This. Is. Not. A. Good. Thing.

I really wish I knew what was going wrong this week. With the holidays in the rearview mirror I figured that sales should be picking up at a decent pace.  Indeed, when I went into Nassau on Monday morning for the weekly meeting I found out that the most of the people had done very well last week.  Friday and Saturday in fact were record-setting days.  What I figured, in my all-too-trusting manner, was that I was overdue for a big week and therefore would be putting up some terrific numbers.  Bound to happen, right?

Wrong.  Monday was sort-of-semi-somewhat decent, which was not good enough considering that many people had the day off for the Martin Luther King Day holiday.  I was in one of the busier sales locations, moreover, so there was a steady parade of potential customers.  My numbers should have been outstanding, but they weren’t.  As for Tuesday, well, let’s just say that it is a bad memory best forgotten.  I spent it in my Old Reliable nearby location, a location were I can always count on doing okay.  Not today, despite my very best efforts it was a disaster.  People were quite rude, too, which is completely uncharacteristic for that location.  Wednesday was slightly better, not that it could have been any worse.  Because I have to attend to some outside business matters on Thursday this will be a shorter than usual week for me.  For that reason I really had been counting on three good days to start the week.  Reality had other plans.
