Ever since jumping on board, Eremus has been nothing but trouble. They have had an ongoing spat with their new parent company, Summit Industries, regarding the company’s name. Just when we thought everything had been settled, they wanted the Summit logo to appear on every document. This may not have ordinarily been a big deal, but we had just printed out a contract worth millions of dollars for them to build an entire community for FEMA in Mississippi. Summit tried to get Eremus to go with a different company, but Eremus was so insistent that they put off the sale for two days for us to get our contracts reprinted.
So George Welton, myself, and an Larry the account services guy all stayed late to get it done. I went home at 11. Larry went home some time after I did. George did not go home.
Our efforts netted the company $175,000. Not to mention the money we are going to get for continuing to be their sales contract document supplier. We make money on every mobile home they sell.
Our efforts were not unrewarded. Larry was named employee of the month for his previous efforts with Eremus. George was named employee of the month for that night.
I got movie tickets.
To the dollar theater.
