Default Muro items you still possess or wear on a regular basis

http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...lins/crazy.gifStill using:
1) the Director's Chair - pile things on in the basement
2) The Volmax, Tri-Nasal, Dynabac folding chair
3) Tri-Nasal Jansport travel portfolio - used all the time (nice touch Kevin Wager)
4) Tri-Nasal Tumi travel kit (another gift to all from Kevin)
5) Managed Care Flashlight - thanks. Sorry, the wine is gone
6) Volmax/Dynabac - Gray fleece blankets
7) The Muro trunk liner I stole when I left (screw the next person, let them use a piece of plastic tarp!)

http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...lins/smile.gifStill wearing :
1) several USMC olive drab t-shirts left over from the last sales meeting "Muro Corp". Boonie hat scares neighbors while doing yardwork.....
2) Team 2001 - Mission Possible fleece
3) Dynabac fleece - "the rank & file" did not get the Dynabac boots used to step on the bug
4) Dynabac hat (used as much as the market used the drug)
5) Optivar barn jacket

(man, there was a lot of "ready to wear" going on here. What have I forgotten?)


http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...emlins/ooo.gifItems no longer used:
1) The Franklin Planner - I still wrestle with the guilt of using more than one calendar. I mark the guilt reminders daily as a "A1"

Weigh in on your current inventory

http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...lins/smile.gifI found some volmax pocket protectors, and pen lights with battery acid leaking out from them in a box in my gargage. I also found all my Tri-Nasal samples, should I throw those out on a turnpike exit dumpster, or can Charlene still come after me on SAF accountability?

[/ QUOTE ] http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...lins/laugh.gif Hey thank for weighing in with your quality post...I am trying to keep it positive bozo (oops....you made me slip). besides, why get a new life, when I can lounge around in my "Optivar" canvas barn jacket, another fashion find. And what better to keep you dry than the Volmax umbrella, made famous at a wet medical meeting.

I can't put a number on the foreign physicians promising to prescribe "Vol-rax" in whatever country they were visiting from, but it kept all the items they stole from other booths dry while they transported their loot (things we dragged out of our garage that garbage pickers would not take on a good day - such as Volmax tape flag dispensers or Bromfed DM note pads) back to their families huddled in the hotel.

I am at a new company so you don't have to worry about me (thanks again Zig for caring about my life and my need for a fashion make over. Another post like that and I will have to send you the Astelin "Lucy" doll my dog is chewing on.....). The company logo clothing and fun times are fewer.

By the way, that was a $10,000 Movado paid for on the corporate card! I needed the airline points for my Vegas trip. I love this watch!

I can't believe there is actually a Muro posting! This is hilarious. I happened to see the posting while looking up info on another company. My husband still wears a black Volmax t-shirt that I gave him in 1997 to mow the yard in. It is so cheesy looking! Muro was my first pharma company & looking back, is probably the most fun company I've ever worked for (albeit, the lowest paying and the worst products). National meetings were a blast! I've been with "big pharma" for 4 years and long for the days when we had no budgets for speaker programs, received weekly data in hardcopy, and didn't have 3 reps to co-promote with. Even Jerry St. Peter's hairpiece wasn't so bad!

Yes the famous opthmologists who brought us such mainstays as Muro Tears, Muro 128, Duolube, and of course, Muro's Opcon-A. Actually GB brought us Opcon-A originally called Opticon, but lost a suit to Fisons who had Opticrom.

I will always look for the Muro connection with anyone in the industry. We should always take care of the original "crew".
10 plus years with Muro and 3 in big Pharma. They have no idea how we could rock and roll!!!!

That is not correct at all. Muro had way more reps before 1992. I was hired in 1985 as rep 13. By 1992 I was a DM with 15 people in my district.
Nice try, thanks for playing, but you get the booby prize, a box of Salinex samples.

OMFG, I just jumped on here on a lark and can hardly believe Muro is gone! What the hell happened to it? AstaMedica eat it up? Degussa AG give up the ghost on it? I only worked there a few months as a sales rep (didn't work out), but really really liked my DM and some of the folks from my initial instruction class!

What happened???????

At the 1992 Academy meeting they gave out a plastic briefcase that promised "Trinasal--coming soon". Soon is a relative term. As in soon, the polar ice caps will melt or soon we will be travelling with jet packs.
After the Alrex co-promotion we had Pete Rose autographed baseballs. Interesting choice---not a classy former major leaguer like Nolan Ryan or Hank Aaron, but a degenerate gambler-felon who stooped to signing balls for a few scheckles at a medical convention.
A golf shirt given out by Joe A. that read "Hustle--It Pays". Did anyone else ever cringe when he asked us to do this? This was awkward, since hustling is a term for a male gay prostitute.
When GB sold the company for $300 million, they gave their XMAS gift of watermelon rinds!!!! I actually thought this was a joke, but it was not. GB takes his earnings to buy hockey teams, Greek islands, concubines, a string of Country Buffet franchises scattered throughout the south and we get watermelon rinds for humping Bromfed and Guaifed!

http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...lins/laugh.gif Classic Post: I use the old "Trinasal" (One word at that time) vinyl with asbestos fiber backing bag to hold sandpaper. I love how it pops open and stays in place. I think I might drag that one out and bring it to a physician meeting to see if people would take it from a display booth. Pete Rose Alrex baseball is also great. The autograph became one with the baseball and I can now pass it on to my kids and point to the smear of ink and let them know about the other "Charley Hustle" that did not hump Bromfed. I always keep coins in my pocket to jingle just like Joe. "Mission Possible"

Well it is the holiday season again, and that means dragging out the Muro corporate holiday gift "the Muro laser-engraved wooden cheese cutting board."

Nothing is as classy as pulling that bad boy out of the kitchen drawer and lining up the hickory farms and cheese whiz.

I remember the day that thing arrived. I wonder if all the Muro-ites at Inspire are soon going to receive a load of macadamia cookies from Hawaii?

Worst part about leaving the company was being cut off from the cookies.

if you have any Tri-Nasal samples left over they make attractive luminary candles to line your driveway this holiday season. That greasy wax we thought was medicine burns in warm colors. It is a good thing.

Happy Holidays fellow Muro-ites. http://www.cafepharma.com/ubbthreads...lins/laugh.gif

Well, then you can get out your Muro cork opener and sever wine as well. IF the lights go out your still in luck, very romantic with your camo flashlight!!
The best thing about Trinasal was when it was cold and the cap would plug up. You could actually hit the ceiling tile when it broke free!!!

Still have the tri/vol/opt chair and use it all the time for tailgating and tri toiletries kit. One of the best was the free 10 minutes of long distance calling. Since Muro wouldn't pay for a cell phone, i remember another rep calling me from out of town and after about 10 min, a notice would come on saying the minutes are about to end. I heard of many reps doing this.
Muro was a lot of fun to work for and I enjoyed my time while there.
