It was just me and Dave. We commiserated about jobs.

Re: Thursday North Austin Lunch M&G

Same place every time. Billy's Hamburgers on Hancock drive. Actually the corner of Hancock and Burnett.

Since we seem to have settled on a time and location, I added it to the title of the thread.

This is Billys on Burnet.

There was a movement to relocate to the Hula Hut on Lake Austin, due to The Hut location it makes it even more difficult to get there, eat and return to work with in a reasonable lunch hour. The relocation to Taco Cabana at Mopac and Palmer Lane failed as foreign national owns the chain (New York based company) If anyone finds a local eatery that has bike admiring seating with good access, speak up. Good food at a reasonable price is a plus.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - Billy's - 11:30

I now have three standing meetings on Thursdays... One which happens to fall at 12:30 out time. Unless I get a last minute notice that it is cancelled, I won't be able to say one way or the other if I'll be there.

Don't think I'll be there this week. I have a noon exit interview Schedule clears up for a while after that.

Keep your chin up and head high. You've got friends here if you need us....

I had planned on popping in unannounced to lunch this week. Now I have about 6 different things I need to do tomorrow. Crap.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - Billy's - 11:30

Well, I may swing by around 12:30. My exit interview is noon and I don't plan on talking much. If there is anybody still there, then great. Otherwise I'll catch you all next week or at the pie run.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - Billy's - 11:30

My meeting ran until 1:30.

So.... how do exit interviews go?

Them: So, Mr. Woodbutcher, why are you leaving us?

Woodbutcher: You quit sending paychecks to my bank account.


We have them too, but I've never heard of anything useful gained from them.
