  1. We should keep in mind that when your an ceo you have more expense to absorb then the working man. There is travel expenses, green fees, country clubs and $30,000 dollar a month wine budgets. And this is just to conduct business. Im sure theres more but im just a number who adds to his bottom line, everytime WE take a ph. Call at 0300 on Christmas morning instead of making memories with our families. Remember fella’s we need to give more and be appreciative of less.
