Season's Change

 I’ve always been somewhat of a pessimist. I was channel surfing the other day and “Everybody Loves Raymond” was on. It was the Recovering Pessimist episode.  In it Ray is awarded the sportswriter of the year. He was reluctant to go to the dinner because he didn’t want to be disappointed if he lost. When he gets home, even though he won, Ray is totally depressed thinking that for something so good to happen to him something equally terrible must be around the corner ready to strike. Well yeah, that can be me and like Ray, I’m a product of my parents who were just the same.  Don’t get me wrong I love my parents and I'm thankful of the man they've made me today but my dad’s favorite quote was, “If it wasn’t for bad luck I’d have none at all.” Well if that doesn’t brighten your day what will? 

Anyway, the reason for my rant is that for the first time in almost 20 years, on Monday I will be working for someone other than Optimum.  Between utterly changing philosophies (not for the better) when the French company Altice bought Optimum from James Dolan in 2015, to the absolute shit sandwich that this year has been, it’s going to be quite the welcome change for me.  I’m going from a corporate billion dollar behemoth whose wheels are sadly coming off to a family run business where we have a shared focus on what I do best which is to help people and I couldn’t be happier.  It’s been a while since I’ve been this happy so forgive me if I look over my shoulder and wonder if there’s a catch to this. Like Ray said, “Alright, I’m a little pessimistic, but I got it under control ok? I can be optimistic any time I want to.”

On a side note, I feel so optimistic, I think you'll be seeing more of the Spector Sector from here on out.
