Our Supply Chain Advantage crew, Mark, Trish and Erich, recently visited a new client in Colorado. During dinner with the client at the steak restaurant, Sonny Lubick, Trish, SCA’s Senior Optimization & Implementation Consultant, perused the menu and asked how big was the 36oz porter house steak. The server advised Trish it was so big, only 2 men had EVER completely eaten this steak.
Mark, Director of Supply Chain Advantage, who was also at dinner with Trish and the client, could not resist the opportunity to challenge Trisha to order the steak along with a pound of asparagus and eat ALL of it. IF she could eat it all, Mark would sing karaoke to the song of Trisha’s choice in front of the entire Blue Ribbon Team once back in the Indianapolis offices.
Mark didn’t really think Trish would accept the challenge but – she did.
Here’s Trish’s reaction when the steak arrived:
It took her 47 minutes but she did it!!!
She Ate Every Bit of the steak and the pound of asparagus!
During the 47 minutes it took Trish to eat her dinner, servers, cooks, and patrons peeked over in amazement. The client was so stunned that she cleaned her plate, he’d shared the story with the entire company by the time our SCA crew arrived at the client’s offices the next morning. They were impressed!
A Bet is a bet, Mark!
Once back at the BRT offices, Trish and her SCA partner, Erich, Senior SCA Analyst, secretly planned how best for Mark to “pay up”. It was determined that we’d spring it on Mark after he gave an update on the account visit to the entire Blue Ribbon Team.
Want to know what song Trish and Erich picked for Mark to sing? Here it is!
