So I was out and about today doing some of those things that you just have to do during the month and of course since it’s December it was hectic. My question is, when did polite and knowledgeable customer service become an endangered animal? I won’t say extinct because I did have one fabulous service experience but for the rest of the rest of the day I wanted to bang my head against the walls.
Ok, dentist office first – because of a traffic accident this morning everyone arrived at their office 30-45 minutes late. They didn’t bother to call their morning appointments to let them know they were running behind schedule, nor did they tell us when we came in for our appointment. We only found out about it when we asked, after waiting for 20 minutes past the appointment time – umm hello?
I would also like to implore the owners of Costco, Sam’s club and other warehouse stores, how about Home Depot, Walmart, and Lowes – to put turn signals on their carts – geesh you would think you were trying to live in a circus just trying to navigate. Wait scratch that, we can’t get folks to use their turn signals on their cars, why would they use them on shopping carts?
And while we’re on the subject of driving – who in their right mind decides to drive a wide-load truck, straddles two lanes to do it and does it during rush hour traffic – someone smack that guy.
Of course I also met up today with someone driving a bulldozer, at top speed, on my little road – in the frigging middle of the road around a curve – did I mention it turns out it was a county worker – I learned that after slamming on my brakes to avoid above head on collision to continue on to meet the dumptruck with the county emblem on the side also driving down the middle of the road at high speed. Lovely.
