365 Black

August 25, 2009

Leave it to McDonalds. If I were black, I’d be offended. How are the first and third sentences related? I couldn’t find anywhere in this site where I could “win exciting once-in-a-lifetime” opportunities.  And by the way, the only thing McDonalds has touched in my life is my cholesterol reading. That’s why I don’t eat that crap anymore.

“At McDonald’s®, we believe that African-American culture and achievement should be celebrated 365 days a year — not just during Black History Month. That’s the idea behind 365Black.com. It’s a place where you can learn more about education, employment, career advancement and entrepreneurship opportunities, and meet real people whose lives have been touched by McDonald’s. Plus, you can also have a chance to win exciting once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. So make sure you visit often — you just might get inspired.”

I’m NOT Lovin’ It.

But I don’t WANT a DAMNED website!

December 31, 2008

The client was, I believe, genuinely frustrated. He really didn’t want a web site for his business, but several of his larger customers expressed the desire for convenience of ordering from their desk.  (Duh.)
 
Sooo, the client reluctantly agrees.  He calls us.  We do the site. Nice and simple.  But not without listening to him rant and rave about what a supreme pain in the ass this is going to be.  He’s really feeling inconvenienced by his customer who will now make him check his email regularly.  He’d rather answer the phone.  He’d rather get a faxed order. Damn those customers who want to do business with him THEIR way.  
Change is such a bitch.  And after I got done lecturing him, so am I.

Yes, there really are people out there who are like this.   

We work with them every day.  Hey, it’s a living.


Bless their hearts.
