My Wife

As some of you know my wife and I both work for Union Pacific railroad. I Don't normally participate much in this forum but I'm not a big fan of bad news and this is what I seem to encounter when reading within the chat swamp. Having said that I would like to give a shout out to my wonderful wife for being selected for a promotion to Yardmaster. This is a pretty big deal for our family and somewhat of a prestigious position within the ranks of UP. She was already one of a few female Engineers within the company and this is beyond that. I'm very proud of her!

Wow - that is awesome! A big congrats to her - hope she doesn't decide to fire you!

Re: My Wife

Thanks Joe. Funny you should say that because my career is somewhat in her hands. I think I'll be ok though. I've actually chosen my job based on stress level and I like where I'm at but she has ascended both in pay, and also stress. She's much calmer and smarter than me though. I chose a smart woman but not sure what she saw in me?

That is wonderful news. It's always good to see people promoted on merit!
You are a very lucky man to have someone so talented.

No, I'm still in charge of that department. She calls me the E.C.I.C. (Entertainment coordinator in charge).
