How bitter is this poor chap? On a recent walk, I came across several of these signs and realized that an unhappy customer is likely to take matters, literally, to the streets. Apparently this individual was so bitter about poor craftsmanship that he took it upon himself to print up signage on his computer and attach it to the offending advertisements that are found in what could only be viewed as a sleepy, suburban town. Additionally, he used scissors to cut out the painter’s phone number, a guarantee that no one else would suffer an over-sprayed chimney.
No matter what one does for a living or who one does it for, customer service is key. As I was taught by my dear old mum, treat everyone as you would like to be treated and you won’t have a problem. Facebook, Twitter, Google and more allow for anyone and everyone to be a critic so you must always be putting your best paw forward and conducting yourself as if you are up for top prize at the Westminster Dog Show. And if that’s not enough of a threat, remember that there is a disgruntled gent who is traveling the area with a staple gun and a sharp object. And you thought dogs were dangerous.
