Eel had been having a difficult time with his business. There was so much stress in every detail of the job and for that reason…Eel was having serious doubts. When employees had issues he would get angry with them and sulk the rest of the day in his office over it. When his co-owners made comments about his behavior and taking a few days off Eel decided that was the best thing to do. While off on vacation Eel realized that taking everything to heart in his business wasn’t going to help anyone. Getting angry at his staff only hurt their desire to work there. When he came back, Eel kept his emotions in check and his mind strictly on business.
