Re: Why give your services away.
Posted to Shop Management Forum on 11/26/2015


Both the subject matter and the spelling give away the age. Written in "text talk", it's easy to understand. Modern technology has butchered much more than our language. Spell checking and our smartphones have made us slaves to where we don't memorize phone numbers, multiplication tables, know how to spell, or know how to do long division, and a host of other routine tasks required just a generation ago.

It's sad to see that even with the advent of the internet, the younger generation doesn't use it to its greater advantage like it's meant to be. There's centuries of shop management knowledge on this forum alone. The younger generation are supposed to be more internet and technology savvy than most, right? How many older adults toss the TV remote to their kid to have them program it?

Now that Chanc has had his "awakening", it will be interesting to see how long he remains a client of Management Success. http://managementsuccess.com/
