As a wise woman once said..... "is it worth it? let me work it?"


Sometimes you just need a good cry.
It seems that time has come a lot here in Texas. I'm not a very thick skinned gal as previously mentioned.... and sometimes when it has just been a long day I cry.... I feel like such a lameo. I was having a hard day a few days ago. I wasn't selling any, and erbody else was. I was SO frustrated. Selling is one of those jobs that you can't just try harder and it will make it all better. I feel like if I try to hard people can tell that I'm anxious. SO anyways I was having a hard day, I hadn't sold one all day. I knocked on this guys door.. tell him why I'm there... he looks at me and says " Do you really have NOTHING better to do?" I left that door and started bawling... not one streaming tear... we're talkin little kid can't talk kz their crying so hard.... That really wasn't all that mean, it was really the straw that broker the camels back...hmm yes I did just compare myself to a camel.. but you get the general drift?!
Thankfully I have pulled myself together and had a "pb" day... that is a "personal best" day. I sold 4 in one day. WHICH is more then mOSt the guys here have ever sold in one day. Although Stefano out sells me everyday... one of these days I will beat him.... beat him senseless... well I believe I've rambled enough... this is all I have for today... love you all!

Megano,
I wish I would have been there to laugh at you while you were crying. It would be for your own good too! haha! Of course I am KIDDING my little bean and cheese burrito! I wish I was there to toiletpaper that guys house and take his mom out for a nice steak dinner, and then never call her again! What a jerk! He will pay!
This is all.

It almost made me cry....then my heart ached when I read your story but then I felt like I was on Mary Poppins when you told a sad story with a happy ending....you know when they tell jokes and have a tea party on the celling....blah blah blah blah....I love you.

You sound like me, I also don't have thick skin, and let mean people at work get to me sometimes. I'm glad you had a personal best day as a follow up to make up for the bad day. I admire you for being brave enough to do pest control. Hats off to you!

Vanessa said...

What is that guys address? I'll give him something to cry about!

You should just go back by and leave a flaming bag of poop on his doorstep. But I wouldn't use your own poop because that might be traceable... you never know. Not that I'm saying you poop. Or whatever.
