so......i'm the only one at work willing to call gallys without being nagged. as much as i hate the things, they're part of my job so i call them. what are gallys you ask? they're lists of customers who have shopped in your department in the last 6 months who the store has a phone number for, who you're suposed to call and tell about the sale-of-the-week. who you've probably never helped before, who don't know you from eve, who are called every frocking week or so by some sales person who they've never shopped with who says their name wrong. as you can probably guess, most of these people aren't happy to get your calls. especially since they've probably also been called by "their" sales associate who has their name in a client book and knows which sales they want to hear about. unfortuantely, the people who are pissed off to get your call aren't the ones who write letters to the store. the little old ladies who love getting called b/c no one ever calls them, who talk to you for 10 minutes about nothing when you call them, and who come shopping during the sale for something to do....they write letters. so the store keeps printing gallys.

anyway....so i'm the one one at work in my department willing to call gallys without being nagged. nevermind that i'd rather call my clients who actually like hearing from me and have never ever gotten a sale out of the damn gallys.....anyway. i've learned to call when i'll catch people's answering machines, and to script myself for the calls, so i can get through them all and it still sucks but is less painful about it. so i make my calls right away when i get the list, not cause i'm sposed to but to get them out of the way. and so how does my boss thank me? by giving me 75 calls to make. instead of the 10-20 that everyone else is assigned. without even a "thanks, i know these suck but i also know i can count on you to do them, and i really appreciate it.". again, i like my job. my boss makes me crazy.

so i lost my cell phone this morning while i was out chasing my soccer ball around the park. freaked out. looked all over where i'd been. asked random people. almost ended up melting down into a crying heap. left the park, went the 7/11 and called my phone. got an answer.....and a very nice older gentelman brought my phone back to me. said he couldn't keep anything that wasn't his, happy easter, be more careful next time, have a nice day. wow. blew my mind in a good way. (which rocks b/c most mind blowing things lately have been the oposite way lol) so i didn't lose my phone for good. *relieved sigh* i'm not taking my phone to the park anymore, that's for sure.

so my boss looked over everyone's client books the other day. some people had lost theirs. some had them completely out of order. some addmitted to throwing them away. meanwhile, mine is completely unreadable to anyone but me...but....it has my tommy bahama clients seperate from my other clients, both in alphabetical order with little letter tabs. it has phone numbers for the sports furnishing and tommy b departments in all our other stores, complete with helpful people to talk to there. it has the shipping costs, pagers for important people in the store, tailoring fees, register instruction bookelt etc organized in the back of it. it has duplicate recipts from my clients stuck to their pages. and notes from every time i call them - at least every two weeks. so she gives me an a on clientelling on this little piece of paper chart that she's got up in the back room. and lets me off the hook from showing it to her next week with everyone else. and then she does my offical bloomingdales review that goes on file and gives me a "good" on clientelling. needs improvement is the worst rating. good is the second worst. what do i have to do to get an excellent? include a microcaset recording of every nice thing any of them has ever said about shopping with me? of my coworkers saying "dr so and so was here yesterday, she looked around but wouldn't shop without you"? job politics suck.

happy easter by the way.
