But I have given opportunities for some to prove this and yet they even claim that they cannot do anything better. Again, my biggest problem with the insults from you guys is simply that. It's not helpful at all. You want to be helpful, find me online and tell me one-on-one what you want to see me do. Until then, I will not take anything most of you say seriously.
Think about it, if I walk in and insult my waiter from the moment he comes to the table, and then I keep on telling him he does a bad job over and over, yet he has done fine with other places, then I complain to a manager. Do you think the manager would care as much? Do you think my criticism would be helpful to use when I reality, I have done nothing but put a person down who has simply said "happy afternoon" instead of "good afternoon"? They may not have been a 5 star waiter, but they did their job just fine and did it with not only enough skill to keep their job, but to make good tips at times. Because I didn't like that they looked at me a certain way, talked weird, had a skin color I did not care for, or what have you, I was on them the entire night. Most waiters would want to spit in a person's food or make sure something was wrong with it. They would not be able to get better when you insult them the entire time. You have to pull them aside and or simply tell them, in a nice tone, what they can do to fix what you do not like. They cannot change who they are, they cannot change a way they talk. But they may be able to do a few things differently.
I'd love to do things differently to make you guys a slight bit happier. But the issue is that none have you have given me anything to go off of. You simply insult me and go on your way. You never give me an example of what was bad. You don't even bother telling me what to correct really. It's mainly, "you suck, stop writing" or "why are you here". How does one take this as "helpful advice". Some of you claim you've given advice, when you really have not. You've just insulted me personally, then threw in a little something about me having to change my opinion or not comment back to people. None of which are proper help.
So please, give me examples of what I am saying wrong (in articles), and then show me how you'd do it better. Show me what I am doing that is not correct to you. Now if I disagree, I will tell you why I do. But if you give me a great reason why something is, who am I to argue? I am not perfect, but I will have confidence in myself to know I am doing fine. But I am willing to listen if you have anything remotely constructive.
So go ahead, fire away people. I'll be sure to see it and respond back.
