THE WASTE RAVEN
Once upon a midnight
dreary, while I pondered weak and weary
Over many a
quaint and curious acquisition of forgotten
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a
As of some one gently rapping, rapping on my chamber
�Tis some shareholder, � I muttered, �tapping at my
Only this and nothing more.�
I distinctly remember, it was in the bleak
And each dying burgundy ember wrought its ghost upon
Eagerly I wished the morrow; vainly, I
had sought to borrow
From my banks who felt no
sorrow, sorrow for this industry whore,-
For the weak
and wasted business who could not sustain its
Nameless here forevermore
Open then I flung the
shutters, when with many a boast and bluster.
stepped a stately raven to audit all my records from
Not a friendly gesture made he; nor a comment, yea or
But with focus, ever ready, to uncover something
Perched upon my chamber door
Perched and viewed my
books and systems, like I�ve never seen
Gasped and stared and nothing more
auditor was mean, and claimed my explanations
To have no correlation to the events from days of
I claimed it was technology, that really got the
best of me,
It couldn�t be my company that�s
rotten to the core
But when he spoke to analysts, to
shareholders he gave no rest
When asked if they should now
invest in this forsaken whore
Quoth the raven
Once confidence is restored tha management will
guide the Street as to earnings etc. investors will
flood back in here at these prices - a more reasonable
multiple will ensue - I believe 24 - 26 is appropriate
right now as long as they meet today. New CEO is a huge
coup for WMI - he put Yellow on the straight and
narrow making it profitable in less than a year after
three years of losses. WMI has the revenues to make a
similar turnaround possible under his guidance. At any
rate I think we'll all know soon. Good luck longs!
But just a little low, that's a hell of a burn
"The board ordered the audit - involving
1,160 auditors at a cost of $3 million per day - at its
Now if they could just get my
pension information right!
Just another case of WM...Wasted Money!! Paint
the shop some other time. Fix the ship!!
are way screwed up, spending money on painting trucks
that should be replaced, not painting containers that
need to go out (customers are getting a
colorchart(blue,burgundy,brown, and green) of containers delivered to them that
leak, don,t roll (about as bad as the ones they
replace) Out of several sizes of containers...
will it stop??
They want you gone because you see
the BS, and you are a team player, that's not what
they want. they want a yes man! STAND TALL!!! You and
others like you are the ones that keep this thing
afloat. Us worker bees can only do so much tho. It's time
for no more self gratification and glorifying of
themselves by mgmnt. They need to get down and contribute to
the turnaround of this company. Stop worrying about
breaking a nail or getting hands or clothes dirty! Pitch
in! Make it happen!
sorry, but must set you straight.
it should be
green vs. blue.
and we have been told to get the
painting done asap. $ 12,000 to paint 6' high of green
with a 8" gold stripe around inside of shop ! lol.
Well, since I asked the question first, what do
you want me to say? I am looking for some calcs on
WMI airspace and haven't seen any.
IMHO I sure
don't see any lack of available airpspace.The tipping
fees bear this out. Even using a wasteshed standpoint,
you have to consider the overflow, because the bottom
line is it can be transported (and is) to whereever
the space exists. So looking at the total amount of
available airspace is also important. Care to enlighten me?
Were you looking for WMI landfills by name, or the
competition in your other post? Won't name specific names of
landfills for competitors because it starts to tread on
anonymity. Look in the South.
Why are you asking about
expansions? The point I was trying to make, is that it is
possible to get into the business. I beleive those
companies have demonstrtaed this.
This is a seperate
issue from how much airspace WMI has at this point. The
discussion was not on who currently had the ~most~
Guess I am unclear on your question.
inhaled too much. Please watch the generalization
about airspace. I've ask that question myself with no
answers. why don't we look at top five wastesheds: NYC,
need to look at it from wasteshed
All the genrals were trained at the same two
schools, now they've been put out to defend the honor of
the method of management wqhich they prefer - central
Hmmmmm, where's Sherman?
