Right now Quickbooks is on transaction number 9999. I'm going to roll 10,000 at any moment now. That includes some noise, such as replacement shipments that went out for free – but it is close enough to the actual number of shipments to be an official milestone. A lot closer than Sunshop’s 10,270 tally, anyway.
It took nearly eight years (from November 21, 2005) to hit 10,000. Amazon undoubtedly does that many sales on a slow day -- hell, for all I know they make 10,000 sales in an hour. But I processed and shipped every single one of those sales myself, so that’s cause for celebration. Won't you join me?
Yay! Whee! Oboy!
OK, celebration’s over. Back to work.
