You might recall the agency (no names) that I was dealing with last. A month ago this agency wanted a reference from someone they had worked with before. This has been supplied and yet nada. Not a thing from them. So after several unanswered e-mails I rang. This time the assistant sounded different. “I have passed your information on” DUH. I knew that from the last call. I asked for a realistic expectation as to when I might receive a reply. “I have done all I can” was the response. “I have done all I can?” I’m sorry assistant but this not a matter for you to decide. Why this individual could not put me on hold and ask the agent about my reference and its suitability is beyond my comprehension. Instead this individual has decided that my query can stagnate. I don’t understand it. This is the most bizarre approach to business I have seen and I have met an albino Ostrich Salesman who sold African Ostriches to New Zealanders. I am not passing judgement but it’s just out of the ordinary for me.
After this strange encounter and outcome I decided to follow Antony Robbins formula and change my approach. Lets see if that works. it might be unconventional but it might just work.
