I was the GM of Crossroads Ford of Wakeforest. At the time we did not have a sales manager. One day Eric showed up from the Cary store, the first thing he said was "i don't want to be here, I am only here because Allen gave me no choice". My reply was " great, why don't you just get to work or quit then". It took us about three days to start getting along and we had a blast. After about five months he started telling me that I would be transfered to the Cary store some day. I thought he was full of it.
 Well, he was right. When the transfer happened he asked me what I thought he should do. I told him that he should stay and be the GM, he said "I don't know how to run a store". My reply was "you are great with people, don't worry about the other stuff". "Just pretend you in Disney World every day". He was an expert at that. Thanks for the memories my friend.
