The State of Customer Service

The state of customer service varies in Johnstown in much the same way that it does everywhere based on the business, gender, age, etc. of the person you are dealing with.  It can be as individual as the individual you are dealing with.  So thus far, I have been pleasantly pleased by my day-to-day dealings with Yankees.

That said, there is always the exception that proves the rule.  You see, we have no official parking at our new house.  I have been hoping to remedy this situation sooner than later, but I am not having a lot of luck.  We have been trying to get an estimate for a carport from one contractor in particular since June.  As it is now August and I still do not have an estimate for what I've asked for, you might understand why I am a bit frustrated.  Today, the contractor's secretary and I had a conversation during which I began to hope that I might just stroke out rather than continue.  Needless to say, I am still looking for a contractor for my "simple" job.  Pray for me and anyone else that might cross my path, please.

Tee hee, it's funny to hear you call people as far south as Pennsylvania Yankees. Up north here, we would never think of them that way. Real Yankees are old-time New Englanders, the kind you find out in the countryside or down on the fishing pier.
