Well, can I get a bright hello to a drizzly Monday morning? Humidity, showers, and possible thunder showers are in our forecast. Whatever we get, you can bet it is going to make the grass grow.
Work was slow yesterday, up until the last half hour, then I signed up 2 couples for measures and possible installs. That should make the big boys happy. They're always looking for sales. I don't mind selling measures and installs, as long as I don't need to work too hard. Semi-retired, you know? The Gung-Ho days are long gone. Not that I was ever really Gung-Ho about any of my jobs. I did them well enough to get decent pay increases, but I was never a 'do or die' loyalist to management. Being in management was nice, but I never felt to need to keep climbing. Maybe I'm just not greedy or selfish enough.
I work with an associate who's like that, has a 5-year plan. He, however, sees managers as being that group of people who do less and have others do more. Hah. He wants the authority without demonstrating the require work ethic. We did just bring in a new assistant manager... who walks around wearing a small backpack. Yesterday, as I was leaving, I saw the wannabe sporting... you guessed it, a small backpack.
The latest book cover is now on the wall. Next up, The Body Under Ice.
