Advertisement Ideas: Shut The Front Door!!!
I have lived through The McDuffie Riots in Miami, witnessed The Ferguson Riots, and now I am witnessing The Baltimore Riots!!! In all these cases people were upset with injustices but decided to burn down and loot their own neighborhoods hurting their own communities leaving me to exclaim shut the front door!!! People spend their whole lives to build a business and then a few thugs and people seeking excuses to loot tear it down. I ask what does destroying a police car do to help strengthen a business or improve your community. Now the city council will vote to increase the millage rate so as to pay for the damages of these so-called disenfranchised people. Now businesses will move out of the area thus increasing unemployment. Businesses will think twice before coming to your community and thus you don not increase your tax base. So shut the front door and come up with a better way to solve the issues of the day. I believe it is tragic when anyone’s life is taken unnecessarily at the hand of another human being. If you do not like the way things are going then get involved in a civil manner and change things. You don’t like the way the city council is doing things than run for city council, you don’t like the way the police are doing things then become a police officer and rise up the ranks and change things. In most cases the bad things that are happening are being brought on by yourselves.
Wake up and start taking some responsibility for your actions and stop blaming others. If you dropped out of school that is on you. If you chose thug life instead of working hard that is on you. If every other word out of your mouth is F*** or Mother F***** don’t blame others why you do not have a job. If you are out on the corner slinging drugs and you get busted that is on you. If you run from the police or do not comply that is on you. Unfortunately in life we can not legislate stupidity or morality.
The solution is for us to do our best to coexist for everyone has a stake in making the community a safe place. The thug mentality is doing nothing to enhance the economy. The sense of entitlement is doing nothing to help the situations in our community. Our country and our system is broken and we need to take steps to fix it. The first step is to shut the front door. Then it is necessary to get back to basics and dialogue with one another.
One of the solutions is to have everyone take a look at this philosophy and start to realize that we are more alike than we are different. The are always civil solutions to issues. If our business is slow because our community is in turmoil we must look at ways that we can shut the front door and work together for the betterment of the community so our business will thrive and our community will flourish.

If you do not want bad elements in the community hurting your business then you better literally shut the front door and screen who you are doing business with. It is time to get your priorities straight instead of glorifying thugs start edifying successful business people and start to give back to the community. Instead of putting people down for doing the right thing start doing the right thing. I was told that when you point a finger at someone there are four pointing back at you. I have come to realize that in many cases my trials and tribulations are no one’s fault but my own. Throwing rocks at police officers is not going to bring the dead man back, burning down a community business is not going to improve anything it is only going to make things worse, looting the CVC is only going to force them to close and then where are you going to get your medical supplies. Think of your actions and the adverse affects they are having on your community.
Stop playing the blame game and take responsibility for your actions. If you truly want to change things you must do it is a civil systematic way and understand the only way to change the system is to be part of the system. Instead of calling someone a sell out support them and join them as they are affecting change. If you have a business it is time to take action and se how you can be part of the solution.
I am writing things to make you think like hey no one told you to go out and have 5 babies with 3 different men that was your choice, no one forced you to rob a house and then run from the police that was your choice, no one told you to do a drive by shooting and kill an innocent 2-year-old that was your choice. You can continue to blame others or you can shut the front door and be proactive and positive becoming the change you want to see in this world. if you dress and act like a thug you will be seen and treated like a thug. Wake up people and take responsibility for your own actions.
Take that chip off your shoulder and start to take advantage of the many opportunities you have to make a change. I believe in looking far beyond what someone looks like on the outside and looking on the inside. If you are going to act like an a-hole you will treated like an a-hole. If you don’t change what you doing you will continue to get the same results. It is high time for people to stop with the knee jerk reactions and start to come up with viable solutions.

Many businesses wonder why their business is not doing well and why they are making The You Suck List. It is quite easy they have not made customer service or enhancing the customer experience a priority. They have done things to alienate the existing customer who tells a potential customer when asked about the business and thus the business loses two customers. How many times have you called a large company only to be read a script and no solution to your problem is obtained so you don’t do business with that company and then you use your various platforms to educate other consumers so as to help them avoid the same issues. Sometimes I think that many companies just do not understand that getting on the you suck list hurts their business.

Hey AT&T I am well aware of the money that I owe you for home phone services I don’t need reminder phone calls or letters. The only reason I still have your overpriced home phone service is because I still have dial-up on my home computer as my area doesn’t have high-speed internet available. I am in the process of weighing my options and possibly cancelling my service with you. This isn’t a large amount of money at about $40 per month. I understand your mentality is that my businesses is replaceable, however think about the reach of my platform and who I won’t be recommending your service to in the future.
After what I read today about the person whose Aunt died and Citibank was trying to collect late fees and membership fees. The balance was zero but because the nephew never officially closed the account they stated the charges still apply. What part of my Aunt is dead did they not understand? They will spend more money on mailing to try to collect from a deceased person and not realize that they are never going to see their money? Come on people there has to be some common sense that these people understand. If the known address is a cemetery the chances are the person is dead so simply close the account and move on.
Hello Chase Bank you make the you suck list because of your constant berrating of your customers who fully acknowledge that I owe you money for credit card purchases. Though the account was closed and the card is not being used you still charge interest. Then you call and write letter harassing the debtor when the debtor has been making every effort to make payments. Think about all the paper and the money wasted to collect a debt that has been acknowledged and agreed to be paid. Look at the records and see that payments have been made in a timely manner.
My local franchise group makes the you suck list for not returning phone calls. I called about an event that could have really helped their franchises in The West Boca Raton Area as it is attracting many high school kids, which is one of the primary markets to tap into as they patronage Subway. I personally like Subway but when I call you and have an opportunity for you and you do not return the call you go on the you suck list. You may say but JDOGG they get many calls and can not possibly return everyone. I call bullshit on that excuse you should hire people to just return inquiries so that you have a good rapport with the person as they usually have a platform that can either help your business or hurt your business. Think about it I am participating in an event that has 175 participants signed up mostly your desired target audience and you don’t return a phone call and then you wonder why your business is off . The answer is because you are not making the right contacts and not engaging people who can be advocates for your business.
The reason you make the you suck list is your lack of compassion and caring, your lack of customer service, your lack of marketing skills, your lack of support for the community. The key is to avoid this list by being appreciative of your customers, using common sense, returning phone calls, working with civic organizations to help them promote their events. If you truly want to avoid this list stop the nonsense and remember that one oh shit will ruin 1000 of at a boys.
