Selling an Area Rug and a 9 x 12 Persian Sarouk Carpet

It was Tuesday and relatively a quiet day. A young customer came in and bought a 5 x 8 area rug we had on display on sale and paid with his debit card. It took only a minute. Another lady walked in looking for a deal and a 5 x 8 area rug on sale. We only had one piece on sale with 50% off and many with regular price. She liked one piece but did not want to pay the regular price. She left without buying it.

A couple stopped by and after inspecting many pieces, bought a 9 x 12 Ivory Persian Sarouk. They asked about our return policy. It is a 30-day money back guarantee with no-questions asked if the rug is in the same condition as they bought. The husband was not willing to buy anything, but luckily, the wife liked the piece and could impose her ideas on the husband. They paid with a credit card and left. It is good that God has created women!! Otherwise, businesses could go bankrupt! We men, would like to postpone buying forever!

Everything else was normal. Paying bills, checking and responding to some e-mails. I did not feel like staying late. I went home at 5:30 pm. I had started work at 8:10 am.
