Good news for girls

hope for girlsWith all the doom and gloom around, there must be enormous hope and inspiration for girls at the sight of this picture of two of our leaders  – both women.

UK Prime Minister Teresa May and Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

And this is now nothing unusual!  That’s got to be good.

Standard business practice?

dvd playerI bought a cheap DVD player recently but as it did not display properly (images were stretched sideways so people appear short and fat) I put a negative review on Amazon.

I was contacted by a sales operative who asked me if I would remove it if she replaced the player.  A replacement was sent but it still displayed the same – obviously, the fault is inbuilt into the machine – as I told her.

She then said she would refund the payment, pleading with me to remove the negative review saying “I am a single mother, I need to raise my kids. This job is really important to me. It is the end of the month, I have to pass my Work Performance Evaluation of this month to keep my job”  So I agreed.

But what sort of a company is it which holds its sales staff responsible for the poor quality of its rubbish goods?
