31. Perhaps a bit... However...
But you gotta get attention on DU to make a point sometimes.

"Perhaps You Know What I Mean By That, Don't You, Mr. Mind Crime!?"

The larger point is that the level of outrage at the 3 year old was way higher.

Also, low expectations for service (in citizens as well as consumers) leads to shitty companies and shitty leaders.

Don't You Think So?
