Hey, whatever happened to that little midget, Rob Keith. He certainly was a funny guy but couldn't manage a bake sale. Just wondering if the dwarf is still with ServiceMaster. Got to give it to him, he survived by hiring the Chairman and the CEO's family members, so he was as stupid as he looked.

I also remember that guy. If Pollard stopped real fast, Rob would end of with a broken brown nose. Ha Ha.
I spent 11 years in the Education side and I remember Keith, thought he was a nice guy and easy to get to know buy a little on the shallow side.
I heard Rob is totally retired. I was several levels below him and although funny, he didn't know the business at all and was reluctant to engage in conversations with customers because of it so he simply stayed in the home office and bounced a tennis ball off the wall behind his desk for hours. That's a true story. But he was smart enough to hire the Chairman's son in law for a top position so he wasn't totally stupid. He also hired his former college room mate who was so unqualified that when he was let go under AraMart, he was unable to find a position for over 3 years. the best story is he had lunch with a customer in the home office dining room and through out the lunch he kept talking about schools because he thought the customer was a school customer but instead he was a healthcare customer. It was John Pace who finally told Rob that this person works in a hospital.
Jim - I am sure that he is doing well and is a lot more successful than you are or ever will be.
