    Default Quick Thinker

    Fred was a hardworking salesman in New York City, and was summoned to his company's corporate office for a meeting with the national sales manager. When he arrived, he was told that he was doing a great job, and that the company was going to offer him a promotion to regional manager. They would even pay all his moving expenses to his new region. He asked where they wanted him to move to, and he was told the position was in Denver. Fred said, "Denver ! There's nothing but pot heads, hookers, and football players in Denver !". The national sales manager was quite taken aback by the reply, and told Fred that his mother lives in Denver. Fred said " Really ? What position does she play ? "

    That was good! I'm guessing he didn't get the promotion.

    Having turned down one 'promotion' I can understand the situation. Take it and you're in a total 'dead end' with the Company....

    I am living it right now, took the promotion last year, putting feelers out with the network right now.

    Then, again, turn it down and they may never offer another.
