Buyers Agent

Can I just walk away and find a new one? I am not happy with this one.

Iím sorry.
I think that I get personal and/or sick days for a reason. If I need or want to take one, thatís my choice. And itís not my job to find a sub or worry about the secretary not finding one....

Youíre probably right - I only work with 50-60 kids a day versus others with 125-175! It probably is easier for me, because I have a specific group I work with that has lower numbers!

Math - Does This Exist?
