Another Monday, another work week. The weather's supposed to be nice, that's defined as temps in the low to mid 80s (F) during the day, with night time temps falling into the low to mid 60s (F). These temps are not normal August temps for us here in Central PA. These are the days that are called the Dog Days. I have to keep reminding myself that last summer our temps were much warmer.
Yesterday was oh... so slow at work. I did manage to make my sales goal for the week, not that my measly numbers are going to make anybody happy. I was talking to my ASM and he was venting his frustration because things beyond our control were effecting our sales figures and corporate wasn't taking them into account. I commiserated with him for a while and then reminded him that when it comes to sales, it doesn't make a difference why a store isn't making plan, corporate needs a scapegoat which is why the store always gets blamed. Always.
I made a little video about my team of characters, Eli, Max, Bobby, and Jules. This gives you a little bit more information about them and their names.
