I have meetings tomorrow afternoon in Oxford, Alabama at 4 PM central time after my normal daily stuff. Normally I don’t get home until 9 PM or so on the days that I have my Alabama meetings. That’s one thing I am learning to truly hate about having more than one store. Normally I could get out of the meetings as a manager and maybe go to 10 or 12 a year but now it’s at least one a week and sometimes two or three. Damn. All the time we spend in meetings we could probably drum up all sorts of business just by hanging out in the stores.
I can’t kid myself though. Most of the meetings are held after first shift during the time when I would normally be at home anyway, which is exactly where I would be tomorrow if I didn’t have to drive to Alabama.
