Two things: having worked retail, I can tell you that generally, retail workers (good ones, at least) prefer to have clothes left in the fitting rooms instead of misplaced or mishung or misfolded. It is much easier to simply hang the clothes per store standards and replace them yourself - that is, after all, what we were paid for.

On top of that, writing a letter advising the corporate headquarters of the situation is not asking for a handout, it's asking for them to rectify the situation, and to prevent something similar from happening to future customers. I try and make a point to write letters or make phone calls if service or a product is inferior. Sometimes it results in free things, other times it doesn't. At a restaurant, I always make sure to pay my bill before I mention that my meal was inadequate, unless it was bad enough that it needed to be sent back.

Furthermore, while there may be no duty to treat people as innocent until proven guilty in retail, good customer service will dictate that people are treated respectfully until proven wrong. Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time explaining this to Dish Network, who treated me very poorly. I wasn't looking for a handout, I was hoping that they wouldn't treat future customers that way. In a situation like Ruskie's, I personally would have pointed out that they work in a customer oriented business, and that they need to keep that in mind. I don't have a problem speaking my mind in situations like that, and I wish other people would more often as well. If people remembered that they are being paid to serve other people, we all might be happier with our interactions with them.

1. gaily, that's why i don't have a dad.
2. too much ear pain.

3. hello everyone. i've been busy.
4. my ex is back from iraq, and that has thrown a wrench into my casually positively progressing relationship with jex.
5. plus two maid of honor honors in the next six months. one involves a $183 trip to the virgin islands (everything else is paid for by the family of the bride).
5. also, the teaching and tutoring for kaplan thing is really time consuming since i'm doing all the prepping for the first time.

6. basically, all of my free time at work is spent getting ready for kaplan stuff or talking to aforementioned ex on IM.
7. bad ekc, bad.

If anyone's still reading this thread, I just wanted to update you. I have finished Kaplan training, and it was pretty hard. I was in a class of four people, 2 had already dropped, one chose to wait until the next session, and one of my four was eventually dropped for being unprepared.

All in all i enjoyed the training period. The people at this branch are very friendly and professional. I begin tutoring this week, and my first class starts September 11th and runs through the end of November as a weekly class, which is good because it will make the preparation process easier.

If anyone has questions about anything like this, feel free to email me. And if you're considering signing up to become a tutor, let me know, because if you mention my name (and pass the training period) I get a $100 bonus, and I'll definitely split it with you.

i think most people would agree that it is unfair to reserve those positions for graduates of top ten law schools, especially considering how many brilliant people go to lesser ranked schools because of scholarship issues.

apart from that, i just wanted to add that the brennan family is a great family - although i don't know tom sr. personally, my brother is best friends with his grandson, and our families are close.
