I read the post about the CEO who fired anyone who had an Obama bumper sticker on their car and I think I've found a solution if you agree with "Mr." CEO.......Or you just HATE a certain segment of our society .... or you just think YOU KNOW what's best for the world......
Maybe this could help stop all the HATE that is spread on lot of Internet Forums..................and reduce your stress level.............
Seems quite a few 'bidness owners here just HATE a certain part of the people in their world. Some are next door neighbors, some are co-workers, some are your clergy, customers and some.... yes... SOME are members of YOUR family.
Besides, if YOU are not "WITH ME", I certainly wouldn't want to call your company out to my home.
So, I'll be the strawman for you...............................
All you small business owners out there, why don't you start screening all your calls??. If someone isn't on "YOUR" team, just refuse service to them. If they are not "WITH" you then they are "AGAINST" you, right?
YOU have the "RIGHT" to work for who YOU choose, right????
Why don't you just post it in those big'ol Yellow Page ads you're paying for??
Aren't you just perpetuating a charade when you go out and perform your service or sell to these people who don't believe in the same political or religous ideals as YOU??
Don't you go out into the field, smile, act nice, get THEIR money then come here, at night, to post what "SCUMBAGS" they are???
No?? Wheel what is 99% of what's posted in this ARP section if it's not YOU BLASTING THEM? No wonder you're all stressed out with having to be nice to do business with "those" people, you know, the ones that didn't vote for YOUR candidate or the ones the don't go to YOUR church or even, OH NO !!!, don't believe in YOUR Jesus or God.
Why don't you just refuse to do 'bidness with them???????
You mean you'll lower yourself to the level to take their money while you secretly HATE them to pieces?? No WONDER the HATE SPEECH flies like an Eagle on certain "Internet Forums".
How do you compensate yourself for having to work for "those" "scumbag" whatchamacallits when they call YOU for service????
With the level of hate that's spewed forth there MUST be some method you use to relieve the stress from having to perform work for 'those' people.
How can you take THEIR money and have it stink up your service truck??
WHose BUMPER STICKER do you have on the bumper of your truck? Do you PROUDLY PROCLAIM your poltical convictions by having that bumber sticker on the front as well as the back bumper and even on the back window???
Anyway, why don't you simply screen your calls and advertise your political inclinations along WITH your religious convictions ??
You could claim to ABSOLUTELY NOT work for ANYONE that isn't of your religion.... even though there's a multitude of variations of the "Christian" religion which the majority of you claim to behold.
You wouldn't want to do work for those that don't agree with YOUR beliefs, would you?
It's YOUR company, you're "MR" CEO so why aren't you making easier on yourself (and everyone else) by avoiding (at all cost) those 'undesireable' people that voted for "WhoEverTheHeck" whom YOU didn't agree with and wish would drop dead from a heart attack ??
Heck, as sure as YOU are that YOU are endowed with the one and the ONLY "correct" way to live your life that you've been blessed with excess money, fame and fortune. SO just say "SCREW'EM", "I'm" not doing any buisiness with those "Insert Derogatory Name" here. (Usually "Scumbag ... something something or something something Scumbag)
Hey, YOU are "Mr" Bigg aren't you? You can come on an Internet Forum and blast people to your hearts content, why don't you follow thru with it?
Just tell that customer who said he voted for "Candidate A" or "Candidate B" that he's a "something something Scumbag" and to call another company??
Heck YOU could contribute to the SEPERATION by taking notes about who is what in the trade and even REFER those folks to the folks like them.
After all YOU know THOSE folks are the REAL A** %#% SCUMBAGS so let thtme do work for the REAL A** %#% SCUMBAGS.
What??? That's rediculous??? Nope, not at all. Anyone who thinks "Mr" CEO is right owes it to himself to not do ANYTHING for those "OTHER" folks that "VOTED" for whomever YOU don't like.
If THEY are so 'bad', wouldn't THEIR money stink up your wallet?Aren't you going against YOUR OWN "grain" by going out everyday and making them "comfortable" via your products and services.
Come on, stand up for what you believe in and do it in your everyday life. Not out on some Internet forum. Where's your commitment, where's your conviction to damn those, in any way you can, who dare to disagree with YOUR righteous political ideas? If you really believe in all the HATE you spew then prove it and take it in the pocketbook like the REAL man you THINK you are.
Until then, YOU are just another working stiff trying to make a living who NEEDS people of ALL types, all varieties, ALL political persuasions to make your business (OR JOB) successful.
Fact is... when YOU quit beliving that is when YOUR business (OR JOB) starts the death spiral.
So aren't you a little TWO-FACED to work/sell to 'those' people during the day and then come on this forum at night spewing HATE for them?
Maybe a LOT TWO-FACED is more like it.
Doesn't that mean you can be easily bought? After all, what are we talking about? A service call here, a sale there. You can do without THAT to uphold YOUR values, can't you? Hmmmm, yeah..
Plain and simple: If you don't like'em... don't do work for them, don't sell to them. Don't go out and do a half-azz job becasue you drove up in the driveway and spotted a "ZZZZ" bumper sticker or whatever bumber sticker that tics you off.
What? You mean you'd NEVER do that? But you HATE them to the point you'd like to line'em up and mow them down with a machine gun....
Well, aren't you a little bunch of Eichmanns, if the shoe fits, wear it.
That's just makes YOU a low life, dishonest person. Come on, stand up like the big BAD man you think you are and just refuse to provide service to ANYONE based on their political ideas, or the color of their skin, or their sexual preference or religious ideology or a plethora of other things that make them "DIFFERENT" from you!!! That's what "MR" CEO would do.
Everyone with the attitude of "Mr" CEO MUST be doing more business than they want or need already so why service those folks that aren't "WITH"
You're willing to put your pocketbook where your're mouth is, I'm SURE.
Signed: All the dirty names you can call me.
