Quitting a new job after 2 months...please hope me!

I just hit the two month mark at my new job. I am miserable, due primarily to doing the work of about 3 people and the company culture (it's a small, family run business, and the two sons who are taking over the company in the next 2 years ran down the public hallway cursing each other out and hitting one another yesterday, to the point that one of them left with his face bleeding and we had to talk a tenant down the hall out of calling the cops). I've decided to leave, despite not having another job lined up. a) What's the best way to do this, and b) How do I spin it to potential employers? [more inside]

You scratch my back, I... hate everything you stand for?

You have a business. One of your customers has a business. He wants to cross-promote, co-produce events, etc. He subscribes to the "there's a sucker born every minute" business model, charging way too much for crap. He could bring you lots of new customers, but you don't want to give him any more "marks." How do you proceed? Or do you?

Salary Vs experience analysis

Need to do a simple analysis around pay and experience fairness. Example: Two project managers managing exactly same kind of projects and have similar performance levels: PM 1 -> Pay $130,000 ; Experience 15 years; PM2-> Pay $80,000 ; Experience 3 years; I want a mathematical way of analyzing if the person getting paid $80,000 is being under payed. Now I know there are industry standards and charts available. I want to do something that may not be perfect but gives a sense. How much weight should be given to experience and can this be factored in mathematically? Please dont get hung up on accuracy. I want a logical analysis method that does not need to be entirely accurate. Also, where can I find industry charts comparing pay and experience

What is the opposite of a snowball?

This is a slightly strange one, so bear with me if you will! I have been building a rubber-band ball ever since I read the Warren Buffett biography "Snowball". I wanted something in my office that symbolized the snowball idea -- little achievements that gradually grow into something big -- and that I had made myself. It is growing pretty big right now. It occurred to me the other day that a successful strategy requires a dual approach. So now I am thinking that slow and steady is only half the picture. The other half is impulse, intuition, go-with-your-gut and, as my handle indicates, seat-of-my-pants! My question: What can I put in my office that symbolizes this spontaneous trait. The ying to the yang of snowball. The quantum-leap approach, if you will! I want to have something that is either interactive or made by myself so that it is not just an inanimate glump sitting on a shelf. Thank you for indulging me and I look forward to your insights.
