Elsewhere Online: We don't like you, go away
It looks like Seth Godin has had another run-in with those who like to "Punish the Innocent".
See Don't treat everyone like a criminal, or an idiot, March 16, 2007.
This is one of my biggest pet peeves and yet Los Angeles seems to take this to an art form. A few people abuse something, but EVERYONE has to pay for thier stupidity.

We don't like you, go away
Hey, I know that your last customer was a jerk. I know that you get asked the same stupid questions over and over. I know that people don't appreciate you, they're boors, they're selfish, they're in a hurry.
But, here's the thing: I'm not those people. I've never been here before. I didn't do anything wrong! Don't blame me for them.
