We are backed up on so much work at The Bookstore. Heavy, late shipments, and too many customers are taking their toll. We have no one to move all the books coming into the stockroom out to the floor because of all the customers out on the sales floor buying everything not nailed down. It’s a good problem to have but I do dread the other end of that. Every book sold means we’ll be getting it back in AND MORE. There are plenty of coworkers who are getting snagged left and right by customers to find books for them too. I’ve discovered that a leisurely pace is more productive than moving at breakneck speed. If you walk too fast, you know where you’re going, and if you know where you’re going you obviously work there.
