !!!!

My Management - "Did you get the PO?"
My Company's Owners - "Did you get the PO?"
The Software Vendor - "Did you get the PO?"

I am about to drop trow, smack it at my desk in my office and shoot the family name on the rug just so I can relax

Normally I would jump at the chance to kick a guy in the nuts but you haven't done anything to me so I just can't do it... sorry. I'm surprised tho cause I'm in a wicked man hating mood today.

We're still running Vantage 6.1 while everyone else in the world has what, the 8.0? with Crystal 10

6.1 is older than SHIMS

I make sure that the shit you buy from Epicor is safe, accessible at all times and only by the proper recipients as well as delivered in the most efficient way - its a whole whiteboard thing!
