Happy Track Day #54: Never did I think I’d be HAPPY about something the sales staff did. While I like some of my co-workers and tolerate the others I honestly never saw this coming. I did a remote Friday…no biggie…baseball toss. I get out of the van and am met by our Sales Manager/VP. He quickly looks surprised and says “You’re not Rodney” I respond with “No I sure am not. Never have been never will be.” He proceeds with about 10 more comments (in a row) about how he thought Rodney was coming and gulled me about where Rodney was. At first it was just surprised but after about the first 200 comments I started to get a little irate. I finally said ” If you’d like I can go get him and he can do this remote….if you don’t think I’m sufficient enough.” The rest of the evening he called me Rodney. I know you’re thinking what’s happy about this…..wait for the silver lining my friends.. 2 sales reps and 1 engineer were there and started to defend me and tell me how mad it was making them! Go figure Sales reps have my back?!? lol that made it a little easier to swallow.
