I have been a long time computer tech, tv tech, tv installer, and more. Over the past few years I have noticed more, and more that customers are out for themselves, and will mow the technician over no matter what. When I get to a customers home I am not required to move their existing tvs, and such. For the most part my customers are very nice, and wouldn’t take advantage of me. They know that I am reasonable for my work, and I take pride in doing my job well.
I just recently received an escallation about a job I did. The escallation was that a tv I installed was not usable. When I left the customer signed off, and I demonstrated that everything worked to the best of my capability. The customer even gave me a tip. I moved her old tv to the garage, and even drove out to a store to get her cables because she didn’t have the right ones at the time of installation.
I am glad that I am not like a doctor. I don’t need to worry about things like protecting myself from lawsuits . I am thankful for this because the way people always want to get one over on someone would make it so that my insurance company would be calling me every few days.
Anyone that knows my wife knows that she tries to hard to fix everyones lives. She is constantly giving advice, and trying to counsel people that she knows. If she had any sort of training I would tell her to look into Psychiatric Aide jobs. Then again on the other hand we know someone that tried for something similar and it doesn’t seem to have panned out to us.
I don’t try to help anyone that I can’t give factual information to. I also don’t try to help anyone that doesn’t want the help, or anyone that wastes my time by doing what they want in the end.
Do you have anyone in your family that is like my wife?
