If you can remain calm, you just don’t have all the facts.
(Okay – first – I found my way back to the English language. Which is quite helpful.)
Alan really likes his job. He has sold 5 units already! In 2&1/2 weeks! Which actually isn’t good if you’ve been at it awhile, but really good for a newbie. He’s really happy with what he’s doing. (really really really – geez, is that the only word I know???) How do I like it?? Maybe not so much. Here is the problem …. when hired he was told he’d be salaried for the first couple months ’til he was up and running. Of course he didn’t get that in writing! In fact, when I asked how much that salary would be he couldn’t give me a number. Sometimes he makes me crazy, but that’s a whole different blog! Well, turns out he was misinformed – by the finance manager, who got fired a couple days ago. Hmmm. No, he’s straight commission. N–ice. He doesn’t even know what commission will be on the units he’s sold…. the total isn’t done until the sale is completely done (it’s all based on how much $$ is actually made on the deal, etc.) So, our pay for next month could be – I have no idea. Maybe not even enough to pay our mortgage. Alan is completely okay with this… he’s just trusting God. Which is awesome, really…but me, I am freaking out!! Pray for me! Because I have a major tummy-ache.
