Good friend of mine at work just went through this same thing. Murph's approach is a good one. Let them know you look forward to working with them and will be leaning on them for their knowledge. Make them feel valuable. Doesn't mean it won't be a problem but if you do this and are sincere about it, you've done your part. Some people will look at this as a learning opportunity and strive to improve themselves, while others will sulk and be bitter about being passed up. Either way, their true colors will show no matter what you do. Best of luck in the new position.
I'll be there until next Wednesday night so you might want to move sometime after that just to be on the safe side. I could instantly make $25K more a year with my company if I went to Chicago and eventually more, but after weighing out the pros and cons it just isn't worth it to me. Going from Hawaii to Chicago is one Hell of a change but best of luck bro.
I swear that until I scrolled down and read the other comments I was trying to figure out if Arsen was in that area and smelled some sort of natural gas leak or if he was planning some sinister terrorist attack.
Hey now!!!! Nobody disrespects the reigning champ.......ahhh who am I kidding, you are right. He is shaking me down for 25% of anything I win if he drafts for me. I countered with 20%. He eventually agreed to the 20% but was threatening to take David Akers in the first round if I didn't agree to the 25%. I created a monster with that kid.
I can draft on Sunday but don't go through the trouble of doing all that. Keep it on Wednesday and my son is going to draft for me . I'm 100% fine with that as long as you don't mind him filling in for me.
