work, numbers 

so these days i'm doing shipping work for an e-commerce startup re-selling sneakers. I handle around 400 pairs a day, with a range of prices from around 150€ to a staggering 14500€. When I asked, a coworker estimated the production cost of a pair to around 20€.

according to someone I overheard from my manager's videocall, as of last week the company achieved a turnover of 1 million.

i'm always uneasy with numbers but i find those particularly difficult to parse
