If you need some music to pipe around the lot, I suggest this one from Dr. John. It'll help keep your employees focused on the close.

I understand completely.

A different line of work (I failed miserably as a car salesman) but the same sense of "going braindead" was there.

Ha,

from the chorus:

Oh, but if I don't do it, you know somebody else will
If I don't do it, you know somebody else will
If I don't do it, you know somebody else will
If I don't do it, you know somebody else will

Are you saying, if I don't take their money, somebody else will? Or, are you saying we should stay open late at night so we can confuse them under the moonlight?

Both great ideas btw!

Well, I was actually thinking of the first meaning. But the second could maybe help with the first!

If that is a good plan for you, go for it! Sometimes having a project to work on will keep you on your toes. Good luck with your dealership.

Hey Cardude,

Sounds like you know more what you need and have a plan. I hope you play more than you work.

Congratulations to your wife on her upcoming retirement from me. I, too, am a public school librarian....for one more year.
