How does one go about doing this? How can I demand respect without being unkind? There is a customer service situation I’ve been dealing with since October. I’ve been doing the normal thing of being diplomatic, strong, but not immature or insulting. So far… I haven’t gotten what I need (which is a refund, by the way). So I sent one more email today and if it isn’t resolved next week I am going to the Better Business Beaureau and I’m going to have to try to be diplomatic there too. I’m just sick and tired of all of this politeness! Is that silly? I’m sick of saying something like “I await your prompt response,” instead of “Get back to me or I’ll throw a fit, you bloody trolls!!!”
Am I the only person who gets tired out by being appropriate? Goodness gracious, I’m just trying to be a good follower of Yeshua here. but right now all I want to do is punch a wall. Don’t worry–I’m too scared of hurting myself ;). All the same, why is it that I tire of doing good when I should not ever grow weary of such things? I want to hold on to self-control and mildness… but inside I’m bubbling over. Is this a sign of being hypocritical? “My outsides not matching my insides” or something?
I want respect. Don’t make me get all Aretha Franklin on you.
