Hmmm...this seems like a puzzle that can be figured out.  I think the Crazies can/will have good suggestions on how to figure this out.  As a good Italian girl, I like throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks.  My initial thought is that your willingness to throw your spaghetti at the wall is an important difference that sets you and your company apart!

Love, love, love this story!  That guy totally understands customer service!  Once upon a time the rules used to be - Rule #1 - The customer is always right; Rule #2 - If the customer is wrong, see Rule #1!! 

Yeah, I know this is very Pollyanna, but if companies approached their customer service with this attitude they'd have a much easier time getting & keeping satisfied customers!

@ginidietrich  - Such a great commentary on the age-old question - What's the ROI of [insert anything here!]? Without goals or a plan, there's no long-term return.  I wonder if that frazzled business owner ever figured out how truthful you were being with him.

Great post, Gini! I LOVE newspapers and actually like newsprint on my fingertips. This painful decline has been a real source of sadness for me, but as the article indicates, it's inevitable. Here in Harrisburg, PA (the capital city of PA, btw) our newspaper is down to only printing three days a week.  I still contend (foolishly hope?) that there are opportunities for newspapers to survive if they become more "niche" by focusing on local news & issues and work in partnership with small business advertisers.  Regarding the diminishing field of journalism...who needs journalists when everyone and anyone is a reporter?
