Hello everyone how are you tonight?

I just ended a crazy week.
I answer phones at a dealership, and this week I have had more angry customers than I ever have I also have noticed a tension between everyone there that has been tough to handle.

Today I found out why, the salesmen are on straight comission now so they don't get paid hourly anymore. So the rude customers are the result of sales being pushed and rushed because there are no hourly wages and they all want thier comission. That accounts for the tension too.

So how was your week? Better than mine I hope?

  • Monijane, Honey, Sweetie,
    Don't say that, please don't say that. There are things to live for, but sometimes you just have to see the good there is...anything! I have felt so low sometimes that I wanted to slit my wrists, but what's strange is that every morning afterwards, I felt better. It made me think, "What if I had given up and done myself in?" You have to find something or some one to live for. Even if we don't feel like anyone listens or cares, people do love you and their world would be so much emptier without you in it. My niece took 3 bottles of Tylenol and was clinically dead, but she was found just in time and the EMT's brought her back to life. She was so glad they did, it turns out & it made her realize that she had something to live for. The people who you leave behind are never, ever the same again & someone in your life loves you more than you know. I am going to pray for you every day. God bless u.

  • I baked all day. 4 loaves of bread and 4 pizza crusts. Planted some strawberries and rode my bike to the store.
    My husband and I are getting ready to go to Bible Study while the boys stay home finishing their pizzas and watching a movie.

  • Anon 8:05 I have been eating at my desk going on two years now and they JUST NOW told me I wasn't supposed to.

    Now I have to run to the back and gobble it down because they say I'm not supposed to have a lunch because I only work 6 hours.

    I tell ya I try to be grateful, because I do have a job and there are a lot of people out there who don't, but at times it is very hard.
