When someone gives you a notreally an option – one of those best it’s going to get kind of deals (yeah, I know we always have choices) – and then asks if it’s OK. For example, the other day my car conked out, I called AAA, and, after one tow truck came and got me off the side of the freeway, it was going to be an hour’s wait for a second to come to get me the rest of the way back home. After telling me the ETA, the dispatcher asked if that was OK. Uh, no, I want someone here right NOW! No, I didn’t actually say that, but wth?!
