    Scott is an excellent guy to work for. He'll give you the tools you need to do a good job.

    As for giving the money you need to keep a roof over your head, well, that's probably not Scott's to give. It's a "competitive sompensation package" at $20-25k, which has got to mean the competition isn't too much.....LOL.

    But, in fairness, Oklahoma is a lot cheaper than most places. And, if push comes to shove, you could live in an underground tornado shelter.

    And, you're only about 15-20 minutes from the second largest casino in the world, so if you're lucky you can turn the $20-25K into $21-26K. And if you aren't lucky, you can just sleep in the casino and shower in the nearby truck stop. Hey, what else do you need?
