One size fit's all

Recommended Posts

There are times when I get annoyed with our " one size fit's all" type of thinking today. Commercial's on tv have reams of fine print that no one can read. People in positions of power lie right to your face, and no one blinks an eye. Directions and instructions cover a dozen different models, and darned if your sure which one covers the one you have. The list goes on.

 Most of the time I live with this as " the cost of living" in this world, but as I said, some times it gets annoying.

 Here's a few recent examples.

 

I was trying to fill out some medical paper work on line and was instructed to submit it on a web site. I couldn't do it. Called and was told I needed to install a different browser on my computer. Told them I had no problem in the past and, was told they updated their system, now I need a different browser. I said, you just E-mailed me all these forms to fill out, you couldn't have added a couple of lines to let me know this. silence.

 

Called a major electronics company to schedule some work on my computer, was told they couldn't schedule it now because they were having " computer issues". Boy, that gives me a warm and fuzzy.

 

Just picked up my new boat and while waiting for good weather, and ice out, I'm reading all the manuals, and the motor manual says during break in to run the motor up to certain RPM's for certain times. Only problem is on this boat motor package, the tachometer is an option. ( luckily I got it). But if you need a tach to break in the motor, shouldn't it be standard equipment?

 

I got the Ulterra trolling motor, and looking at the remote there are no buttons to stow and deploy, or trim up and down. Wait a minute, did I get the wrong remote? The quick reference quide shows a remote with these buttons, and all the videos I watched shows the same thing. More reading on my part from the on line manual ( another pet peeve of mine, why should I have to print it out) seems to indicate I have to go into a "sub menu?" to use these features. I sure hope I never have to trim the motor up in a hurry because by the time I put my reading glasses on, find the rite menu, and hit the rite buttons, I could be in trouble.

  O well, I'm off to get a cup of coffee and get ready for another " one size fit's all" day.

                                       Thanks for listening

                                                         Jim

Tried scheduling my blood work. Automated 😠. After trying several times, I finally did everything right. Went happily to the appt. , and found out that I needed to fast first ( I hadn't ) When I tried to ask an employee if it mattered, I got the feeling she had never spoken to a client before. So I had to reschedule. Took me 6 times trying again to finally reschedule. Now if I can just remember to fast  before I go this time!!!😕

I can assure you that one automated scheduling system does NOT fit all !
