By CARL CORRY Friday, December 10, 2004 In 1996, before agreeing to become one of Donald Trump's chief advisors, George H. Ross suggested some "working guidelines." No. 1: He would work only four days a week, and not Fridays. No. 2: He wanted to take vacations whenever he wanted for as long as he wanted. No. 3: "I said, 'I want access to whatever you have. I can take a plane to Atlantic City or a helicopter, whatever.' " No. 4: "I told him: 'If you're unhappy with me, I leave and we're still friends. If I'm unhappy with you, I leave and we're still friends.'" No. 5: "I said, 'I'll work for cheaper than what I'm worth, but when it's time for a bonus, I want it.'" Trump's response: "I can handle that."
