good luck with your mother, Larry.
by the way, those hospitals are my bread and butter.
my mom is alive and well, but her ability to reason comes and goes. I've had 3 or 4 arguments with her in the past 3 days about
1. taking her shopping
2. her wallet (which I took away from her to keep her from spending like a drunken sailor)
3. her going out on walks alone - the weather is changing now, and if she gets cought in the cold she could be in trouble. she has gotten lost in my nieghborhood and she can't use a cell phone. but of course she sees this as my trying to keep her locked up
seriously, you think having to deal with a crying child is bad, try talking to a crying mother when you try to talk rationally to her
I ended up growing my market 24% last year. I only got compensated for the first 8 %, and now I am in a huge hole for next year, pretty much guaranteeing that I won't make bonus next year. fuck. fuck. fuck. I am so fucking hosed. the problem was, I was so close at the end, and so I put out squeezers to get in more sales, and closed a huge amount of business in the last 2 weeks. now I am going to be worried about the whole next fiscal year. I haven't even started my year, and I am going to worried about it for the next fucking 12 months.
