I think I am addicted to blogging! But it is just so much fun! I can’t help that it’s Friday and in 2 hours I will leave work and be free!!! Meanwhile, blogging makes me happy.
I just want to announce that Raimo is an amazing salesman. He made 3 sales in 3 hours yesterday and they all have sizable commissions. Did I mention it was raining? And that he’s only been doing this for a few weeks? I’m sure MSTAR is so happy he’s on their team. Pure talent. It makes sense–he loved to go tracting on his mission. Really though, who loves TRACTING?He does.
He is fearless. It is a gift. Seriously, he talks to cashiers, makes note of their nametag, and uses their name while talking to them. For example,
Raimo: “Hi how are you doing today?”
cashier: “Pretty good, thanks. You?”
Raimo: “Doing well. My wife is excited that the strawberries are on sale today. We’re gonna make some crepes. So how’s work?”
cashier: “Kinda busy today.”
Raimo: “Wow, you’re really good at that. Such speedy service! Whelp. Thanks Rosalita. Have a great day!”
Similar dialogues ensue with other random strangers including people standing near us in line, gas station workers (he knows this lady at the Chevron in Vegas–we go there every time we pass through) . . . Some respond happily, some just don’t get it.
What can I say? He’s mine. I will leave the talking up to him.
And wasn’t he a cute missionary?
