LIKE MY FATHER SAID, FOR EVERY PROBLEM, THERE IS A SOLUTION.
WITH YOUR MAFIA POWER, YOU WILL HAVE A FULL HAND IN DEVELOPING, AND IMPLEMENTING THESE SOLUTIONS, AS WELL AS FULL VETO POWER OVER THEM WHEN “THEY DON’T WORK OUT” AS WE HAD INTENDED (“WE” BEING GOOGLE AND SILILCON VALLEY ON ONE SIDE AND YOU ON THE OTHER.)
1) IN REGARD TO MY PRIOR PRESIDENTIAL SEATING ARRANGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS, I HEREBY RENOUNCE MY INITIAL RECOMMENDATIONS, AS WELL AS OPT OUT OF ANY PERMANENT POSITION IN ANY E-GOV.
2) MY OPINION>
YOU (THE MAFIA) SHOULD GET one HALF of the total seats, and SILICON VALLEY SHOULD GET THE SAME OF WHATEVER TOTAL SEATS THERE ARE AT THE PRESIDENTIAL ROUND TABLE IS MY CURRENT AND STEADFAST RECOMMENDATION BASED ON CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES.
8, 10, 12 total seats = 4, 5, or 6 each seats
ONE THAT IS “Just a suggestion from the Peanut Gallery”–> me
3) RATHER THEN ME BEING THE GOTO GUY, ANOTHER SHOULD BE APPOINTED. THIS IS NOT “WHERE MY BEST SKILL SET APPLIES!”
4) I SHOULD BE “A FREELANCE CONSULTANT” TO WHOMEVER DESIRES MY SERVICES ON–>
A “PROJECT BY PROJECT BASIS”,
OR “MONTH TO MONTH BASIS”
OR “”QUARTER TO QUARTER BASIS”.
>>>THIS SORT OF THING SUITS BOTH MY LOVE OF FREEDOM AND MY TEMPERAMENT!!!<<
ON ANOTHER ADVENTURE of my choosing SOMEWHERE.
In this way, I am not in a Key Position, and for this Tradeoff, I get my Freedom back!
I’d Take Freedom over a Chain gang or 9 to 5 job any day, even if I would make triple the money with “a Regular hours job.”
The last Year as a Seaman, I spent entirely on the Gulf Majesty, an 8,000 HP tug that was hauling coal in a 600 ft barge, either towing it or pushing it depending on the weather, between Baltimore and Norfolk where we loaded, and Salem and Fall River Mass. where we unloaded.
First I was just a deck had, but I had an asshole for a captain (1 of 2) and therefore volunteered to be an oiler in the engine room, and was accepted.
Amazing to some, on a tug this size to control the entirety of all duties in the engine room there were only two of us. Me as Oiler, and A Chief Engineer. “WE” worked a schedule of 6 hours on and six hours off.
Being the least senior, I was assigned the graveyard shift, of course. Midnight to 6 am. I would have voluntarily have picked this shift if I had the choice.
I LOVE working nights!!!!!!
As far as our calendar schedule, we worked six weeks on, three weeks off.
I LOVE!!! this kind of schedule as well, or similar. (I like the 3-2 schedule work vs. play–> which I call “Adventures”.
After I left Darman Mfg. I learned two things about myself.
One was, I would make a far better vice president than president.
Very simply put, I do NOT WANT THE MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBILITY IF I HAVE TO LOSE MY FREEDOM (SUCH AS I HAD WHEN I WORKED ON BOATS) AS A RESULT OF IT.
MONEY MEANS LITTLE TO ME.
We Have an *Interesting Situation* here Regarding Money that I should perhaps Mention To Google in regard to BOTH “My Salary Requirement” AND “My Salary Limitation” Should You Want To Hire Me On A Month to Month TRIAL Basis Until I PROVE MY VALUE TO GOOGLE.
THIS IS IT IN A NUTSHELL.
I WOULD GREATLY PREFER AN INITIAL SALARY BE WITHIN THE LIMITS OF WHAT I CAN MAKE MONTHLY AND NOT ROCK THE BOAT IN REGARD TO MY Social Security Disability Situation.
Social Security places a Strict and Enforced Limit on What I Can Make Monthly Without Any Negative Consequences to Receiving My SSD Check of about $800. a month. (At least that is what it is in NYS, California’s Monthly Limit May Vary.)
