At one time, Linden assembly, along with Baltimore, Doraville and Wilmington assemblies were under my control as a subject matter expert. I thought I would share this with you, it makes me sad when I think about all the people that use to work at Doraville, Baltimore, and Linden ...

Thanks, but aaargh. Like watching a loved one die. Yet it is fascinating to see at the same time.

Poignant as an elephant graveyard.

I appreciate your effort in bringing this to my attention PCS...

It's long gone by now, I just found a bunch of my Linden pics of when they were ...

Ok, that's what I thought...

Still very sad though.

Baltimore, Doraville, and Wilmington were never "under your control". Why don't you tell them what a SME really does, because it sure as $h! ain't running operations at 3 manufacturing plants.

Stop the self-edifying bull$h!.

Ahh I was wondering where you were, I've missed you ..

As a matter of fact all four plants reported up through me on one particular subject of which I was the SME at that time, oh by the way, I am still very good at my old job, even though I don't do it anymore ... :smilewide:

Slightly different than the first impression you gave, now isn't it? But now you give the impression that all these plants were calling you every morning awaiting their instructions on what to do for the day.

Why don't your REALLY tell them what a SME does?

Different impression, not at all, my 1st post is the same as my 2nd. Actually I told them what I wanted and they had to comply ... If not, it would be reported to their divisional management and to GM. In my particular field at the time I was the SME, and I enforced on those 4 plants what GM wanted done. I was so good at what I did, so much so, I was asked to join a special team to make sure all GM plants in North and South America complied. You either did as instructed or GM fired the managers who didn't. Two in Canada thought GM was joking, sadly they didn't work at GM long. Funny how the rest soon complied ...

But as I said I don't do that anymore, but I'm still good at it ... :smilewide:

Wow, you sure can spin bull$h! into silk, can't you? Good to see in other threads, others are starting to call your bull$h! as well.

Just to be perfectly clear to the others here, GM has HUNDREDS (thousands?) of SMEs....actually, technically now that they have cut a lot of fat and don't have the renduncies in job positions anymore, everyone is a "SME" at what they do. You aren't special.

And please don't tricked into believeing that he actually fired any plant management. He may have owned some process that they didn't follow and ratted them out to higher ups, but he by no means called them into his office and actually told them to hit the road.

But please go on......

Oh but I am special now, and I was then too, which is why I was offered a position on the GM Audit Staff back then, but I decided to go to Opel instead, seemed like the better choice back then.

You really should read what I wrote instead of wanting to see something that is not there, where in what I wrote did I say I fired them? What I said was GM fired those managers. Please go back and reread that. :smilewide:

I'm not sure what renduncies or believeing are, I guess Hooked on Phonics worked for you ... :rotflmao:

Know this too, I won't be leaving on 02/17/09, much to your dismay I'm sure ...

I don't know why you hate, when all I have for you is love ... Even more so now, since I just went through a cancer scare that a few people here know about, I found out last week that I don't have it, but it was two months of Hell, and I had to go through more $h! in that two months, than you could ever throw my way ... So yeah, I'm all about the love now ...

Enjoy your day, I know I am, life is too short ...

You're right. 100%. You never did say you fired people. But that sure is the impression you wanted to give everyone reading it, that you have that kind of power. But you do that in all your posts. Let's go back to that first post where you said plants were "under your control". Whatever, I guess that's one way to avoid criticism.

Take a step back. What would the average reader think that meant? They would probably think somehow that you were controlling those plants' day to day operations, which couldn't be farther from the truth. But your answer will always be something along the lines "I didn't lie about any of that, go back and re-read it." But some around here have more knowledge about GM and the auto industry than you might think and can see what you are trying to do.

See, you choose your words carefully to accomplish one of 2 things in almost all your posts:

1. Deliberately push the buttons of other posters to get them agitated.

Why? No one but you knows that.

2. Either post entire lines of bull$h! or leave out certain things so that others somehow think you have huge influence in overseeing GM. You don't. You're not that special.

Why? The only thing I can think of is that you lack self confidence in real life and need people on the internet to like you and make you feel important, so that in your eyes, you are better than everyone else. And that's just sad.

As for the mis-spleeings...whoops, I didn't take the time to hit spell check. Darn. If that's all you got, you're reaching. I do have buttons you can push, but spelling is not one of them, especially if it happens when typing, I'll be the first to admit I suck at it (oh, but wait, that further emphasizes item #2 above, you're a better speller than me!)

And as for that hippie nonsense about love/hate, that's just silly. I don't hate you just as much as you don't love me. Its the INTERNET. I generally enjoy reading posts on this site, but can't stand it when I see someone constantly trying to prove he's better than everyone else here or flat out laying down the bull$h!. That's seems to be the reason I only respond to your posts, haven't seen other posters resort to that behavior. And I'm willing to guess I'm not the only one around here that has started seeing all this....I've seen the posts in other threads.

Either way, I figure this thread has played out and no one wants to continue reading this exchange, so until the next line of drivel emerges from your keyboard, I will fade back into the background.

Cheers!

OK, back to work for me I guess.

This exchange needs to come to an end now, guys.

02SS: PCS is a well-known quantity around here and most of us are used to him. I know you are a newer poster and couldn't know that - but trust me on this one. He and I have done battle on many occassions but manage to maintain a civil, even friendly, relationship despite our divergent opinions.

Please don't take this as a criticism, just trying to keep the peace. And I'd love to hear more of what you would be willing to tell us about GM structure and terminology. SME youy say...

Tell me more.

I really don't care what you think or say, you don't pay my bills, and I don't see your name on my paycheck. Talk to me when you can prove your accusations. I'll be waiting a long long time for that, because you can't ... Better than everyone else? Hardly, I admit my mistakes on a daily basis ... Odd your post sounds like someone else on this board, with similar spelling mistakes too ... But your right, I'm not going to waste my time on someone in the virtual world who is just full of piss and vinegar. You're right it's just the INTERNET after all and you matter not, at least to me. So I won't waste anymore keystokes on you ... Any further responses from you will be met with silence from me, as I just don't care, but then I never did. :smilewide:
