But he's still a good guy. Paid his dues. It's a headache for the bosses, I'm sure, but he's earned it.
Worked with two guys who were crusty old geologists. They both had "suck it" parameters.
First guy said he held a bucket in each hand, one filled with money and the other filled with crap. When they both got full, he was out of there.
Second guy made a flow chart based on having two bad days in a row. If today was bad day #1, the flow chart said come to work tomorrow. If today was bad day #2, it said to retire.
