Wednesday, October 26 – Thursday, October 27

Two days to forget

Wednesday was an unmitigated disaster.  Despite working in a location that’s usually done well, I was a complete flop.  It was nearly impossible to connect with potential customers in any meaningful way.  Almost none of them expressed even the barest glimmer of interest in what I had to offer.  What’s more, instead of giving me flat “no’s” many of them gave me wow-aren’t-I-so-clever cutesy responses, which is a pretty good indication that they were finding my approaches totally inept.  If I’m not coming off so poorly, a customer who isn’t interested will just say no without resorting to such lame responses.

Thursday?  I felt lousy in the morning, and considered not going in at all.  I finally decided to go to a nearby location and give it a try.  Not too successfully, alas, as I lasted less than 30 minutes before deciding to call it a day.
