Monday I got to my area, found a good house, talked to the owner, sold her a system; found another house, sold them a system; and then called a call-back and then sold another system. Good day. I hadn't gotten a three-day since the summer of 2003 in East New York, Brooklyn.
So then Tuesday I worked and worked and worked and worked and worked and found no one. It's amazing how the exact same amount of effort can yield such different results. There is something truly depressing about working a grueling job talking to rude people all day and actually losing money while doing it. (Snacks cost money y'know.)
Today I was about to blank again, but toward the evening I stumbled across a family that was already about to buy a system from ADT. The ADT rep that came by on Monday quoted them $700+ for the system. Today I showed up and gave them a superior system for 99 bucks. I love my job.
