Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due
All the "associates" I work with at Pencils appear to be decent, honest, hard-working people. Which makes it difficult for me to figure out who has the substance abuse problem, who is on anti-depressants or who is a potential homicidal maniac. James, the dreadlocked inventory manager, always seems to have a smile on his face. I know his job can't make him that happy. Tom, another associate, works 3 part-time jobs hoping to save enough money to buy a house. He gets by on 4 hours of sleep a night. William, who works in electronics, is also studying Business Administration at the local community college. Once he gets his degree, he's "out of here." Everyone seems to have a Plan B, which is smart. I'm thinking the CEO of Pencils needs to go on the CBS show, "Undercover Boss."
