Anya: Oh, yeah? What’s the good news?
Clint: My company has had a Banner month. Since we Launched our new Line of software, we’re having trouble Keeping up with demand. Every product is Flying off the shelves.
Anya: Wow, that’s great news. Everybody I talk to is Singing a different tune. Foot traffic is down and business is slow – really slow.
