Customer Service

I don’t want to cast aspersions on all customer service people; I have run into some who are actually quite good. But I have too many times run into people who don’t seem to know what “customer service” even means. I believe the problem starts with companies who want to say that they take care . . . → Read More: Customer Service

Common decency is common decency

I am learning, though slowly. Someone who doesn’t really know me accused me of being negative on social media the other day. I thought about it for a bit, and then unfriended her. It was a political post I commented on, and frankly, right now, I see very little to be positive about in politics.

Lesson learned

I made a mistake yesterday that cost me a couple hundred dollars – oops! The tire pressure light went on in my car the night before, so I planned on calling the mechanic yesterday. I checked the tires both that night and yesterday morning, and could find nothing wrong with any of them. So I . . . → Read More: Lesson learned

Letting go

I am doing the best I can, and sometimes I feel that’s not very good. I persevere, because it’s either that or give up, and I don’t think I am a quitter.

That does bring up another issue, however. Sometimes is is smarter to let go than to hang on. I used to think that . . . → Read More: Letting go

We are all the same

We are all one! Please don’t let someone tell you it is us against them. We are all in this together, and we will sink or swim together.

Think about it – if the only way for someone to win is to get us to turn against each other, then has he really won?

We . . . → Read More: We are all the same

I am tired of political ads

I have to admit that I am getting very tired of all these political ads, from all sides. I have said this before; I notice that others are saying it also. Perhaps we need to change to a system where one is not allowed to speak of what their opponent is going to do, but . . . → Read More: I am tired of political ads

Please vote

I really wish that everyone felt their voice counted and would vote. I understand why some people don’t feel this way. I understand that there are people out there who feel that winning is the only object, and don’t care if they have to lie, cheat, or steal votes to win. And the only way . . . → Read More: Please vote

Decisions Decisions

What do you do when you have decisions to make? I seem to have a bit of “analysis paralysis.” I would advise a friend to “listen to your gut” if they were in my position, and yet I feel like so much is going on right now that I can’t figure out what my gut . . . → Read More: Decisions Decisions

Writing

I belong to a writing group that really floats my boat. It is all women (not that there is anything wrong with men, but it feels good and safe just the way it is), and we generally meet once a month. We don’t all make it every time, and that’s okay – life continues to . . . → Read More: Writing

I am doing the best that I can

I often feel that I am just not living up to what I should be living up to. I feel like I “should” be doing this, or I “should” be doing that. Maybe the issue is that I really don’t know what it is that I am supposed to be living up to. Or maybe . . . → Read More: I am doing the best that I can
