    I guess I am old but I find this puzzling

    I guess being a business owner this subject gets under my skin at times. The saying “the customer is always right” is so wrong. I sometimes wish we could review customers the way they can review us. I would be checking that site daily. :) Side note: Did you guys know there’s a site called...

    I guess I am old but I find this puzzling

    I get where you are going with this, but if look at McDonald’s reviews in various areas below 3 stars is the norm. It’s McDonald’s for Christmas’ sake! Why do people even bother? Basically what you’re saying to me is it should be nothing but 5 and 1 star reviews. But what determines that 5...

    I guess I am old but I find this puzzling

    As a business owner, I sometimes wished they did. My reviews are good, but people don’t care that you have a 4.5 star rating. They look to see what’s bad. I had someone make a scene at my facility because I wouldn’t give her what she wanted outside the policy agreed upon. I take it back. I...

    People are so quick to bash a company online and rarely leave compliments. Negative reviews are simply a part of the world we live in.

    O.T. Firing a Client... (long post warning)

    Give a warning first. I’ve gotten rid of clients, but unless what they did was out & out wrong, I always gave a warning first.

    Pearl what is up with them lately ?

    I don’t play Pearl, but I know a couple of those guys really well. Good people and I agree that they really care about their clients. I also see you are exactly the type of player they work towards to satisfy. They had you setup for each need you had in your playing life.

    How do the pros do this?

    Being moved is key. In case of my friend and Lynyrd Skynyrd, he had a riser with wheels. It was easy for the local crew push it around for them and not disturb the kit.

    How do the pros do this?

    My friend was Lynyrd Skynyrd’s drum tech for years. He got it perfect every time and their drummer never sound checked, he did.

    Pearl what is up with them lately ?

    What Pearl did great: 1. Had a great a entry level kit in the 80’s in the Export when they were extremely visible (OCDP should have learned from them but were too late for their peak) 2. Jumped on the custom market to make the younger kids drool and want to play them and keep the older &...

    Dropped Facebook

    I’m okay with that. They need to be responsible for what they are saying.

    Dropped Facebook

    I think it started out badly; everyone with their fake names and no consequence for their behavior. At least with Facebook, whatever it is someone says does have them even if it’s just personal reputation.

    Dropped Facebook

    I can understand why people don’t like it, but it’s gotten me back in touch with a lot of people who I would have always thought, “I wonder what happened to him/her”. Facebook just lead to me organizing a high school swim team reunion where even the coach came. It was a great time.
