Hmmm...while your thread strikes a few nerves...I would like to say that IMO, it seems ike people gave up a long time ago. No hopes, dreams,
aspirations...nothing...a bunch of nothingness...even though many continue to aspire..however, the masses died along time ago.
At the same time I would also like to point out that as I am more of an introvert (very sensitive to the feelings of those nearby) I choose to keep to
myself this way due to feeling uncomfortable around others since I was a child (I am now a mom of four, 3 in college and in my 40's), I have always
felt the human disconnect and have been a witness to it getting worse by the day as have many others. This feeling has never been absent, but to
reiterate your post, it does seem to be ever more prominent.
I had it out with AT&T on cyber monday about a phone I purchsed for $0.99. I had not received my phone (as stated in 2 business days) until yesterday
and after arguing with the various departments at AT&T, I was told we are out of that phone...We are the store not online sales, I can't help you...we
will just cancel the order and you can reorder it, etc !
I told AT&T after being a wireless customer for over 12 years, I would appreciate it if they would honor my purchase instead of trying to boost sales
and ultimately appease their investors. That seems like it struck a nerve in someones brain as I finally received my phone today.
I speak of this situation only to display in agreement with what you are speaking about because after all the channels I was put through I had to
asked to speak with the CEO of the company just to make things right. I even told the 6 supervisors I spoke with that I thought I was being scammed
and that AT&T was running a scam only to boost sales. I told them that I had recorded every conversation I had with them (and I did) and that if they
didn't honor their own promotion I would make sure that millions of people knew about it.
Ultimately, they did send me the phone for $0.99 and everything is okay. But jeesh...what an ordeal I had to go through just to buy what thy,t AT&T
promoted. America and the world is so disconnected...it's sad...it's pathetic and it's unacceptable. This was just another display of severe
disconnect. I was always taught to honor your word as your word is bond...unfortunately, not every entity believes this.
I hope we can change...I hope we are willing to change.
