#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan. 17th/17 – Complaint

Day 17 of Linda’s #JusJoJan challenge hosted most ably again by Shan Jeniah Check out her blog here.

The Just Jot It January 17th prompt, brought to you by  Willow, blogging at Willowdot21 is: “Complaint.” Use it any way you’re inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Willow as well! Here’s her blog:  https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/

Do you complain?

Have you ever made a complaint?

Or is it too much hassle, or far too embarrassing to raise an issue?

It’s funny, but here in the UK, I think we get plenty of people who are ready to complain about anything, from the weather to the state of the transport network, from the size of new chocolate bars to the current government.

But do they actually do anything?

It’s all well and good discussing what is is wrong with the world, and comparing gripes over a good old British cup of tea, but what about acting on it?

I know as one person you can’t often do much to change the big things, but you can act on smaller issues! So who knows? If there are enough of you who agree on something bigger, maybe you could stand up for what you believe in!

Little complaints can result in minor victories, like when we went out for a meal, and the food was atrocious. A few words in the servers ear, and we got a discounted bill and a free dessert!

Or when the TV bill was creeping up, Hubby Dearest calling and complaining that loyal customers weren’t rewarded, instead, he best deals went straight to new customers… after a little while, we were rewarded with 6 months discounted rates!

I have to say, personally, I find it hard to complain. I end up being the one apologetically pointing out the problem, with a “Sorry to have to tell you but…” and then ending with a “So sorry I bothered you…” I end up being a bit too compliant instead!

I know I am polite, but sometimes it really doesn’t help!

Last year, when we had HUGE issues with our Hotpoint appliances, Hubby Dearest was on a total mission to get our items either repaired, replaced or refunded. He is fantastic on the phone, and though it took a heck of a long time, during which he did the talking and I did the social media campaign, we got cheques through for the washing machine, and dryer, and also the previous dryer which had also been plagued with the same problems!

See, it can do good to complain!

Like a fortress wall

To warm that cold heart

Day 15 of the #JusJoJan challenge set by Linda G Hill. For the next few days, this challenge is hosted by Shan Jeniah. You can read her blog, Lovely Chaos,  here!

A little limerick to make you think…

There was Mercy, Hope and Grace
Three sisters, all fair of face
Now Mercy got wed
That Grace, well she’s dead
And Hope, gone without a trace!

Ritu 2017

Three beautiful sentiments, Mercy, Hope and Grace.

  • Mercy – benevolence, forgiveness,  a type of kindness
  • Hope – the belief that something good can and will happen
  • Grace – Politeness and courteous good will

Unfortunately, they are all dying. We all need to pull together to stop them from extinction!
