Let me get this straight: you knew how bad the new models performance sucked but thought the stock would stay at a premium?

No, it was because Maytag was still the best company to work for and up until that point, had the very best reputation for quality, as you know. They also paid very well. Who would have dreamed they would go belly-up after 100 years?  Should I have traded all my IRA stock as soon as I saw wax motors failing? not hardly...

 >:( Maytag here in New York was not such a great place.
When I left RCA, I went to Maytag for a job.
The service manager had me go through all the paperwork and take numerous tests as well as riding with a technician for a day (non-paid).
The next morning I went to the office as requested and was told
"Sorry, but you are overweight and would probably miss days of work because of this. Therefore we will have to pass on hiring you".  :embarassed:
