Customer service is on the decline. Don't believe me? Just ask my sister Sarah about her latest experience at the Superfresh grocery store...she'll tell ya all sorts of good stuff. What's more disturbing is the total lack of respect I'm discovering in the blog world. Not only do I have to get treated with little respect in the "real" world, but now I'm getting smacked around in the cyber world too. Want examples? You got it.
1. Twice now I've been hit up on my comments page with people either wanting me to vote for them to win a contest or to promote their new website about teaching non-LDS people about our church via second rate cartoons. Seriously? It used to be that I only had to tell 17 year old boys that I wouldn't help them win a trip to tour Europe as they stood at my door trying to sell magazines, now I have to tell they lady trying to win a trip to the east coast to visit a blogger friend she's never met in real life that if she wants me to vote for her, she needs to step it up a bit and at least comment on the story I've told first.
2. I can appreciate people making their blogs private, but man, why do the ones that bring me the most comical enjoyment have to do it without warning. I found a blog one time with the rantings of a crazy lady and her friends were just as nuts and I used to spend Tatiana nap time just bouncing all over the place cracking up at these yahoos. Now I'm stuck with my normal friends...no offense my loves. It's like going back to a store you've spent a lot of money in and they're all the sudden closed with no warning at all...poor customer service to say the least.
I could come up with more, but I'm too busy being annoyed with the two examples I've already come up with. Anyone else want to come up with one?
