Rotten To The Core 2

Friday January 27 life page 5

I refer to this article written by Eileen Lee on the problem of bad service in Singapore shops.
I have to have a say in this , as I think it is only right that we consumers speak our views , I mean who would like to enter a shop, seconds later only to find that the shop assistants could not care less of what you were going to do ? As proved from what miss/Mrs Eileen Lee experienced, went sales assistant could not be bothered to offer some help to miss/Mrs Lee , she decided not to purchase her item from that shop .
I believe that the Singapore government has emphasized time after time on the issue of courteousy , but although majority of the people are trying to change, there are a minority few who wouldn't care less if you needed their help , and i believe that these people should be dealt with in the right manner ! recently i went on a trip to Sen Zheng for shoppin =g and outside the shopping mall there was a box with forms in them , there a sign was pasted stating , " if you encounter any unhelpful,rude or unpleasant shop assistants please write in and complain to us" i think we should also use these methods to counter "lazy" workers ! thus i end by saying that if you want to be served well , serve others first

I agree with your views on service. The standard of service is appalling in certain shopping centres and small shops. Perhaps what Singapore needs in general is a good wake up call in the form of internet postings.

What do i mean? Well, since there have been websites set up to list down names of criminals...why not websites that post the names of shops that give bad service?
