I don't know yet. The way it stands right now, my bid is the winning bid but it still has to be approved by the board of directors. The corporate world is so complicated. I am "supposed" to know this week. We'll see.....!

A board of directors has to ok the grounds bid. That is nuts. They should be deciding the overall strategy of the company, not who us going to cut the grass and trim the shrubs. That is one if the reasons why I am happy I am no longer working in corporate.

It's killing me, too: I want to tell everyone here, but won't until I have a definite "yes" or "no" on my bid. An email I got this morning from them stated that I would know very soon--no date given. Winning this account would be so awesome. Here's a hint of who it is (albeit a puzzle): working for this entity would grant me some job security not usually found on such a large scale. Now go rack your brain!

When you say this is the big one, are you referring to the size of the fail?

Hmmm, let's try to narrow this down some.

Fortune 100 comapnies in ATL: Coca-Cola Company, Home Depot, United Parcel Service, Delta Air Lines, AT&T Mobility, and Newell Rubbermaid.

Intenationally recognized...Coke or Delta. I'm going with Coke for my guess.

Godd Luck to ya, hope you get it!

Wow, I knew being a barber to the stars would bring minor celebrity status, but never thought cutting grass would celebrity status. Good luck with the bid.
