Do What Matters

I don’t know about you, but this was a tough week. We have new pressures every day, we should have seen it coming.

I’ll tell you a secret about myself. I like to mess with people and argue in emails just to get them worked up. Hard to believe, I know, right? Even though we’re scheduling the drop in customer order that has to ship today, I like to make them think we can’t.

Then my boss calls.

I explain that we had three days to ship this order, and someone dragged their feet for two of them.
