If it looks right

June 16, 2011

There is a saying “If it looks right, it is right”.  I don’t know who that quote is attributed to but I have a vague recollection that it is has an aeronautical source.  Fortunately it matters not where the source of the statement resides, but more the meaning of it. Keeping with the aeronautical theme […]

The insidious creep of “de-servicing” service is something that torments me almost as much as the pervasive creep of insincere “faux-service” which I’ve already blogged about in my coffee shop experiences.  I know that there is no such term as “de-service”, but I quite like it and anyway it’s that kind of thing that gets you noticed […]
