Default Introduction from Chicago

Hi from Chicago. First of all I would like to apologize, I've been a lurker for about a year and feel like I could've been involved in so many discussions. I've gotten to know a few members on this site , there are many characters and they shine through. I've been in the paint business for 6 years, high school senior through college .I've been employed by a commercial paint store that did about 8 million in paint sales back in its peak so I've learn and experience the business síde of paint and the science of it for about a quarter of my lifetime. I am young and work for the man so I've felt a little bit intimidated to join but finally decided to because I feel like I can contribute my two cents from a unique perspective. Thank you guys for having me, and I look forward to.my first " real" post!

Thank you again, @workaholic, I'm use to your cartoon pic with the metal contraption, that really personified your workaholic name.

Yep. Doug Lycheck follows up with me every so often to switch. He's a good guy, but I'm still a Moores guy at heart. Where are you out of?

@ schmidt, small world , Lyjak is the commercial rep out of my store as well. It doesn't shock me since he's been around for 20+ years. I'm out of the Peterson Park store, stop in and have some coffee some time,.it would be awesome, I've read some of yours and can tell your the real deal, its always a pleasure to deal with the real professionals.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
