I admit, I've never even seen any of their advertising but I'm a super loyal customer and advocate of their stores. Tell me more. If they suck as a client, that's awful. Their brand is ripe with all kinds of potential.

@huge 1 I’m an Aldi loyalist who has done significant Wikipedia reading. Haha They came to Richmond last year and now I’m addicted. Being in NYC has given me withdrawals.

All, I feel like I might have legitimate focus problems. Could use some advice - I’ve been making focus-based mistakes every day. Most are typos. For others, an example might be the partner saying , “we haven’t received these items beside those I highlighted”, to which I will respond “luckily we actually received all the ones you highlighted” (Including 10 attachments, since I didn’t see the word “beside”). Any tips? Does this seem indicative of a problem or is it normal as a junior?
