Smoke on the Water

It’s been kind of a rough month for me. I have been going through a lot of personal issues that have absorbed most of my time. Because I am a glutton for punishment I have also quit smoking. This is not the first time I have quit, but with God’s help it will certainly be the last.

I have noticed an increase in my agitation towards everything and everyone. Mainly my frustration has been coming from my customer’s at work. I have been in the customer service industry for quite some time, but the last 3 weeks have been hellish. I have had no compassion or patience lately. I hate thinking that this is a result from my quitting smoking, but I believe this to be true.

Have I really become so dependent on nicotine that I need it in order to function properly? I think so. Since I am being so cynical I would like to point out a recent observation. This may make me feel a little better, or much worse. Either way, I almost care.

If you are going to pay someone for a product or service, it is best to understand the product or service you are purchasing. When you buy a car from the car dealership you spend thousands of dollars, yet you should never expect them to teach you how to drive. It is assumed by the Car dealership before you purchase a car that you know how to drive (They also make sure you have a drivers license, which is a good idea – more on that real soon). Buying web hosting is the same. We will help you as much as we can, however we will not help you build a website. It is assumed by us that when you purchase web hosting that you already know what domains, email addresses and FTP Clients are. Maybe we should also check for web design licenses before we allow customers to sign up.

I need some sleep. When I get home tonight I am going to fall asleep while watching Mythbusters. If I am lucky it will include a myth that involves blowing something up and causing a huge fire in the sky.
