We met at Amazon. We both worked in outbound. Then we moved to ICQA . I became a trainer. Leander he started calling number one . I called him number two. That was four years ago. We called each other that every day we worked together.
I hope Max is doing okay. We joked about how lazy he was and wouldn't help with the bills. He loved you like a son.
