Alas circumstances beyond my control prevent me from telling you just how accurate I feel that is (Dead on) .

True story: Years ago a company was founded by two friends, Well the founders, due to the vagrancies of time, passed from this world and the families wound up with the company 50/50.. One year when funds were a bit short they gave EIGHT key employees stock as a Christmas (it was still called that back then) bonus. This meant the company was owned 46, 46, 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1%

Well, the families got to a point that resembled the Hatfields and the McCoys (or Montaheaus and Capulets for fans of Shakespeare)

What one family wanted the other was dead set against.. Thus the company stagnated. Finally they agreed they needed to sell out, One family needed to buy out the other.. But they could not agree as to who should buy and who should sell.... Finally they remembered they had 8 non-family share holders. Those 8, decided who won and who lost as it turned out.

Least anyone think I am making this up.. My mother was one of the eight. This is a real company located in Michigan, and though neither family owns it today (A holding company holds) The company is still in business... As the O/P put it.. "They replaced ALL the monkeys")

Home is where I park it!
