    Cool Your Coolest Account!!

    Was wondering what's the coolest account that your dealer has that you go to?

    For me... It's ATK - An Advanced Weapon and Space Systems Company. At the facility that I go to, they build carbon fiber shells for Delta rockets. I have seen a Delta rocket before, at the space center in Houston, TX, but to actually walk by one of the sections is amazing. On the backside of the plant, there is a weapons system facility. I remember the first time I walked in there and saw one of those big azz things laying on a platform. I asked what it was and when the guy walking me through told me, I stopped cold. He laughed at me, but it was almost like seeing a scary monster for the first time.

    Anyway, there's several other cool places I go to, but would love to hear about some others from you guys!

    It's funny you mention this, because a recent color instructor I had actually had a porn studio as an account. He told us that it was his first year with 3M, way back in the day, while he was living in California. Funniest thing about it, was that he did not know all this for almost that whole first year!

    One day, while there working on their machine, he started hearing all this mouning and stuff coming from a back room. He said that after this carried on for a little while, he got curious and decided to go check it out. Of course thinking someone was not feeling well or something. So he goes to the back and starts looking around. Opens a door, which it seemed all the noise was coming from and all he saw was dark curtains and bright lights.
    It was at this point that he realized what was going on, so he had to take a look. It was right about then that the lady that normally ran the copier came into the room, snuck up behind him and said into his ear, "Caught ya peaking."

    LOL! He was so embarrassed he left the account without even finishing their machine. He had to go back the next day to do so, but he felt really stupid though.

    Oh well! Great story to break up the time in class!

    The strip club wins.
    We have BAE who maintain our Hornet Jets, when I started this job I was one of three who wasn't ex-RAAF, since then a couple have gone back to work on jets so when i go up there i ask after them and get a (very well supervised) look around.

    The force will be with you always.

    I like having casinos as customers especially when you finish a service call right at the beginning of lunch LOL. Its also pretty cool going past the counting room where at any given time there may be millions of dollars just sitting around on tables.

    I am originally from Greenville and worked for Xerox, for two years, there. During that time, I serviced the only two casinos we had there at the time. It was very cool to walk to the bottom of the boat and see all the carts of God only knows how much money lining the halls.

    I'll never forget the time I had to work on a machine in one of the pits. When I walked in I took off my trench coat, and without thinking, just tossed it up on a cart of dollar coins stacked two high. The pit boss threw the $200 coat on the floor and yelled at me, "Dumb ass! That'll get you a strip search around here!"
