T-Mobile vs. JB Hunt


Ho, ho, holy hell it's been a while since Chad & Cheese were on the mic together, but the boys are back in the saddle again, tackling the following topics like only they know how: Facebook shutting down its job board outside North America, Kronos getting hit by a ransomware attack, Turing becoming the latest unicorn, JB Hunt playing Scrooge, T-Mobile playing good ol' St. Nick and the Army kicking COVID's ass.


Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol!!!

Joel (24s):

We're back. Well, if you're listening to this, you're either hung over from the holidays or escaping the in-laws. Hi boys and girls, it's your favorite secret Santas, and you're listening to the Chad and Cheese podcast. This is your co-host Joel "nacho Grande" Cheeseman.


Chad (41s):

This is Chad "back in the saddle again" Sowash.


Joel (44s):

And on this week show Facebook gets out of the job board business, Kronos pulls a CareerBuilder, and you guessed it holiday unicorns, baby.


Chad (56s):

Fuck.


Joel (57s):

Let's do this. Oh shit.


Chad (1m 5s):

This is it. Getting pumped up!


Joel (1m 11s):

The boys are back.


Chad (1m 18s):

Yes!


Joel (1m 19s):

Oh yeah after a little holiday break. Chad, why don't we let the listeners know what we've been up to?


Chad (1m 24s):

You know you just got back so the first sound effect is hallelujah.


SFX (1m 31s):

Oh yeah. Where's the Tylenol.


Joel (1m 34s):

That's to say that I'm recovering a little bit less than 24 hours after leaving Cancun would be an understatement. So yeah, I, two head fakes in terms of getting the hell out of Indiana.


Chad (1m 46s):

Thank God.


Joel (1m 46s):

I was able to go to Mexico with my three kids, by the way, a four year old and Cancun is a whole new level of interesting. I met up with some of our Canadian in-laws, which was great. So it was nice to get away. I think I've contracted a bit of a cold from my kid, who had the snots, speaking of vacation, Christmas vacation, and the dog snots, which four year olds, don't don't ever, you know, pull back sneezes and coughs on their parents. So I've got a little bit of that, but we tested negative for COVID. So at least I'm not Omicron friendly at the moment.


Chad (2m 23s):

That's awesome. Last Friday, we definitely missed you. We had Peter "Mr. ATS" Gold, who stepped in for you, while you were vacationing, I was still in the fucking fog from being in Europe for three weeks. So hopefully we'll get back in somewhat the saddle again or this week. And it's funny because some people actually reached out and thought we had a breakup or something. I wasn't on the Europe podcast and you weren't on last week's Friday podcast. So everybody is like, Hey, what's up?


Joel (2m 58s):

Hey, they noticed! That's good news. They noticed that we weren't on the show together. I was nice to just take a little holiday. It's Christmas time. And it's what better episode than to like get our legs back then right before Christmas?


Chad (3m 12s):

This is the 192nd Chad and cheese episode of 2021. So I'm sure they noticed!


Joel (3m 22s):

Yeah, it only feels like a million. Well, I think we do shout outs first. Shall we get to that?


Chad (3m 27s):

Let's do it. Yeah. Yeah. Right out of the gate. I've got a quick iCIMS story. We were in the Farro airport going from Farro. We were going to Paris for a couple of days before we came home and Julie going through security lost my iCIMS Yeti. Apparently she had some ice. She likes to put the Yeti in the freezer and then pull it out and put water in it. Well, she got all the water out of it, but there was still a, like a half inch of ice in the bottom. And they were like, yeah, that's not going to fly. And they took the ice and Yeti. I posted immediately to Twitter that a we lost it. And the next thing I know, I get a box and I've got two new iCIMS coolers.


Chad (4m 13s):

Yeah. A little Yeti, like, and yeah. It's, it's pretty awesome. So thanks. Thanks guys.


Joel (4m 18s):

So you, you may have just blown my mind. Okay. So Julie puts an empty, empty Yeti in the freezer.


Chad (4m 26s):

No, It has a little water in it because she likes ice. Right? So she puts the Yeti in the freezer with a little water, which obviously makes ice. So when she gets up, all she has to do is put water in it. It's cold and boom, she's out. Well, she did that and the ice didn't melt and we lost a Yeti.


Joel (4m 43s):

That blows my mind. I've got a new way to fucking fill my Yeti with cold cold water now. Thanks Julie. Yeah. Merry Christmas. All right, dude. So I've been out for a week. My shout outs are really sparse, but I've got like one really important news story. And you know what that bell means. It means Taco Bell news. So the one that is that actually caught my eye this week, Taco Bell got rid of the Mexican pizza a couple of years ago.


Chad (5m 13s):

OK.


Joel (5m 13s):

Probably my favorite item on the Taco Bell items, which I enjoy pretty much all of them. Well, news came out this week. I'm ready to get ready to be blown away, they're bringing back the Mexican pizza, but also Chad, they're adding wings to the Taco Bell menu!


Chad (5m 31s):

Oh come on!


Joel (5m 33s):

Holy Shit!


Chad (5m 34s):

That's just too much! Yes


Joel (5m 37s):

Happy holidays to me.


Chad (5m 38s):

That's just too much. Come on. Yes. Happy holidays to Joel. Happy holidays to me. You probably have all of this stuff somewhere in your house, but we've got PillarHR swag, Jobcase, sent three bottles of wine, a handwritten card they're so classy John Thurman, the co-host of the sociat half-hour podcast send a handwritten card and in a coaster, John, you got to send beer buddy coaster's are great but we need beer. Not to mention Santa Joel was in t-shirt delivery mode before setting off for vacation. So I've seen the Chad and Cheese t-shirts landing on doorsteps, mailboxes and in the social media feeds all over the place.
