The combined company would provide a cost-of-living adjustment to employees who move to Washington state from Kansas, T-Mobile President Mike Sievert said, but that would be an uncommon occurrence.
An adjustment... down?
For moving from KCMO metro to Seattle metro - I think that would be an adjustment up... right? Or am I misreading this?

COL is about 50% higher in Seattle

They're saying they would expect to keep both offices and few people would move from KC to Seattle but would adjust up when they do.

No, you're right, I read it backwards. Probably because Legere mentioned moving to Kansas.

Better buy it now before interest rates go up. And save a little money to enlarge the tiny walk-ins and replace the astroturf.
All this time, I've wondered why they routinely tack on unrelated charges to my bill and change my plan for no reason.

In case any of you have another $10MM to spare. I believe Masayoshi Son (CEO of Softbank) has also put his Mission Hills mansion up for sale. For your reference, it's next door to Claure's house.

Imagine being so rich you buy a mansion instead of paying for a hotel for one week out of the year.

it's going to be tough finding buyers for these homes in our market but then again these guys have deep pockets and could probably wait it out.
