Sometimes people do not realize all the hard work that goes into selling this paper.

Sometimes you have to stand outside in the hot and cold weather. You have to work on your people skills to get to know people and build relationships with your customers. And you have to manage your stock, not buy more papers than you can sell, and work regularly enough for people to expect you.

This is why I think more organizations should get to know what we do and help us vendors with their independence and stability.
