The important annual convention was in Sin City this year, so I had to attend! I have only been to America’s Playground once before, and I had the time of our life.
I do not have the world’s most exciting job – I sell mattresses and beds.
Mattress salespeople are the modern day version of used car dealers, hustling to make every sale. This year’s convention was of particular importance, because it was based around fighting back against online sales. I lose a lot of our sales to online vendors, and it’s easily chopping into our bottom line, so I thought I could learn a few things. If I’m being honest, the main reasons I was gleeful were for legal cannabis and gambling, then both gambling and cannabis are illegal in our state, so this convention would be a prime option to chop loose and have fun. All of the major conference meetings were held in the day and early day, and as soon as they wrapped for the day I went straight to the nearest cannabis dispensary. In Sin City there are literally dozens of marijuana stores, so I didn’t have to look entirely taxing to find 1. After spending an hour in our room drinking whiskey and smoking Purple Haze cannabis, I would hit the casino floor and gamble for a few hours. Then I would retire to our hotel room and smoke more cannabis, to help myself and others forget about all the money I lost, on our last day there I was so deep in the hole I couldn’t even afford a final trip to the cannabis dispensary.