I strongly desire/want to Stay Under the Legal Limit by about $20 or so a month. I do not want to “come any closer to the limit.”
I will go to a Social Security Office in CA and find out ASAP what my limit is.
SSD gives me about $1,600 + $780 est. = $2,380 a month. On $$$ such as this, I can “get my own pad in CA” without any Google input or help, I think (other than perhaps a little Deposit help, if need be.
A sum of this Magnitude helps me enormously, and THAT IS ALL I NEED OR WANT FROM GOOGLE period.
I PREFER TO GET THE ENTIRE monthly SUM WITHIN THE FIRST THREE DAYS OF THE MONTH BECAUSE–>
I DO MONTHLY BUDGETS BASED ON CASH OR DEBIT CARD BALANCES ON HAND IN THE BEG. OF THE MONTH.
I’D WORK NO CONTRACT FOR YOU ON A MONTH TO MONTH BASIS AND BE VERY HAPPY AND NOT ONCE COMPLAIN THAT “I WANT ANY MORE”.
I THOUGHT IT APPROPRIATE TO LET YOU KNOW THIS.
FREEDOM, ENJOYMENT, AND MEANINGFULNESS MEANS IT ALL.
I am a Project Kind of Guy, AND I AM CERTAIN THIS “WHERE I BELONG”.
I love my Projects!!! and I work very hard to make them succeed, but I love my Freedom too!!!
Project Manager OR CO-MANAGER should be my Title.
I should work for Google on a Project Basis with a Chunk of time off between Projects.
If I agree to take on a project and it suits me, I would never leave it unfinished even if it took 2 years OR MORE.
I would work at least 350 days a year if health issues don”t come into play.
Think of me as a functional workaholic that gets crazy at times, and put in measures to circumvent damages.
I can do the work of two men, something that has been true since my late teens early twenties, BUT I TAKE A STEP BACKWARD ON A RECURRENT BASIS. I THINK THE APPROPRIATE WORD IS “UNSTABLE”.
I AM ADMITTEDLY UNSTABLE SOMETIMES.
DON’T EVER GIVE ME THE NUCLEAR FOOTBALL WHEN I GET UNSTABLE! MY AIM IS BAD, AND I MIGHT HIT A TURKEY!
I suggest Google put my Great Talents to good use, despite my admitted serious limitations in regard to certain managerial positions and responsibilities.
Don’t try to fix me.
I want to be what I am.
A hint for Google—> given a job that suits my temperament and talents–>
You are going to ABSOLUTELY LOVE “what I can do for you and “IN RECORD SHORT TIME”.
I REQUEST THAT CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE MADE TO HIRE THE FOUR OF US AS A PACKAGE—>
MY ENTIRE TEAM INCLUDING MARK J.
TRY US OUT AS “A MANAGEMENT CORE TEAM OF FOUR” ON IROCK AND “WE WILL REWRITE THE BOOK ON PROJECT MANAGEMENT”.
AND ADD FOUR FROM GOOGLE TO MAKE A TABLE OF EIGHT, OR ADD 8 TO MAKE 12.
DON’T SPLIT THE 4 OF US WordPress TEAM MEMBERS UP, if at all practical or possible.
JUST ADD GRAVY 2 US4 when you need more.
GRAVY BEING HOWEVER MANY GOOGLE FOLKS U WANT.
GOOGLE Employee’s = “GRAVY”
THAT’S THE SMART MOVE, BUT U R THE BOSS.
YOUR HUMBLE EMPLOYEE ALLEN D
P.S. DOES EMP. MEAN I GET PAID?
HOW MUCH MONTHLY, MAY I ASK? 4 BUDGETING AND PLANNING PURPOSES.
What about a little for “relocation”?
How Much? Again, 4 BUDGETING AND PLANNING PURPOSES.
When do I/We Start? 4 BUDGETING AND PLANNING PURPOSES.
What Project are We being Assigned to? I assume iRock.
Do you have an Organizational Chart Prepared yet or any planning paperwork?
Can I get a copy before I leave today to take home with me?
I AM GETTING SLEEPY.
The sign on my door says “OFF DUTY TIL MIDNIGHT”.

EVERY PROBLEM HAS A SOLUTION.
