I have a massive headache. Why? Because I spent most of my day so angry at a company that my head hurts. I’m not one who typically “asks for a manager” (although lately I have been better at standing up for myself and asking for one if needed), I try to be understanding and I try my best to put myself in other people’s shoes. I have worked at a telemarketing job and as a tech support rep for Vivint, so I most definitely understand both sides of a dispute with a company, and I try to be reasonable and fair. But goodness, I am so angry! Anyway, I wont go into details but it has to do with a clinic I took Molly to, which explains this sweet picture of Molly.
All I want to say is that I can’t stand it when your just trying to be a good person, who cares about something (in this case my dog getting the care she needs) and you get to deal with the people who will try to use the care you have and manipulate it.
Unfortunately, this happens a lot in our world. I like to assume that everyone means well and it really sucks when they actually don’t. And with that, I am presented with 2 choices:
- I could let this situation harden me and never trust anyone ever again. I would then assume the whole world is full of people who just care about themselves and how much money they are going to make.
- I could understand that there are definitely imperfect people in this world, and that some will do wrong things. But just because I have bad experiences with one, two, or even 20 or 30 people does not mean I should stop caring for others.
Of course I need to learn from the situation. We always forgive, but God doesn’t ask us to necessarily trust that person again or to not take precautions next time. But we do need to still always be kind, respectful, honest, and when needed professional and blunt.
