CosPain #64: Fakeout
When you're in sales mode, you live and die a little with every person who walks up to your table.  Every sale feels like a validation, while every person who walks away is a tiny disappointment.  At least that's the case for me.  Maybe other people can take this stuff less personally.

Then, there's the moment described in this comic: when you sense someone approaching the table, go into your normal sales pitch, and realize it's your fellow tabler, returned from some excursion away from their station.  It's jarring and a little disheartening for some reason when that realization occurs.
