Around 8:15 all my colleagues start to arrive. There is already a line forming in front of the coffee machine, I queue up as well. Around 8:30 everyone has settled behind their desk, and we are ready to start the day. Some have already started calling customers. But not us, today we begin with a stock meeting. What products are interesting to sell? What products do we have in stock? Prices are discussed, so that all of us are aware of the important products for that day.
