Colette shared words of wisdom from her teacher:
You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.”
Dealing with a home project AND the IRS, I’ve repeated that phrase at least a bajillion times already so far this week.
I think I’m going to try moving forward with this business transaction in the exact same manner as the IRS.
- When the project is finished, I’m going to tell workers they will receive a check in about 21 days.
- When they don’t get paid, I’ll ask them to prove they finished the project no fewer than 4 times.
- Upon receiving verification the 4th time, I’ll tell them to wait an additional 12 weeks to get paid.
- Four weeks after that, I’ll send a computer generated notice that states I’ve yet to receive proof of completion along with a list of things needed done immediately.
- When the “throw a fit” call is received, I’ll have someone that can barely speak English answer just to say they need to wait 6 weeks and call back.
Do you ever wonder what life would be like if all businesses conducted transactions and treated customers/clients/vendors in the same manner as our government?
You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.
