Everyone in this village is panicking because we are going to have a huge blizzard this weekend; the grocery stores are almost like a barren wasteland.
The water is gone and the eggs and bread need to be restocked as well; however, I went to the pet store to get pet food yesterday and that place looks as if it has been ransacked as well.
I do not guess why pretty much everyone gets freaked out when we are expecting snow, and we live in a cold weather temperature and snow is not uncommon either; still, people get frazzled when the first storm comes. We had a ton of heating unit repairs and tune-ups this month at work. I do not mind all the extra eating repairs, because I work on commission. I get 28% of all the sales that I receive throughout the day. When I started, it was only 18%, however I’ve now been working with this heating company for 12 years. I also run the new recruit training program here. I had to convince my boss that I was worth 28%, because nobody else makes that much commission. I had an offer from another company for the same and my boss really didn’t want me to leave, however he offered me the raise and made me head of training. I receive that commission by being the top earner most weeks here. In fact, I’ve been the top earner for 5 of the last 8 quarters. I do top quality work and I’m also lighting fast. Still, I was worn out at the end of the day yesterday. I’ll be happy when the snow finally arrives so people will calm down and care about winter.
