|17 weeks 6 days ago||My two cents||
From the perspective of a person who is in a perpetual hiring mode - almost every bullet on an offer letter is negotiable. Rarely do we make a comp offer that cannot be raised without issue. Start date is also negotiable, but keep in mind that the post is likely for immediate work, so delaying hurts your overall profile. For us, a 4 day work week is a non-starter for new hires. Once they have proven themselves capable of handling it on a trial basis, it becomes an option.
Overall, the more you try to negotiate, the more other candidates appear as viable options, so just be sure you are the right/best person. We have turned people down and gone with a second choice at times due to negotiation difficulties. Hope this helps!

You eliminate the risk and can always unload the entire season...probably for more than face value.

Quit drinking your sh*tty beer and go to bed.

Bells is first class. Two hearted, Hopslam, and 3rd coast...yum.

I would rather not have internet service than do business with the worst company in history, Comcast.

My first son also had the cord wrapped around his neck. Thankfully our doctor knew what he was doing, didn't panic and delivered him safely. I honestly didn't realize how serious things were because he was so calm. Happy and healthy 10 year old now!

Just thinking about it makes me feel like I need a shower...
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Just when you thought...||
Just when you thought the season couldn't possibly take a turn for the worse. Next man up!
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I disagree||
Darko was certainly overrated by many, but just as many, if not more, thought Melo would be better before the draft.
For every article you can find, there are just as many indicating Melo would be better. This was Simmons shortly after the pick, although he knew at the draft it was a missed opportunity.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Not revisionist||
People definitely thought Detroit would take Darko, as it was widely broadcasted. Many, if not most, thought Carmelo should be taken ahead of him.
Not to mention, no one thought anyone was on par with LBJ. He was the most hyped prospect ever and the clear choice at #1. No one else was tier 1.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I agree 100%||
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Not as i remember it||
Tier 1 - LBJ
Tier 2 - Carmelo
Teir 3 - Everyone else
Darko is the worst NBA draft pick in history. Sure, Carmelo is not a good defensive player, but the Pistons needed a scorer and had tons of defensive talent. I firmly believe that they would have won multiple championships if they would have picked Melo. It was such an obvious choice to everyone except Joe D. No way to put it except that it was a complete disaster.

IBD. Oh, and HARBAUGH.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Soldier Field||
In general, Soldier Field is an o.k. experience. I have gone to a few Bears-Lions games sporting Lions gear and have gotten plenty of verbal abuse. That said, the fans are very disinterested at this point and it should be fine. Hopefully you make it and cheer on a playoff birth! Go Lions!

Which means the 2 tickets will be just enough.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Duffy's||
I second Duffy's, but you need to get there as early as you can. If not, then Diag or Rockit are solid alternatives. Warning - if you don't pick a Michigan-centric bar, there is a good chance the sound will not be on. I'm going to the game, otheriwse I would join you!

Enjoy the last weekend of the summer...Go Blue!

Can't have a posbang without the Prince! Have a great weekend!
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Very nice||
Hopefully this isn't a double post - not sure what happened to my first one.
I am considering a personal portable potty this year. Any recommendations? This one looks good, but it is a bit more than i wanted to spend...
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Bang||
Bang away. Painiting the family room this weekend, so I need all the help I can get...
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Thanks||
Will check it out.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Weekend||
Going to doctor today b/c I apparently rolled around in some poison ivy over the 4th. Everyone else have fun!
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Hats?||
The hats need to be lit on fire. Even if the designs were reasonable, they would fall apart after one season. The one I am wearing right now is proof - had to buy a new one by XMas. Anyone but Adidas...
|2 years 13 weeks ago||+1 ^^^^^^^||
Now that's funny
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Yeah||
At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Best celebration||
I have to agree - this is the best celebration I have ever seen.

Have a great day, everyone. Appreciate your father today...they deserve every bit of it!
