Began a new job this week. Computer sales. As I posted last week, I've become something of a dinosaur; it's interesting to see exactly how much. I know next to nothing about scanners, photo printers, hooking up strange hardware, and so on. And of course, learning a bit about what the options are takes time. I've been quite surprised that a major chain is not that helpful in learning how the system works, that is, how can I get the customer the best price, or beat the deal he has at Store X?

Oh well. When I get the sales, I maximize them the best that I can. But I don't get the sales, not yet.

(Rant coming soon about traffic laws.)
