Bad customer service is EVERYWHERE!!! Even at the Grammys!
Okay, I’ve just got to get it off my chest…. Something has really been bugging me about last night Grammy Awards.
The music was awesome, the dresses and suits were (for the most part) enviable, and it seemed like a party to really celebrate the fantastic songs from the past year.
Now, keep in mind that this is a HUGE event, promoted for months ahead of time, a HUGE expense went into the venue and preparations to celebrate these artists and their accomplishments.
What am I bothered about? I’m really bothered by the unprofessionalism and lack of courtesy and respect that many of the award winners displayed during their acceptance speeches. Saying things like “I gotta go pee” and “Yeah, let’s go get drunk now” among others I think devalues the entire event, AND those of us that listen to and pay for the songs that put those artists on the stage.
I’m not saying that they need to be prim and proper, but they certainly need to display some decorum in the public eye and to value the honors they’ve received.
I figure since the Grammy foundation and the public are the customers of these artists, I felt so offended by the lack of common courtesy and respect displayed by some so prominent.
Am I making too much of this? I’d love to hear your thoughts below…
