Dunno, I'll ask tomorrow when he's awake.

BTW, for you that don't know, that's a $138,000 car... :|

Lemme guess, the president made a bunch of stupid decisions, got the company in trouble and fired a bunch of people.
Now he's getting a bonus because stock went up since the company is now perceived to be "leaner" :roll: .
Or is it one of these rare cases where a president actually did good work?

No, but they were about a billion dollars in the hole, but that was due to the economy, gas prices, and such. My dad works for Freightliner (semi-truck maker) which is owned by Diamer-Chrysler. All of the senior class and such have Mercs or a nice Chrysler (I think there's a 300C or two).

and where's your dad in the hierarchy? :p
A couple of people down from getting a company car. He's no where near the top, but he's no where near the bottom. He's been there like 27 years or something.

Administration. He's kinda in charge of the buildings (who should go where, finding new locations, etc.).
