    This is true, but you just need to really appreciate all the money and benefits that Allison, King, the top executives and BOD have received since then.

  • Big article in the local paper about the following.BBT is buying Susquehanna Bancshares and now it comes out that the top five executives of BBT including King are in line to receive $2.6 milliion in extra bonuses in addition to their other pay and benefits.The bonus is for "merger completion" payouts. So they get paid to do the deal and then get extra bonuses for doing their jobs and integrating the company onto BBT network. My understanding is this is not normal and highly unusual way of doing business. What next does BBT's Board of Directors give an additional bonus for the executives that show up for work on time. The merger integration would normally be considered a part of the executives normal job function.

    I now have a replacement mat that cost a little more than half of what the original mat cost. This is what Office Max gave me as a replacement. I bought what the salesman told me I needed for the carpet I had. He also represented it as a lifetime warranty and did not state that I would have to deal with the manufacturer on the warranty. Most reliable companies do tell the their customers when and how the warranties work and make a point of informing the customer if the warranty is not taken care of in house. My point is just tell me what to expect and not mislead me or any customer.

    Had the mat and had the receipt when and where I purschased the mat and that is what I took back to Office Max.. Most first class companies guarantee what they sell when it is represented as guranteed and not specified that it is not their warranty. When it was purschased there was a lot of conversation about the life time warranty, but nothing was said about having to deal with the manufacturer. In my past dealings when it was not the store's warranty the salesperson noted that it was a manufacturer warranty and not the store's. This is the reason for my original comments and they are still true.
