When I am not performing or chasing after my three kids I work as a logistics manager analalyzing freight spend, optimizing and negotiating warehouse and freight contracts etc...for a very large company. Today we celebrated my director's 60th birthday with a surprise party and his secretary asked me to perform a bit. Generally I don't perform at work at all, very few people in the company know that I perform, even my director has never seen me. There were about 70 people inclduing the CEO, President and all executives in attendance. I performed the following and the 7 minutes were of some of my finest performance to date...His sectretary introduced me
" As you all know David often miscommunicates with you so today we thoughgt he might try some non verbal communication with you and see where it takes us"

I started with a 2 phase book test routine using one of my "mytery novels" Smile and ending it using his copy of Freakanomics
I closed the performance explaining how challenging logistics is and that its incredible how many hundreds of thousands of trucks are on the road making deliveries daily, 99% don't crash, deliver on time etc facing so many challenges...its really incredible how the trucks and drivers manage to properly and efficiently deliver the goods to the proper destination. I lined up five wooden trucks that we receive from vendors and asked him to call out a number 1,2,3,4,or 5. He called out 5. I drew his attention to the back of the 5 trucks and had him read off the "trailer numbers" that were afffixed to each trailer. He read 001, 002, 003, 004, and 005. I asked him to then look at the front of each truck and notice the licence plates on them. On trailer number 005 he confirmed the license plate read his name while on the other 4 the licence plates read someone else's name. He was floored, the entire room went wild. I handed him the card and gift that unfortunately was too large to fit inside the trailer.

Congrats David! Sounds like you gave everyone a very enjoyable performance.

To add to the amazement, your username is david12345, and you used trucks numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

The above post was your 612th -- the 6 for your boss' 60th birthday, and the 12 for the 7 minute performance plus the number 5 he freely chose.

The stars were truly aligned, my friend..! Smile
