My father was a jeweler. He had an office in the Swissair building on 5th Avenue in Manhattan...not far from Tiffanies. He used to joke that they were his competition. I used to help him as a kid and also when I was older with various things such as his computers.Hi You Guys ,
So I now got a customer that bought a laser on the 20th +- last month. Laser was shipped but due to holidays here, the pack is being delayed.
Code is showing up on the post office website , but it is stack for a few days. Again becuase of our holiday here called Sukkot.
I explained that to him ... several times.
Now he says I am a liar and that he will tell it here on the forums. So I told him he can do that. As I can not change or rush the situation. Wish I could.
Just felt like I sharing it with you all. I am tired of getting those threats all the time. I am working hard on these builds. Never stole a dine from someone ... and this is what I get back in exchange from people.
I watched and listened to him deal with clients, usually women, and when he was on the phone. I often thought to myself that there is absolutely no way I could ever sell anything let alone work women (the less said the better:eg all day.
The nit picking, complaining, would definitely drive me nuts. When I discussed this or my reaction to some of his more aggravating customers he would always reply, "the customer is always right." Of course this is not true. However, he maintained this attitude as a way of dealing with what to me seemed like insane requests or complaints. It is just part of the deal, what one has to deal with in sales or dealing with the public.
It is ironic that I told my father there is no way I would follow him in his jewelry business and went into medicine. You not only have to deal with the public but are to a certain degree responsible for a patient's health. Illness, and pain in particular can turn an other wise normal individual into an angry, frustrated individual who will turn on you! Again, it is just part of the deal, what one has to deal with to be in the profession.
Everyone has heard the expression, "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." One thing that is helpful is not to personalize (yes its is not easy) complaints that are not well founded. One has to be secure in one's own confidence that he is doing whatever job he is doing well. Sometimes that is all one can do.
