The Boss-Man: We're only $10,000 away from our dinner goal!
Me: Oh, yes. I saw that. I think we'll have no problem reaching it before the dinner (in late October).
The Boss-Man: Yes, I'd really like to reach it today. Can you figure out a way to do that? It'd be great. Thanks.
So today's goal is to get some company to give us $10,000. Problem is, we've already contacted everyone, and they're obviously avoiding our calls. Annnnd, if they talk to anyone, it ain't gonna be me. Ugh. Why oh why did I think that this is what I wanted to do with my life?!?
