I love my new job. LOOOOVE it. It's super fun and exciting and I get to meet tons of people and go to places I normally would never visit (Birmingham anyone?).
But I do not like the part when I go to the trouble of building relationships, getting to know someone, working on a deal with them, and then not being able to give them my business.
I know, I know, it is my job to get a bunch of bids, work a deal, and then only pick one of them. But it sucks for the losers, and for me to have to explain why they are losers. It makes me feel bad for them and in turn ruins my mojo.
Hopes and dreams crushed for the day? Check. Time to go home.
