About 13k per business day if I can count fingers and toes.
Back when I still had youthful enthusiasm, we were working with all of the major nationals.
I came in the office one morning and my manager was really flustered trying to work the piles down on her desk. I offered to help so she gave me a stack.
I had run thru almost 50k worth of invoices for one client. Wow, I thought, maybe this is all worth the nervous breakdown afterall. I looked over at my manager who had started on a pile about 1/4th the size of the one she gave me.
"What's taking you so long slowpoke?" I asked. She looked at me and said "These aren't invoices. There are orders we haven't been paid for, have been shorted, or are still open on their end for pick a reason. Since I wasn't in the office that much I asked "For the year?"
"Nope. For the month".
There were many reasons we quit the carpet baggers, but that day sticks in my mind as the beginning of the end.
