This Washington Post opinion piece about short-staffed stores and expectations is pay-walled. But this is what really irritates me:
"Rather than living constantly on the verge of throwing a fit, and risking taking it out on overwhelmed servers, struggling shop owners or late-arriving delivery people, we'd do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations."
Why should we spend hard earned money at a business that doesn't meet our expectations? This is what the Bernie Sanders and AOCs want us to do. Lowering our expectations will encourage providers to lower theirs, and we enter a vicious divebomb that ends up in the gutter.. Just like the old Soviet Union.
