I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

I'm already out there throwing out all of yesterday's work!
One of our customers is a HUGE eco firm that does solar panels and clean energy. They're in several states. In the past two weeks, we've thrown out over 5 million envelopes and over 5 million combined preprinted shells because they will no longer be using them.
