Business 101

Now, I don’t know much about business. I’ve never taken any business classes. But one thing I do know about business, you have to make a profit. To make profit, you have to have some kind of service or product that people want to give you money for. And when you sell this service or product, you have to sell it for more than you obtained or spent on it to make a profit. To stay in business, you must make a profit or get a billion dollar bailout from the government.

Now this seems pretty self explanatory. I imagine this is something you would learn on day one of Business 101. Which brings us to my story. Remember back when I talked about how stupid my co-workers are? Apparently, this concept has not penetrated their thick skulls.

So, there I am sitting at my desk, minding my own business. When I hear Co-worker X tell Co-Worker Z that he just sold a part above cost! At first, I’m like big deal. Isn’t that the point? So I did some digging, and found, lo and behold, he didn’t sell it above cost. Surprise surprise. I mean, we can’t actually expect to make money off our customers, right?
