They wanna see an attitude changed and it's tough because he's been out on the field off the field it -- back up he is yet to take this job back. You know any -- opportunities got another opportunity right now to take this job back and he hasn't done yet. So it's it's it's frustrating on shore up its first rate for the organization.

And it's like actually give his opinion based on his experience on what he sees people doing wrong. And they can't handle that I'd get it. It's not that I can deal. War I would argue at Janney as you are perhaps more than anybody else. It's the talk about this as opposed to forgetting. About it you're probably fairly close to a for the reasons you just pointed out. And it's due judging that reaction. As a hell of a lot more credibility.
