The Resignation

You’re what? That’s right, eventually we all hear this. A person you have worked hard with, nurtured, tutored, coached, guided, etc. has decided to leave you. Sometimes it’s hard to hear.

It Isn’t About the Points

“May I have my water?” I asked politely as I finished checking in. “We don’t have any water,” the young man working the front counter responded. “It doesn’t have to be chilled, just a couple of bottles of room temp water is fine,” I said. “We don’t have ANY water,” he relays with a bit […]

The Early Days: 1999

1999. Of all the things in my life that I have forgotten, both by design and by nature, one thing I remember doing a lot of in 1999 was driving. I mean, I remember driving A LOT. It seems like I wore out two trucks on NC 16, aka Providence Road. Why all the driving? […]

I Turned a Page Today

by Greg Crumpton Today was the first time in the last 16 years that on August 16th I did not own AirTight Mechanical, Inc. It was a unique feeling, to be sure.
