Ingenuity and working the system is American spirit of rising to the top using your head not your back?Had a out of state Maine real estate buyer with crutches, braces, slings and neck collar struggle in to the office. Explain about his three court case settlements. How he was going to spend them on some Maine real estate.
As a broker, should be happy to help a customer right?
Not so cranked on this one as he explains he will be healthy again after the settlements for lawsuits now underway.
And that is why the academy performance for pain and suffering until the settlement arrives.
Have to wonder, what this guy who sues for a living is going to do to the owner.
The seller of the property he picks to maybe purchase with that settlement award if he gets them from a sympathetic hand picked jury.
The visit made me think about folks that threaten to complain on line and to companies for so called mistakes made.
And what are you going to do about it before they go public? With all day long free time from not working. And this, this and this disability income freeing them up to work the system 24/7.There should be consequences and chances to correct mistakes made in business, in life. But if the disability is lazy, you may have been born with it. Not able to pin it on a business, others for happening, developing to full blown scale.
But what about the guy or gal trying to get 20% off their next sea cruise squawks? His or her negative crows about how upset they are about this, this and this blown way out of proportion.
To gain attention, help them get a discount or free this, or upgrade on that from customer relations?
When they are not so hot under the collar in reality but just doing anything under the sun to cause a fuss, stir and get the deal.
May not look pretty, or something to be proud of with the kids watching but that is where the next generation shows the young un's this is how you do it. Watch and learn.
Get that cheaper, this for less money by protesting way way too much.
But the frivolous law suit for coffee too hot that the customer spilled heading out on to the street after a drive through stop is a simple business decision to be made.
Pay a little claim, cut the check and forget whether the truth is known or not on the who, what and where. Doesn't matter, no time, get rid of him. Move on.
Cheaper than the franchise being tied up in the courthouse, on the legal circuit docket of upcoming cases to hear, try the case.
What says you?
See folks complaining with the zeal of an actor or actress after a golden globe, oscar, emmy that freely admits off camera, away from the mic or spotlight, that don't worry, I'll be all better after I get my discount, my court settlement and grins. Maine, simple living and folks work for that paycheck with honest effort and world famous work ethic.
