Maybe that's what I need to do for hurricane preparedness.

HHis shirt clearly states he is reckless, and he had it laying in the seat. Let them picket.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

LOL..Anna you have such a great eye for detail. I agree. I don't think a couple of nutjobs picketing a business is going to hurt the business at all.

I would encourage them to come and picket, and as soon as they start to look a bit tired I would bring out some free cupcakes. Who's going to turn down a free cupcake? It would certainly take the oomph out of their picketing if they took a break to enjoy the product they are protesting! I think it would be hilarious, but then I am a bit odd. icon_biggrin.gif

Or stand there and offer free mini cupcakes to passerbys with a big friendly smile while they are picketing...lol

Seriously who says they're going to picket somewhere?! Are they bringing their giant inflatable rat too (if you have ever lived in Chicago you know what I'm talking about). Please.

Don't know if this a fact...But, I was told when you refund money you are admitting fault.  Therefore opening yourself up for other liability  Such as punitive damages...You ruined my wedding reception....not just wanting refund for cake only  wanting more than just a refund...maybe new upholstry in car because red stain won't come out etc

A lot of time I'm not sure why people bother responding to posts that annoy them.   Takes much less time to just move along.

 

 

That being said, consult with a lawyer, pay the cleaning bill, or put up with a picket.   I would really have them sign off on responsibility of the cake.   How that isn't even a no-brainer that you assume responsibility for your food item after pick up boggles me.  I guess its the same as all those warning labels "don't use this toilet brush for personal hygiene."  

 

I've seen pickets of lone customers at car dealerships...I just thought it was weird.


and the assumed responsibility of a refund is definitely something to look into.   I worked at a place that had lost a lawsuit for something and we were told to never apologize no matter what happened.   The word "sorry" was stricken from our vocabulary because apologizing assumed responsibility for what happened regardless if the circumstances were in our control or not.

It's called teamwork and that's how a business should operate.

 

I sure can appreciate the only thing you have brought to this thread is boasting of your status as " someone who hires for a company " and personal attacks against myself. Maybe I should start all my replies with the fact that at 19years old I was running a division of a company and had 15 employees on payroll. * rolls eyes *. Or how you just grab bits of anything I said so far and change the original topic to a completely different one ( should employees be engaged in a company and be open about procedures they feel need improvement ).

 

Since you didn't even bother to read, the OP said: he tried multiple times over a length of time  to get some things to change to improve the way the owners do business. And NOTHING was done.

 

Exactly like BatterUpCake said, how long is he supposed to keep beating his head against a wall if they are clearly not listening ? Apparently for ever huh?  Which brings me back to my first post in this thread, the OP should stop caring about trying to get things changed. Management is not open to feedback so why should he bring needless stress or headaches to himself for no reason. All he should do is keep doing a proper job and carry on. OP as plenty of advice already and anything else I add will be off topic so I'm moving on.

I'm not a lawyer, but I've been sued a bunch of times. This is just a guess, but juries and judges have to find something to sway them or base a decision on, so it might not necessarily be a technicality kind of thing, but maybe something that can help you lose the lawsuit. That may be totally wrong. I do know one thing, a false lawsuit can leave a person traumatized and I don't blame them if the words sorry never come out of their mouths again.

 

It's a real shame the effects lawsuits have on individuals and the way things are done in this country in general.

In a civil case they do not have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, but rather by a preponderance of evidence.

Good point and I just looked up preponderance and it means the quality or fact of being greater in number, quantity, or importance.

They just need something to tip it one way.
