Sounds :fuckyeah: :sawce: !

We spent the day in. I ran to the supermarket before it closed at 2pm. We didn’t have a turkey but we had some of there fresh prepped prepared meals that you pop in the oven. We had meatloaf with mashed taters and green beans, chicken breast with pesto/basil sauce, zucchini spaghetti and some tomatoes, and then some mac&cheese. Some bundt cakes from a local place here that makes them so good, and then some pumpkin pie

It was just gf, daughter and myself so between me and GF we each had a small portion of everything and it was very filing.

Not a huge or traditional thanksgiving but definitely a great one as our first as a little family.

Hope everyone enjoyed theirs

I forget, in your new finance roll do you get a cut or percentage of each sale on top of your salary now?

I get a flat $35 bonus per car delivered through the store on top of my salary.

It ain't bad. But the level of bullshit I've been dealing with on a daily basis lately has me questioning a lot of things.

Ah yeah, I’m sure it adds up, but when you’re still establishing that role and setting boundaries and actual functions of your job I can see how it’d be a pain in the dick.

I'm wearing 3 hats at once right now and it's getting to not be worth the level of aggravation I've deal with daily. Coaching and managing salespeople, managing inventory and dealer trades, and doing the finance stuff as well.

Managing salespeople is like running a barrel of monkeys. They're 100% powered by ego, easily damaged, and very fragile if things don't go right. It's all compounded by the fact that the girl in the actual finance manager position is in over her head, is too cocky, is fucking lazy, and doesn't listen to a damned thing. And then I have my sales manager who I love but he's also lazy AF. Great closer, but terrible at the details.

Basically I just pick up pieces all day every day.

Sales was busy. We flurried on and off all morning and then it died.

I put the kibosh on $20 oil changes and free rotations this year. I fucking hate catering to people that are here for that and don’t want to buy shit, then leave.

People don’t come to car dealerships for deals on Black Friday.

Instead, I put out $299 remote starts until Monday, a $99 align/rotate special and a $99 oil/rotate/wiper. Big push was our 2 year maintenance plan that covers a major, a regular, and two basic services for $249 instead of 339. I put the money in retention.

We were down 70 hours and $13k in total sales over last year. We’ve been flat this month anyway, and thanksgiving is pretty late this year. It’s been a weird month.

Just got home. Longish drive from Arizona.

Had an AWESOME night in the casino last night. I won almost 1.5x the average annual salary in the US at one casino and recovered my losses and went well into the black.

Went smart on the last $60k of the winnings and asked for a session and got paid out in a check at the end. Biggest single win was $15,000 on a $100 machine.

This is going right to property taxes that are due next month and income taxes in April. Should just about cover the taxes for my other winnings this year. Damned taxes.
