perhaps there is some honor, but right now i am hard pressed to find any.
i haven't really been keeping up much in the past several months.
my husband and i have bought a pizzeria <something HE's always wanted to do,
so much for that masters in speech-language pathology>.
in the past 8 months, the things i have seen, have amazed me, not amused me.
from blatant rudeness, and lack of common sense, and the people that have
ripped us off <and those are just the employees>, i am far less optimistic
than i was last yr at this time.
i am told by other "professional" people that this is the kind of stuff they
see too. talking about accountants, and attorneys. their staff also seems to
have blatant disregard for authority.
lately i find it harder and harder to get real people to deal with issues.
mostly it's just that wonderful maze of voice mail.
the people at the bank, for instance, screw up things religiously, as with
our advertisers. i accept that people make mistakes, but then they seem
annoyed to have to correct them, and all the red tape, oy! i understand now,
what people mean when they say "i could go postal".
my point is, that e-mail is anonymous and moreover that seems to make people
feel that they can be ruder, and less considerate of other's feelings.
people have to deal with everyday stuff, and get online, and no longer feel
like being nice. so they just don't.
unfortunately, i think we just have to smile, and try to deal with this
stuff, it doesn't look like there'll be a change anytime soon...
