Thin Ice

The Colonel is on thin ice and doesn't know it.

As many of you may remember, the Colonel is our senior sales rep. He is probably the absolutely worst salesperson on the face of the earth. It's about 10am here right now and he's made 2 calls. Yesterday, he made several. One person called back and he pranced around the office talking about how he got "a live one."

He sent the "live one" his "little package." I know. Don't get me started on the package.

So, why is he on thin ice? Our Big Cheese called me today and wanted to know if the Colonel had been on the phone today. At that point, I said he hadn't (the 2 calls were after this).

Big Cheese said we might just see him at the end of the month.

Yikes!

Oh yuck! I hate being put in that kind of posistion.

We have a guy here that has to pull down some serious numbers in the next two months or he's gone. Makes me very nervous for him.

Uh oh. It's no fun being the watchdog, nor to be under the extra scrutiny in your office!

I wouldn't won't to be the Colonel when the Big Cheese waltzes in and the "poop hits the fan."

So now the question is: Do you tell the Colonel or not? You are in an unenviable position!
