I admit that I have been perpetually confused by the usage of the word "service" in connection with the following:

  • Internal Revenue Service
  • U.S. Postal Service
  • Civil service
  • Federal, State, County, and City public service

Then yesterday, I heard a couple of farmers talking, and one of them was telling the other about how he had brought in a bull to service his cows.

Suddenly, it all became clear.

Heck....I've understood for years the meaning of " service ", basically means one will be getting " screwed " some way, some how, some day!

Automobile Service
Remember from days past....TV Service

I think this is applicable:

PD: Ouch! So that's why it hurts to sit down.

Actually, George's generalization (that it applies to "all businessmen") is bullshit. It's a cheap shot for an easy laugh. I don't deny that there are some unscrupulous scumbags out there, but I've never done business that way, and I now lots of other folks (and companies) that act with integrity and don't screw their customers.

Truth be told, I can't afford to be a scumbag. All of my clients found me by word of mouth...meaning my reputation. Nothing obligates them to keep using my services. If I treated them the way Mr. Carlin says all businessmen behave, they'd tell me to pound sand. He's just wrong.

Even when I was an employee, I always believed that the best job security was excellence. I carried that with me when I went independent, and it has never failed. I just treat people the way I want to be treated.

Maybe more importantly, I don't treat them the way I don't want to be treated. It works.
