He's Smokin'

Yep. The Colonel. You know the Colonel - the bane of my work existence. The one who makes coffee from bathroom water and can't sell to save his life, but is the "senior" sales rep for our company.

He recently had a series of strokes and was in ICU. By the grace of God, he survived without paralysis, and even made it back to work.

Well, Mr. Smarty Pants told us he was required by the doctors to quit smoking. He did okay for a while, but yesterday he was back to old ways.

I busted him and he confessed. Said he would talk to the cardiologist he was seeing yesterday to prescribe him that patch. We informed him he didn't need a prescription - he needed to walk into Walgreen's.

Well, we don't know the status yet. He called in sick today.

More as we learn it.
