Fred Smith, FedEx Founder And CEO, Once Gambled $5,000 On Blackjack To Keep Company Alive
That was interesting. I didn't know that. Further down in the article, I read about the 1 cent increase due from the PO. Yet, you can buy the forever stamps now. And, they wonder why they are losing money.
Not for me. I only pay attention to what happens at FedEx if I catch it on the net otherwise I could care less.
You may want to keep track of Ground over the next 5-10 years.
That's why you have to be in it to win it...... His gamble paid off
Why I'm not going to be here in 5 years.
congrats & hope you're heading for greener pastures!
Thank you. I don't know about greener pastures I'm just leaving the brown pasture.
He also had a "Hit and Run" that he somehow got away with ... pay off, perhaps?
Yep. Fred hit a killed a 54 year-old man in Memphis early one morning. No proof, but the speculation is that he was drunk, the family got paid-off, and because Fred is King Sheet in a loser town, he basically got away with us. He also swindled his sisters, and welched on some contracts...just ask ATA Airlines, which went broke because Fred voided a valid contract. I hope they sued his weasel ass.
Don't know much about Fred Smith, but he doesn't sound like a very nice guy.
Fred is an evil bastard.
No proof, but the speculation is that you couldn't get a manager's job because you flopped the PLA after your peers threw you under the bus and backed over you a few times.
Look it up, Shill Boy. Fact..no speculation. He killed a pedestrian.Ran him over. The rest of it is an educated guess. MEM is a nothing town, and FedEx is about all they had (or have) going for them. Smith is above the law in Memphis. If I had a peer assessment, it would be a very high score. What's your score on the AKA (Ass Kissing Assessment)? I'd give you the highest score possible.
Educated guess = created from whole cloth?
More educated guesses?
Sure you would, MFE, sure you would! You've shows such high levels of maturity and leadership here. I'm sure it would translate into a high PLA score ROTFL!!! Do you melt down on the belt like you do here?
Elvis, St.Jude Children's Hospital, the best pork bar-be-que, Beale Street, some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
Dude, Memphis is .
He's made up his mind that it's , so it's no matter what you say.
Have you ever been there?
