Norelco Made Good

It took a while, but Norelco finally made up for their poor customer service performance. Please see my November 6th post for details about my request for a case that would hold all the accessories and components that came with the shaver.

There were many phone calls and emails to escalate the issues.

When I finally reached someone at the executive office, I received a case large enough to hold all of the components and accessories.

I was also able to get an accessory that the previous customer
service agents said was no longer available.

The Polls Have it Wrong

It bothers me when pollsters claim to have meaningful results regarding opinions about the upcoming tax bill.

First of all, the people taking the poll do not know exactly what is in the tax bill.

Second, much of their knowledge is based on hearsay.

Third, no one really knows if the predictions about what the bill will achieve will come true.

More for Your Entertainment

More words that are mispronounced:

Heard on MSNBC

He is a “prevert” (pronounced “preevert”)

One would think that if you know what that is, you would be able to pronounce it correctly.

For Your Entertainment

I listen to the radio a lot and also watch cable news regularly. Quite often I hear words that somebody made up. I thought it would be entertaining for viewers of my posts to see them.

Where is the Bias?

I have been thinking about the case of the baker and the wedding cake. Is the issue about who is buying the wedding cake or what is on it? May the baker refuse to apply profane text or pornographic images?

I am reasonably sure that the baker would refuse to make such a cake regardless of the sexual orientation of the buyer.

Grammar 2.1

Trump has been speaking about “feeling badly” about certain things in recent days. However, he and others do not seem to realize that this is grammatically incorrect.

The use of the adverb “badly” in that phrase means the the person has a poor sense of touch.

The correct term should be “feeling bad.”

Perhaps “feel sorry” would be an alternate choice of words.
