I am meeting the Vice President next week. Dick Cheney? No, the VP of my department will be visiting Central PA next week. My company is a national company with offices located across the United States, mostly in rural areas. My VP is making his rounds, meeting all the worker bees. On the western side of PA, I am the only employee in my department. In Central PA, there are about 15 other employees in my department. The VP scheduled a meeting at 8:00AM. It is a 4 hour drive one way for me. I asked my boss if there are travel monies available so I can drive out the evening before the meeting. My boss said yes, so I do not have to worry about falling asleep in front of my VP.
