…our retail-sales reps had some problems last year. Jill in Accounting - wow, did she ever have a brutal third quarter or what? I’m not taking anything away from our competitors, they really out did us with excellent customer service and superior products, but, yes, we did have some problems in our warehouses. When we landed the General Widgets contract, that was definitely big, I put in a coupe of key phone calls to some movers and shakers over there at GW, that really helped our numbers, but we just couldn’t over come the slow first quarter, the even worse second quarter, the all but disastrous third quarter, even though the fourth quarter worked out very well, I mean it wasn’t enough, and I don’t think it’s fair to say that Sally at Inhouse Sales should be the only one to get the blame for that, but it just didn’t work out for us. You know, I’m passionate about what we do, and we didn’t fail because I didn’t work real hard, I can tell you that, but, yes, it’s true, Andy over at HR underestimated our staffing needs.
