Today at work, to thank our company for literally millions of dollars of sales each day last week, one of the companies we work with bought pizza for lunch for all our employees. There are four floors in our building (and a couple other buildings I don’t know much about), and here are photos of most of the empty pizza boxes from the first floor alone stacked up to go out with the trash (will pop up in new windows): Lots of pizza boxes.
Sorry about the quality of those photos, those are straight from my phone. But it should give you an idea of the scale on which we operate where I work. Luckily (or unluckily, since I won’t get any of the commissions) I wasn’t involved in trying to make all those sales – my dad is, and he’s having a heck of a time. Would you believe there are TOO MANY calls coming in to close sales properly? This is the first couple of weeks of the busiest season for sales for our industry, but I guess it stays pretty busy for the next three months or so. At which time MY department may begin to feel the volume.
Anyway, I’m off to bed.
