Oklahoma here I come?

I returned from vacation to find out that my company maybe (75% chance or better) relocating me to Oklahoma. We have a large portion of our business that is being transfered to one of our offices there and they may be shipping me with it.

Ummmm, I'm not sure I'm completely liking this idea.

Why me? Because I have the most flexibility out of everyone in the office. Ktreva works for the same company and her position lets her work out of any office the company owns, thus it's no big deal. Add the fact that I am the most knowledgeable member of the management staff on this book of business. I've also turned around three areas I've worked in and handled four major projects in the last year successfully. My track record speaks for itself, I get results.

Now this is starting off as a temporary position. It could be just a couple of weeks or months. However, today they tell me that if all goes well I have the opportunity for advancement and relocation. Do I have a choice for the temporary period... no. The permanent part? Yea, I could always show a complete lack of motivation and drive.

Maybe I just need a new job all together.

Either way, any of my readers around the Tulsa Oklahoma area... You may have a visitor coming your way.

Ugh.... fucking Tulsa? Actually a nice town... if it wasn't in Oklahoma. I hope you like tornadoes and ice storms :P

Big Tulsa is only a five hour drive from here. If you get here I'll take you to a Cowboy Action Match.
Do not close your mind to a move to Far North Texas. Taxes are lower and we have "shall issue" CC permits.

Just another example of businesses being run out of the state.

And it would suck if you left.

And, could you really stand to live in a musical?

You know Oklahoma is exactly like the musical. Spontaneous singing, goofy cowboy outfits, etc.

It's their way of getting you out of their hair.

At least you would be in an area that wasn't afraid of guns.

Shadoglare: I thought of you when I first heard this. I knew you would have warnings for me

Petey: That's okay, I was in the musical Oklahoma... if it's like that than all I need a surry with a fringe on the top.

Wil: This is not what I had in mind

QW: I don't think so, they have easier less expensive ways to get me out of their hair.
