I’ve gotten several apologies and promises to “make this right” after I email saying that these guys screwed me while in Seoul, South Korea this past week & the post that I spent hours looking through and adding up the communication over the months to see if I really was justified in getting angry. I don’t like hurting anyone, but when I’m taken advantage of or when I see others getting abused for no reason except being helpful and innocently trying to do something positive, I will unleash whatever powers may be to make sure the perpetrators of such behavior hear about it. I did when I wrote that two sales guys from the Northeast are literally “tools on Facebook you don’t want to use.”
However, should I forgive these guys? The claim now is that I’m exposing their “business progress” and that it’s vital information to their expansion or introduction into Korea. Well, I don’t see any way around the post except to literally deactivate it because the emails are used to explain why I was fuming after getting no sleep in a hot & humid snoring & farting filled room this past week. I recall countless emails, two voicemails on one of the guys who could of helped me room’s phone, a personal message at the front desk, another live phone call where he confirmed it and a text message reminding him — 8 different forms of communication & not a single call into the hotel or visit (only 200 meters from their hotel) to book my room after promising I had one before coming up to Seoul.
What’s fair? The cost of my travel? The day’s worth of work & potentially detriment to the others I couldn’t help because of my trip up to Seoul? The potential social equity I basically burnt and threw away due to their requests in getting business drawn up for them? The risk I was taking to my job by taking time off to “talk about their business” with them? How about the wasted time waiting for them to take care of my room or the exhaustion the next couple of days due to a horrible night’s sleep? Will money just wipe this out? How much is this worth?
Well, I doubt they’ll even call, nor pay anything for my troubles. Come on…they’re now frustrated that I’ve “flogged them online” and that I’ve exposed them in other ways. Any takers on this bet?
