You may have perceived a marked decline in the frequency of posts here on AtomicToasters. Unfortunately, that’s another classic case of real life getting in the way of the online reality we all so greatly prefer. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that, even though I’m still in the automotive business, the rules are completely different. For most dealerships, and specifically the sales side, business dies down in the winter months, and especially in the weeks around Christmas. On our side, business ramps up in this time, as dealerships stock up for spring. So that means, in addition to trying to accomplish everything I would like to get done for the holidays, I also have a whole lot more work in my day job. While I hunt for a new place to live.
I hear people talking about how they enjoy the holidays, because their workplace slows down a whole lot, and everyone gets the opportunity to relax a bit at their job. I don’t think I’ve ever really experienced that.
In your day job, do you find yourself more relaxed, or more chaotic when the holidays hit?
