A disco biscuit is drugs right?

My last post where I was coldly talking about my foster families got me thinking that I should try to have more of a relationship with Doug the Disco Biscuit.  Since he saved my life. 

I gave him a call to thank him.  I’m not sure who it was more awkward for.  We struggled through maybe fifteen minutes of small talk and that was it.  A few hours later he called back and said that he had work for me if I could get to Tallahassee.  The only caveat being that I wouldn’t thank him.  Haha, kidding not kidding. 

I wasn’t calling him to get work.  I don’t know if he thought I was or if he just did it anyway.  I don’t know what to think about it, but somehow it hurt my feelings.  Just a little.  I was still glad he did it.

In Tallahassee, I met Doug’s buddy Kim Valant.  I thought he said Valiant, and since he said he was a 3rd generation promoter, I asked if he was related to Jimmy Valiant.  He is not.  He ranted for a while about that.  It’s a thing for him.  I told him that I was very sorry I didn’t know more about wrestling from 20 years before I was born.  He looked at me for a minute and then laughed his ass off.  It wasn’t that funny.   

He actually said “I like you kid, you got moxie” which is not something you hear outside of a movie.  Sometimes it seems like he’s doing a character.  I think that’s just him.  He owns a wrestling school and a couple small businesses around town.  He said that he owned a co-op which makes no sense, isn’t the idea that no one owns a co-op?  Or that everyone does?

I assumed he was going to get me some matches but even though he says he’s a promoter, he’s not running shows.  He offered for me to teach at his school.  I told him I barely know what I’m doing and even if I did, I have terrible people skills.  He didn’t seem concerned.  He told me to collect checks, run them through conditioning, and then show them how to take bumps.  99% of people quit after that.  Anyone who doesn’t, his nephew will train.   

I agreed.  What choice did I have?

Putting clients first by putting employees first, immediately after prioritizing fiscal responsibilities and leveraging profitability towards exceeding by empowering our employees to put clients (and themselves) first, in a diverse and respectful environment of only those that come first, first.
