During my lunch, I had to go pick up some things, and I met Chris at Sonic for lunch. He got there before me, and while chatting with him on the cellie, he said, "Hey, I found a nickel and a penny next to my car." I proceeded to tell him that since I was probably going to go home and crash, due to lack of sleep, he had to leave the patio for me. He responded with, "Hey, I just found a quarter." I responded by hanging up on him!
Thankfully I found a 1980 dime under one of the benches in the patio, giving me a find for the day, and stopping Chris from getting the Sonic Change Cycle.
I finished Confessions of a Street Addict by Jim Cramer. It was a very good read, and I really enjoyed it. He did an excellent job of showing what the life of a hedge fund director was like, and what it was like to bring a company through an IPO during the late 90's. My only problem is that I felt that I was in Cramer OVERLOAD while I was reading this book, since I normally watch his TV Show, Mad Money, everynight and I listen to his radio show, Real Money, on my iPod while I'm jogging.
My new book is curtsey of Chris, Hard Sell by Jamie Reidy. He read it about 2 weeks ago and said that I had to read it, so he let me borrow it. It is about a guy who is a Pfizer sales rep and mainly his tales of trying to get out of as much work as possible, something I can truly admire. What is interesting is that he was a rep in South Bend, Indiana, which is where one of my best friends works in pharmaceutical sales for competitor of Pfizer. It is very funny, and a VERY easy read. It is only about 1210 pages long, and even though I started the book on Friday afternoon, I am already on page 120! And even though the subtitle of the book is The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman, he has yet to even mention Viagra, let alone detail stories of how he sold it!
