But Seriously Folks… Customer Service You Can’t Print

I needed a new printer a few months ago so I headed to my office supply store. I don’t want to publicly bash any company so let’s just say the name of the store was Stooples Office Supply. Moments after I walked in the front door, a well-meaning Stooples sales associate greeted me and began […]

But Seriously Folks… Your Customer Service Should Step Up!

It is incumbent upon me to report an alarming, and I believe dangerous, trend growing in our society today. I am convinced that sauntering is once again on the rise.

A while back the Post Offices found themselves flat broke and were looking for ways to become profitable again. So the brilliant solution they […]

Charles at the dermatologist's office-Smaller

Just for Fun – Ugly Loves Company, Too!

I have to go to the dermatologist regularly these days, because when I was younger I thought it’d be a great idea to lay out in the sun and burn myself to a crisp. Yes, it was stupid to expose myself to lethal doses of radiation, but on the other hand, I had a really […]

But Seriously Folks… Can Your Character Identity Be Stolen?

I was sitting in a hotel room a couple of months ago when I received the following instant message from a lady I didn’t know: “Mr. Marshall, I believe you have been hacked. Some creep has been messaging me on Facebook, wanting money. I did an image search and found you, and you don’t seem […]
