So, one of our biggest clients made some very nasty, racist remarks on Facebook a few days ago about George Floyd. Since then, word has gotten out to the point that he has been on multiple news stations in that area and all of their advertising contractors have dropped them. Lately, their way to deal with it has been to leave the calls rolled onto us, their answering service, so we get the brunt of the abuse.
I had so many calls today from people cancelling their contracts and appointments, which is exactly what I would do and doesn’t bother me in the slightest…however, the sheer volume of calls from folks who wanted to spew their own racist crap and crazy conspiracy theories against the “libs” really got to me. I had to bite my tongue so many times today, literally, that my mouth is bleeding.
