Customer : wow, that’s brilliant advise, thanks I love that u have prepared that just for me.

Brand : Yeh that is our basic advise organised for those in our lowest tier of service. I reckon you may well benefit from the next tier upwards. Perhaps you’d like to fill out this 60 page survey to see if you qualify for our next tiered service, if you’re inclined to put in that effort, please get back to me when you’re done.

Customer : oh brilliant, these people really want to get to know me. Thanks for the survey, I’ll get right onto filling that out now. 20 hours later…

Brand : thanks for filling out that form. Our quality director has told me that you really like hot chips. We respectfully suggest you stop eating hot chips to loose some weight, you could look much better. We don’t associate with some kinds of people, you understand it gives the wrong message about our services. We can put you in contact with a weight loss consultant if you are inclined towards self improvement.

Do you ever get the feeling you’re being used by someone, or a business? That after every meeting you feel less happy, less valuable, less worthwhile and no matter what you do you don’t get respect from the other party?
