Você recebe péssimos serviços porque talvez seja um péssimo cliente

(0) Comments | Posted June 30, 2014 | 4:49 PM

Eu poderia ter feito uma foto sua e postado a imagem aqui para envergonhá-la publicamente, mas não o fiz. Não o fiz porque não estou querendo ser vingativo, minha senhora. Quero apenas responder à pergunta que a senhora me fez. Este pode ser um "momento educativo", como dizem os políticos,...

Forse il motivo per cui sei mal servito è che tu per primo non sei un buon cliente?

Avrei potuto farti una foto e postarla qui per farti vergognare pubblicamente, ma non l'ho fatto. Questo perché non sto cercando di vendicarmi, cara signora. Voglio semplicemente rispondere a quella domanda che hai fatto. Potrebbe rivelarsi una di quelle che i politici chiamano "una lezione di vita" per te e...

Vielleicht bekommen Sie einen schlechten Kundenservice, weil Sie ein schlechter Kunde sind

Ich hätte ein Foto von Ihnen machen können und es hier posten können, um Sie in aller Öffentlichkeit bloß zu stellen, aber ich habe es nicht gemacht. Ich bin nämlich nicht rachsüchtig. Ich beantworte lieber die Frage, die Sie gestellt haben. Das könnte ein Aha-Erlebnis sein - für Sie und...

Hey Media: If You Don't Know What Happened to the Malaysian Flight, Try Reporting What You Do Know

(23) Comments | Posted March 18, 2014 | 6:54 PM

Generally, when you want to discuss an event but you are not equipped with very many facts, you are left with two choices: you can either ground your conversation in the solid realm of reality -- thereby rendering the discussion more honest but less entertaining -- or you can use...

Vier knallharte Wahrheiten, mit denen sich junge Erwachsene abfinden müssen

(2) Comments | Posted March 17, 2014 | 3:16 PM

Ich bin jung.

Ein „junger Erwachsener" könnte man wohl sagen. Ich bin verheiratet, habe zwei Kinder und Rückenschmerzen, deswegen fühle ich mich nicht immer jung, doch rechnerisch falle ich in den Altersbereich 18-34 Jahre.

Als junger Mensch fällt mir besonders auf, wie viele negative Dinge über junge Erwachsene geschrieben werden....

The Four Harsh Truths That Everyone in My Generation Needs to Accept

(74) Comments | Posted March 10, 2014 | 2:15 PM

I'm a young person.

A "young adult," supposedly. I'm married with two kids and back problems, so I don't necessarily feel like it all the time, but I do fall into that coveted 18-34 demographic.

As a young person, I take special note of all the bad press we tend...

Learn How to Take Criticism, or Be Prepared to Fail

Business owners: I feel your pain.

How do you do it? How do you deal with it? How do you wade into our societal pool and find employees who aren't thin skinned, self-entitled narcissists? How do you successfully weed out the plethora of whiners who fall into a billion pieces...

I Wasn't Ready For Marriage

(35) Comments | Posted February 10, 2014 | 11:58 AM

I met my wife on eHarmony. I was a morning rock DJ in Delaware, she was living in Maryland and finishing up her degree. I drove two and a half hours to pick her up for our first date. I spent most of my bi-weekly paycheck on tickets to a...

Wenn ich deine schlechteste Seite nicht akzeptieren kann, solltest du dich vielleicht besser benehmen

Ich erinnere mich noch gut daran, als ich das erste Mal den „Spielball" in meiner Baseball-Kinderliga erhielt. Ich kann mich zwar nicht mehr an die genauen Einzelheiten erinnern, aber meine Spielstatistik sah mit ziemlicher Sicherheit ungefähr so aus:

0 RBIs, 0 Home Runs, 0 Treffer, 0 Stolen Bases, 0 Spiele...

Si no puedo aceptar lo peor de ti, quizá deberías dejar de ser tan horrible

Me acuerdo de la primera vez que me dieron un premio en la liguilla. No me acuerdo exactamente de todos los detalles, pero estoy casi seguro de que mi ficha sería algo así:

Cero carreras, cero home runs, cero tantos, cero pelotas robadas, cero jugadas, siete errores y cuatro veces...

If I Can't Accept You at Your Worst, Then Maybe You Should Stop Being So Horrible

I remember the first time I was awarded the "game ball" in my Little League. I don't recall the details exactly, but I'm pretty sure my stat sheet looked something like this:

Zero RBIs, zero home runs, zero hits, zero stolen bases, zero plays made on the field, seven errors,...

An Open Letter to Bad Tippers

(2186) Comments | Posted January 6, 2014 | 12:10 PM

A reader, "MJ," sent me this:

Dear Matt,

Can you write something about people who don't tip??? I see you've posted about people who are rude to customer service and people who leave their carts in the parking lot... what about people who don't leave tips. I'd like to tell...

My Kids Don't Make Me Happy

(120) Comments | Posted December 6, 2013 | 10:09 AM

"Kids won't make me happy." I've heard that statement, or statements to that effect, thousands of times. Enough that I should, by now, have a response prepared. But when a guy said it to me a few days ago, I fumbled the answer. I failed him.

If You Shop on Thanksgiving, You Are Part of the Problem

I'm a capitalist. It's not my religion, I won't bow before its altar, I won't kiss its ring, but I believe in capitalism. It's an invention of man and it involves money, so it's not perfect, but I've never heard anyone suggest a better system. So I'm a capitalist.

Attention Shopping Cart Ditchers: Look What You've Done

Look at this. Do not avert your gaze. This. This is what greeted me when I came out of the grocery store today:


It's not about the car. It's not about scratches and minor dents. I don't care about these things. And that's not...

You're a Stay at Home Mom? What Do You Do All Day?

It's happened twice in a week, and they were both women. Anyone ought to have more class than this, but women -- especially women -- should damn well know better.

Last week, I was at the pharmacy and a friendly lady approached me.

"Matt! How are those little ones doing?"

This guy is a future father of twins, and so I feel a certain camaraderie with him:

Dear Matt,

Sorry, I don't mean to bug you. I know you are very busy and probably get a lot of email (that's an understatement lol). Anyways, I found out a few weeks...

To the fan I lost yesterday:

I don't owe you an explanation, but I thought I'd offer one anyway. I do this more for your sake than mine. You see, maybe, as you later suggested, I was in a bad mood. Maybe I could have been a bit more polite...

Podría haberle hecho una foto y publicarla aquí para avergonzarle públicamente, pero no lo he hecho. Es porque intento no ser vengativo, señora. Simplemente me gustaría responder a la pregunta que planteó. Esto puede ser lo que los políticos llaman "una oportunidad de aprendizaje" para usted y para la gente...

J'aurais pu prendre une photo de vous et la poster sur mon blogue pour vous humilier publiquement, mais je ne l'ai pas fait. Je ne veux pas me montrer rancunier, M'dame. A la place, je préfère répondre à la question que vous avez posée. Cela se révèlera pour vous et...
