March Mins

0630 The smell of percolating coffee is my signal to get up and get my day in gear.

0730 After viewing about one half-hour of my favorite news channel, I make my way in to the office to do my part as a Team March member.

0807 My first calls start pouring in, leaving me with little time to prepare my paperwork for the busy day we expect to have. It is always crazy around here during holiday weekends.

0920 A steady flow of customers keep coming in. The majority of them are getting equipment such as trailers and camping gear for the long weekend. Man, they are going like hotcakes!

1100 Finally, a momentary lull in activities! Before it picks back up, better head down to the RV storage to take inventory and update the daily paperwork.

1130 As expected, the activities pick up again. We must have some knockout deals here because patrons are requesting reservations for future dates! Look out retail rental centers, March MWR is taking over the market!

1300 Lunch time! A little me time to relax and watch TV in the break area.

1400 Lunch is over and I am greeted by a line of customers waiting to check out some gear.

1430 The line has reduced a bit, but the customers continue to wait patiently. We have some of the best patrons around!

1500 Inventory is getting low, but we are still able to accommodate everyone’s wishes; even the ones who wait until the last minute to show up…(laughing out loud)

1630 Perfect timing; got our last customer all checked out and on his way. Now it’s closing time.

1700 I’m off! Can’t wait to go home and play with the grandkids here to visit today. I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!
