During my lifetime, I noted that people, particularly men, love to tell stories about their life experiences. If you know a fireman or policeman well enough, you know that they can entertain for hours by relating their on-the-job experiences. Even mundane occupations are settings for good stories. Having worked at a telephone company for thirty-two years, I had my share of experiences. I share them with my friends and family. Sooner or later, someone suggested writing a book. Not a classic, but rather one of those bathroom novels loaded with short stories. That's what you will find here. However bizarre, they are all true. Of course the names were changed to protect my buddies and me who did and said some incredibly stupid and sometimes dangerous things. In some cases, the company policies and procedures I write about may not be depicted as they actually were. I've attempted to depict them as the field foremen, technicians, and I perceived them. You will have many laughs and more than a few "I've been there" moments along the way. The telephone company wasn't my whole life, so I threw in a few personal and family stories along the way. Hopefully between work and home, these stories will give you background on the real telephone company and also a seemingly directionless individual who was successful because of both.

About the Author:

Chuck Bozue was nineteen when circumstances dictated the immediate need for a job. Not a career, just a job. After walking out on his first job over differences with his boss, he got lucky. Answering an ad for an entry-level job with the Illinois Bell Telephone Company put his life on track. Following a process seldom seen today, he rose through the ranks from lineman to "lower middle management" over thirty-two years. He is eminently qualified by experience (he has only a high school education) to guide you through the real telephone company. Some of the stories Chuck tells are personally embarrassing, most are funny, some are sad, but all are true. He tells of struggles with his bosses and his antics with fellow technicians. Later in his career, Chuck is the boss and has the inside from several levels of management. The company policies and procedures that were creatively ignored or applied, and the sometimes dangerous antics that happed in the field and the office are depicted from Chucks personal point of view. This book should be required reading in all management 101 courses. It is an eye-opener to what really happens after the formal management training is applied. Along with the laughs will be a few "been there" moments. I guarantee you will think differently the next time you call for the telephone man. Chuck Lives in Channahon, Illinois, with his wife, Linda, the mother of his seven children. Those seven have given him nineteen grandchildren and a huge Christmas gift bill. When not writing, Chuck enjoys home building, remodeling, and riding his Harley.
