So if you have read my bio, you already know that I travel all around the country for my job. To a lot of people, this might sound great. Growing up, I would imagine how cool it would be to travel like my big sisters. There's just one big difference... they were singing - I am freaking selling cars!!!!!!
Each week on the road is so hectic and stressful. I rush (sometimes missing flights) to the dealership to set up the sale on Monday. The rest of the week I work from about 8am to 9pm arguing with banks, talking to customers, and keeping our salesmen's heads straight. Staying in a hotel isn't as glamorous as it may sound either. Sometimes we don't get to stay in the nicest of places. Which brings me to one of my most unglamorous stories.....
A couple of weeks ago we were in Bloomington IN. We had a hard time finding a vacant hotel, so we settled with a pretty shady looking place. By about day three, I noticed that my beautiful french manicure was turning lavender. That night, after taking a bath I realized that my towels were also turning purple.
Omar and I googled it. One article popped up about meth - it leaves behind a purple residue when being "cooked." Some guys at the dealership then told us that the hotel had been a meeting place for big drug dealers and there had been some shootings there. Great!! I was bathing in meth! Like I said before... not a very glamorous life!
So, my question to you is : How glamorous or unglamorous is your job?
