Re John: He’s posted once, or maybe twice. Haven’t heard from him in a while. I just sent him a text asking how he’s doing.
That really is a “great” story. Scare quotes since it probably didn’t seem all that great living through it, but it’s pretty great all the same. Perseverance always wins.
Coincidentally, I had a job offer from FoMoCo coming out of college in 1986. Looking back, I’m not sure why I decided to go into the utility business instead of the car business. Not sure it matters anymore. But just think how close we were to being co-workers back in the day! 🙂
